The Century Twin Motor Racer is a fantastic-looking remote control boat. It has a detailed design and truly looks like the real thing. It even has imitation-leather seats and a steering wheel. The boat is really easy to drive and is a great starter boat for beginners.

This boat is off-white and made of a thick, durable plastic. It has a curvy body and tinted windshield. It is a ton of fun and really grips the water, turns easily and has no problems with waves. It's a fun boat to race and works great in the pool, pond or lake.

It is 30 inches long and comes with some sticker decals, which are fun for a young one to install so they can customize and design it to their liking. Once you decide on the stickers, the RC boat truly looks authentic.

This motor racer has a range of 200 feet, which is shorter than those of other boats but will suffice. It can reach speeds of 15 to 20 miles per hour. Since the boat has dual motors, it is powerful and can maneuver through the water easily.

This boat doesn't appeal to hobbyists or boating enthusiasts, and it certainly isn't the best remote control boat. It's geared more toward children and beginners. It has several child safety features, like a mechanism that prevents the boat from operating out of the water. Cooling fans prevent the boat's dual motors and dual propellers from overheating, failing or causing burns. The boat is difficult to mod because many of its inner parts are glued inside and aren't removable.

This RC boat comes with everything you need to hit the water. In the box you will find the transmitter, a display stand, boat battery, wall charger and extra propellers. Unfortunately, you have to provide the transmitter battery.

This radio controlled boat has a 30-day warranty, so if something goes wrong, you can reach out to the manufacturer. You can find customer reviews of the boat and watch YouTube videos to check its performance.

The Century Twin Motor Racer is a great RC boat for kids and kids at heart. It has a handful of safety features and is sure to entertain beginners. And if you are a collector it will look brilliant on a shelf, too, because of its detailed design.
