Remote Control Speed Boat

Updated on October 6, 2014

Are You Looking for a Remote Control Speed Boat?

A remote control speed boat is a great way to have fun at a lake, pond, or even a swimming pool. When purchasing an electric RC boat, you will need to first consider where you plan to play with it. For instance, a miniature boat may be perfect for using in a swimming pool, but may not be strong enough to withstand the ocean's waves. Conversely, a large, powerful boat designed for use in a lake will have no where to go if you put it in your bathtub.

You will also need to consider the range the boat can reach. You probably want one that can go a few hundred feet at minimum. It is also important to know how long the boat can be used before needing a fresh charge. You'll want to know how it is charged. Many RC boats charge directly from the remote control, perfect for keeping the fun going when you're away from electrical outlets. Some, however, have a separate plug similar to a phone charger. If you plan on using your remote control speed boat long term, it is also important to find out the availability and cost of replacement batteries. Batteries often do not hold their charge as well the older they become. If yours loses its ability to charge, you will have to purchase a brand new boat if the battery is not replaceable.

The following boats are a small representation of the wide variety of excellent remote control speed boats that you can find on the market.
