About Us

Jelačić Sailing - About Us

We're experts in the manufacture of speedy "IOM" radio-remote controlled boats. Our boats built in Croatia, are indeed, fitted to endure any challenge, and to win anything.

Radio controlled sailboats made in Croatia are moulded by Robert Grubiša and tuned by Zvonko Jelačić.

Why have we made these changes?
In order to have IOM RC sailboats tuned to the edge of their abilities capable of winning, it was a necessary step.

So, you think you can fly?
Well no, we do sailboats. Our workshop offers a lot of goodies in the world of "IOM". Most gear/parts we manufacture ourselves, some things we purchase from verified manufacturers. In short terms - we can do anything with your boat!

You were saying?
Boats "Ready to Add RC and Rigs" are offered with following items included:

- Hull moulded by Robert Grubiša in moulds made WITH CNC.
- Bulb made in metal mould
- Fin/bulb are mounted using purposely made jigs for correct alignment with hull
- Boat, fin and rudder are tested for leakage before delivery
- Boat will be ready for installation of RMG winch (with self-tensioning spiral drum) and standard rudder servo size
- Jelačić servo/tiller connector
- Set of deck patches
- Comprehensive instruction how to add RC and rigs on the boat

We benefit from your success. As manufacturers, it is in our best interest to keep evolving sailboat & sails, through past few years progress has been astonishing without question.

Rewards were there to fulfil the hard work.
IOM sailboat optimisation is our standard procedure, but if you have an RC sailboat that needs to be optimised, just set sails to our workshop and we'll put it under our hammer until it's perfected!
