Beam : 30 cm max
Draught : 42 cm max
Electric propulsion : 120 W / 500 kV max

The Battle Yachts should have an insign on the top of their main sail. This insign could be custom inside a circle of 50 mm of diameter. This box rules will go along with a rating formula (in development) to balance the performance of the different yachts by adapting the boost timer.
MODEL YACHTS HISTORY
Model yachts were historically intended for young lords to learn the basics of sailing. They became then one of the favorite outdoor activity of city children between 1850 and 1950. Composed mainly of rental sailboats and small mechanical toy boats, these majestic fleets sometimes included real pond giants. The latter were exceptional toys intended more for adults than for children, real collectibles, technical and aesthetic marvels, often made by passionate or professional craftsmen.
