I was totally surprised and excited to finally get a seagoing technic set. Combined with some ingenuity and the proper parts this set x2 yielded a great though somewhat sluggish pond patroller. By itself with the bluetooth batmobile I had a really fun relatively quick differential steering catamaran. Lego dudes, please make me a bigger boat prop!!! Add it to a new series of technic speedboats if you have to. Great summertime fun!! I highly recommend this kit!

Good for displaying in water... but that’s it.
I would recommend this to a friend!
Purchased for: Son
I purchased this set for my son, who is 4 but has a basic idea of Lego’s. Now, that being said I purchased the yellow single hull boat when it was out and thought it was pretty cool. I was even more excited for a boat that would float. I feel it’s a bit misleading.
Between the points where the steering fins attach to the boat there is an open hole. So if you were to play with this in a bath tub to any degree the hulls will take on water and sink.
That’s my only gripe. Otherwise it was a cool build and can be displayed along with the other sailboat if you can build a cradle for it to sit on with the stabilizers tucked all the way in.
Not disappointed, but not impressed. The other green speedboat released in the Lego city line takes on water too. Should’ve been one piece hulls. Oh well, maybe next time.

I bought this as a birthday gift for myself a little while ago. I built it pretty quickly with my son and took it for a test float in the tub. Overall, I really loved the features of the set. The colors are bright and flashy, not much unlike real racing sailboats. The movable rudders, sails and keels on such a relatively small set are great to have. I typically get the really big Technic sets for their extra attention to detail, but was impressed with the level of detail packed into this relatively smaller set! The loss of a star is attributed solely to the fact that the hulls aren’t entirely waterproof. The boat was in the tub for just 10-15 mins, but I noticed that it was draining water when I took it out. Made me glad I didn’t try letting it float on the lake first...wouldn’t have enjoyed fishing it from the bottom. I understand the complaints some have voiced about it being hard to display, but I think it would actually be pretty easy to fashion a LEGO stand out of spare parts to lift the boat so it’s not sitting so precariously. I suppose it could have been built into the set, but then it would have cost another ~$10. In the end, I would recommend this set to others - just keep in mind that it will take on water during extended water excursions.
As a sailor and a Lego fan, I am super impressed with this model, especially when compared to the previous attempts at sailboats. First, the floating aspect is awesome. Finally it gives us a REAL hulls that floats! The amas are actually very modern, cutting edge even. Reverse plumb bow is amazing. Mast and sails are much more in ratio to real boats. The mechanics are really novel with adjustable centerboard heights and individual sail trim. I suspect the designer is the same as with previous sailboats and finally got to build what s/he wanted. The best part for me, and worst for some, is that it is designed to be FLOATED and not displayed. I can see a ton of new MOCs coming from the new pieces introduced in this set. It is not an advanced set but it is a great representation of what a modern racing catamaran would look like. I plan to try to do some fun rebuilds that were not possible until this set. How about a HARD sail for that boat. Lego lends itself to hard sails very nicely
