Tamiya Yamaha Round the World 1 Meter RC Yacht.

One of finest RC Yachts ever produced. It is a 1/20th scale replica of the full sized Yamaha that won the Whitbread Round the World race in 1994.

These boats have become extremely difficult to find. This particular boat was a gift to my late husband – he built the boat and treasured it, but sadly only got to use it once.

I know he would want someone to get it that would complete it, and be able to enjoy it as he would have.

I have posted some pictures of the boat that show it to be in excellent condition. To me it looks like everything is there with the exception of the decal kit. If I can find it, I will include it. I am told that Tamiya still has the decal set on their web site. Assembly instructions are included.

Currently the boat is disassembled for shipment – It will be packaged with great care to protect it.

It has a radio and servos that are included. The sail servo may not be the right one according to a friend that is very familiar with these particular boats. The radio is a 27mhz - it came with the boat when we got it.

I am asking $425 plus actual shipping cost – payment via Pay Pal buyer to pay Pay Pal Fee
Prefer local pick up but happy to ship. Destin, Florida
