Default Looking for a boat need some assistance

I am looking for a boat to take to the beach that can go in small waves but can be controlled more than 100 yards away maybe up to 200 yards away. I am pretty new and have been looking at different models. Does anyone recommend one that isn't too expensive but yet is fun for my son and I.

thanks,

BBFKY

What is the range of this boat, I have found one reference that says 200 Ft Does anyone know the approximate length? I was hoping for at least 300Ft maybe more.

thanks for the replies
