Red Ant Radio Yachts started in a backyard shed when a young enthusiastic skipper and a wise sailor shared a passion for innovation and winning. Our first design was a strip-plant balsa IOM which over time has developed into boats that are more than competitive against more expensive alternatives.
Together we’ve won 8 state and national championships and have been placed in the top three rankings many times.
We’re also passionate about the yachting community, having held committee roles in the Albert Park club and International Marblehead Class Australian Champions Grand Master (2019 and 2020) and International Ten Rater Class Australian Champions Grand Master (2019 and 2020).
Radio Yachting is fun, social, and competitive, and Red Ant are excited to be a part of the sailing community. We offer products that are an alternative to current boats with the goal to be competitive at the highest level.
