RC Boats


Here at Hillsboro Hobby Shop, we carry many of the major brands of Radio Controlled boats and ships including Aquacraft, Proboat, Dumas, Billings and Hobbyzone, to satisfy your individual preferences and needs.  All price ranges and sizes are available. You can build your boat from the ground up. Lay a keel, put up bulkheads, and start laying plank. Paint and finish, install running gear, and go sail. You can also buy Ready to Sail (RTS) or Almost-Ready-to-Sail (ARS).

We stock and order replacement parts for many of the top name boats. We have several major distributors that allow us to find “out of stock” parts or special order different boat models and get them here quickly. We like special orders!

We carry several manufacturers’ accessories, add-ons, supplies and equipment including: motors, speed controls, props, radios, batteries, chargers, power supplies and adapters to complete your RC boat. For the gas or nitro boats, we carry the fuel, grease and tools .

To help customize your boat, check out our decals, winches, tool racks, lighting systems, paints and many more products to make it uniquely your own. Performance upgrades, including props, motors, lithium polymer (LIPO) batteries are only a few of the items available to make your boat perform better in a variety of lakes and rivers.

We have skilled staff to help identify problems and find the correct parts for your particular boat. We do everything from tune ups to total rebuilds. Our friendly, on staff mechanics, are skilled in discussing issues, identifying problems, and making recommendations before any repairs are done.

All work is done at a low rate, tested and guaranteed from workmanship defects, and done in a timely manner.

For any questions or unusual problems, our manufacturers’ high priority is customer support, and is only a phone call away.
