About This Item
The Eclipse 1M is the ideal way to experience the pleasure of sailing on a gentle Summer’s breeze, or the excitement of racing your own America’s Cup racing yacht. The large one meter (39″) hull is precision blow-molded from high-strength ABS and features durable, reinforced rip-stop nylon sails that arrive pre-printed with bright, attractive graphics. Easy to assemble, the Eclipse 1M arrives with most of the difficult and time consuming rigging already completed, making final assembly quick and convenient. A sealed, water-resistant deck hatch protects internal electronic components such as the “drum-style” sail winch servo which delivers additional power and smoother, more scale-like functionality than regular servos.
Perhaps the most impressive feature of this sailboat is the size – measuring over 7′ (213cm) tall from the bottom of the ballast bulb to the tip of the mast. The Eclipse 1M is an RTR boat, and arrives with everything required to start sailing except for the AA batteries. In addition to the pre-trimmed and decorated hull, inside you’ll find a 2.4GHz radio system, rip-stop nylon sails and all the rigging parts necessary to easily build the mast. It also includes a lightweight boat stand for display and maintenance. Best of all, the Eclipse is quickly and easily dismantled for storage and transportation.
