Due to our store relocating over 200 miles away from our previous store, the production of the Spyder boat is currently on hold.
Available in gloss black.
Never before has the UK seen such a boat.
A high quality, hand crafted bait boat unlike any other.
The first propellor boat that can actually be operated through most weedy waters.Over 12 months to develop, design and pro-to type with no expense spared and no other boat compares. Guaranteed.
Quality, Unique, Robust, Durable – Here we have the highly anticipated Black Widow, SPYDER MK2 Bait Boat
The Boat is now only available in gloss black.
About the Spyder Boats:
The Black Widow Boat has been developed by not just Anglers but a team of ”Radio Controls Geeks” for over a year.
Combined, our team have over 35 years in RC (radio control) knowledge which is essential when creating what we believe to be quite simply one of the all round best bait boats ever to hit the UK fishing Scene.
This machine has been especially designed for carp, pike & cat fishing in mind.
Large waters, small waters.
You may see many boats being either too large or too small so this is where the Spyder boat comes in to its own. Perfect, manageable size.
Features – two great sized hoppers which are capable of taking out up to 1.2 kilo of any bait in each hopper and your rig.
This is the fastest boat ever made in the UK and you get up to a three hour running time per battery charge which is an unbeatable combination.
Mainly down to many months of lake testing various motors, shafts, speed controllers and propellors to achieve the best speed, strength and battery consumption.
Please note that now on every boat the lights are controlled via a switch on the remote handset.
There is now only one switch on the rear of the boat (mains power).
New remote on 2.4ghz Digital (internal boat aerial)
Now with single right joy stick steering
Requires 8 x AA Batteries (DURACELL Recommended)
The First Propellor boat to go through thick weed:
*The fastest bait boat built in the UK to date with gradual control.
This is great when heading out at distances. If you don’t like to go fast, just ease back on the controls. By doing so you’ll increase your boats running time by an extra 30-50%.
*Up to three hours continuous running time on one fully charged battery (depending on conditions).
Takes 1 x 12 volt 9amp hour lead acid battery.
*Perfect sized boat, not too large and not too small.
*Twin Independent Hoppers (good length)
With a flawless dropper design.
*Wireless operating range of over 500 metres.
*Lights are now controllable from remote handset, not boat.
*Extra deep Tri-Hull design.
This gives the boat extra stability for choppy waters.
*Bright white L.E.D light in each hopper.
For use when baiting up at night.
*Solar Panel charging socket (Gold)
This socket on the rear of the boat will except most 12volt bait-boat solar panels (see accessories)
Main Power Switch and Solar Panel charging socket:
*10mm white Light on front of boat, two smaller 5mm blue lights on rear and red/green on each side.
Most bulbs are held in place with Chrome Bezels for that lovely finishing touch
*Boats Available in acrylic capped ABS solid plastic.
*Custom made weed guards formed from aluminium.
*Quality Brass shafts and couplings used on each motor:
As well as grease filled shafts to give the ultimate smooth performance.
Many boat parts are Hand Crafted in our work shop in Sussex.
Even the carry strap is made in house:
We believe in keeping as many items for the Spyder boat purchased as close to home as possible or at least within the UK.
The Hopper doors and Weed guards are from East Sussex
Motors, Shaft’s and Propellors from Telford
LED’s, bezels and cabling from Colchester, Essex.
Below pictures of the cast mould just before the plastic forming takes place:
Below is just some of the ‘Branded’ Components used.
Two M-Troniks Viper Marine speed controllers.
These are totally waterproof as well as having a failsafe built in. Known throughout the model boat world of being the best Marine Speed Controllers ever made.
Two Hi-Tec Servo’s.
Extremely reliable and have been known to last for many years of hard use. Combined with precise resin gears and SMT circuitry.
We do our own bit of magic to these servos before fitting to the Spyder.
This isn’t hard work but very time consuming however we’re very confident in absolute reliability.
Believe it or not, we have had a servo working under water!
What we believe…
Many bait boats nowadays are controlled internally by circuit boards. In our own opinion are a Big No No.
Here at Spyder we believe ‘How it used to be’ is the way forward in radio controlled boats.
This costs far more to produce a boat however, is much more reliable and parts are easily replaceable/available.
As you will see for yourself there has been absolutely no expense spared with these Bait Boats.
It takes nearly ten hours to hand build each boat alone.
Quite simply some of the best internal parts are used which means absolute reliability.
Do you really need a reliable boat?
For example, Bait-Boats unlike a TV or Microwave don’t just sit on a shelf.
There on the move in all sorts of weather conditions all year round so these need to be made very well or faults will occur.
We can honestly say you’ll be blown away by the build quality and sheer robustness of the Spyder.
