US One-Meter Venom Sailboat

Tippecanoe Boats is proud to have taken over the production of the incredibly fast and agile US One Meter Venom racing sailboat. This design has an illustrious history; between 1994 and 2000, the Venom, as produced by Bob Sterne (Bob’s Boatyard), won six out of seven of the U.S. One Meter Class Championships (as impressively, the winning Venoms were skippered by five different skippers during that time).

Tippecanoe Boats is continuing with Bob Sterne’s design and is proud to announce the re-introduction of the Venom sailboat to our line of fast and high-quality RC sailboats.

Through extensive testing, we have designed a layered carbon fiber and kevlar hull that is infused with a vinylester resin. The result is a hull that is even stronger and stiffer while still remaining incredibly light, fast, and otherwise identical to its kevlar-only predecessor.

At this time, we are excited to be selling two crucial components of the Venom: the lead keel bulbs and the bare hull. As soon as possible, we will be adding additional parts, and, eventually, an entire Venom kit. Please stay tuned as we integrate the Venom into our line of high-quality RC sailboats!
