Rescue 17  Ready-to-Run Electric Scale Fireboat - Special Nuremberg Preview! Tech Notice Tech Notice

The hull gleams, the lights shine — and the water cannon really works!

Authentically detailed - and ready for action!

It's a one-of-a-kind fireboat — and it's ready to hit the water just moments after it's out of the box. It's not just the only large-scale fireboat RTR available; it's also the only one that offers such a broad range of fine detail with the ease of factory installation. There are working lights in the cabin and on the communications mast, rotating, working water cannon on deck and authentic detail everywhere else you look, too. It makes superb scale details easy to enjoy — and it's so complete, all you add are batteries and a charger.

  • Water cannon rotates 120° — and shoots a stream of water up to 10 feet.
  • Bright, 10-piece LED lighting system
