Hi.
 Looking at the dimensions and the fact it has spray rails it fits in with the size of a huntsman hull. With a freelance cab and the heli pad possibly based on some millionaires yacht.
 Is it worth $300 ?  would depend on whats inside ie: any radio gear and motors ic or electric batteries etc 
 To quote an Americanism its covered in "Crap" the hull should be white would need steam cleaned first if you bought it

Hi.
 I can see from the hole in the stbd side of hull where the water cooling stub is that it had an ic engine for motive power.
 If the boat takes your fancy I would ask for more photos so you can see what the rest of it looks like I would`nt buy it on strength of that one photo  as we say here you could end up buying a "pig in poke".   I would particularly want to see inside the hull as the ic engine can make a bit of a mess with oil and fuel.

TBH, that type of boat goes down well at any club.........but club members being notoriously stingy, a price of 80 - 100 would seem a fair price...............if it went to an auction house he'd be lucky to get 80 sobs for it...even less on fleebay neil.

Auction house for rc boat?

Would it be possible to use eletric motors instead of an engine on this boat?

hi.
RE: eletric motors instead of an engine on this boat. of course the modern brushless motor would possibly give the same performance as a small ic
engine.
