The most in-demand best selling RC yacht in the world!

The Joysway DragonForce 65, or DF65 for short, is by far currently the best selling RC yacht in the world. The reasons are as simple as the concept and design itself, which was developed in collaboration between Joysway and three top performance yacht designers (Mike Weston, Mark Dicks and John Tushingham) known as the group of three.

This partnership has resulted in the DF65 which was first released in February 2013, an affordable competition class RC yacht that is so affordable it can enjoyed by serious competitors and non serious hobbyists alike.

Sleek lines and competition-developed sails make the DragonForce 65 race, perform and compete against even those yachts that would be 10 times the price!

The DragonForce 65 is a recognised competition RC yacht that can be sailed in the restricted DF65 subclass, or may be sailed within the RG65 class with well defined rules and RC associations that are located worldwide. The boat is based on the ICE design with an ABS hull, profiled aluminium fin and moulded plastic rudder. The rig is a full sized, low aspect RG65 rig with carbon spars and a ball raced gooseneck.

“The brilliant thing about owning a Joysway DF65 is that whether you are near rural Tasmania, Wellingtom New Zealand, Manly NSW, Perth WA or in Saitama Japan - the probability of a reasonably sized group of enthusiasts also sailing the DF65 near you is very high...”

Having a Joysway DragonForce means that, should you like to, you can usually find a location local to you to learn sailing tips and how to configure sails or rigging, compare (and hone) your sailing skills against others, participate in local, state, national or international competitions.
