The Back Bay Skippers were established in 2008, with the assistance of the New Hampshire Boat Museum (NHBM) and the Laconia Model Yacht Club, to promote radio controlled sailing in the Wolfeboro area. Their mission was to build and sail a fleet of sailboats, while providing participants and spectators an avenue to enjoy this hobby.

The Back Bay Skippers will host a model-yacht-building course at NHBM, where you get to build a boat of your own!  Everything you need, except paint, will be supplied, and our model-building experts will guide you every step of the way. They know all the tricks to help you build a yacht you can be proud of!

The US12 Sailing Kits are a more advanced model build. If you are interested in a US12 Kit please fill out the form below and the Back Bay Skipper’s Commodore will contact you with further instruction.

FOR SALE: One partially built US12 kit $400.00 

We presently have one US12 kit in stock, with completed hull and radio equipment! Mast, booms, sails and running rigging will need to be completed. If you are interested please fill out the form below and check the box indicating your interest.
