Nautilus Drydocks

Today, the Nautilus Drydocks has grown into a thriving business. With the acquisition of in November of 2016, a wide range of new product offerings were added to our offerings and the Sub-Driver forums were brought under the banner of the Nautilus Drydocks.

While originally a platform to showcase my builds, the site is now much more. It is an information resource for those new to the submarine world or who have been in it for years. It is a place to source high-quality, affordable kits, electronics and components for R/C submarines, and it is a forum to discuss the hobby in general.


We have high hopes that the Nautilus Drydocks will continue to grow, adding new products from trustworthy vendors as well as our own in-house line of offerings as well.
