It's been a great year of RS Sailing with fantastic product launches and great sailing experience

Paris Boat Show 8-16 December 2018

RS Zest

This year we began full production and since then it has been an overwhelming success. Sailed by families, schools and clubs with more crew space and practical, enjoyable features it is creating fun for everyone. Singlehanded or with two/three kids on board. Sailing School owners and Instructors love the practical design solutions. Rotomolded polyethylene construction makes the RS Zest almost maintenance free – this is a boat to get you onto the water and into the wonderful world of sailing.


After the launch of the RS CAT14 at the Salon Nautique in Paris last year, more and more centres in and outside of France are selecting the RS CAT14 as the pathway Catamaran class. This boat takes the enjoyment and handling associated with beach cats to a new level. Stiffness and balance defy the cost-effective durability of the RS CAT14’s construction – making the boat perfect, not only for training and recreational sailing, but also as a true performance pathway class. 



RS Sailing has made big and exciting steps towards new ways of participation in our sport through the launch of the RS21With its modern design with fantastic features and eco-friendly solutions the RS21 is the only keelboat on the market really prepared for the future sailing concepts. The iconic design has appealed to people worldwide.Fleet initiatives are popping up from Norway to Italy and from Spain to Estonia. In 2019 and 2020 more and more league racing organizations will have the RS21 on the start line. Mainly as this boat is specifically designed for fleet ownership, appealing for the eye, easy to maintain and a huge retreat to sail. It is no surprise this boat is chosen by the USA National league racing organization, nominated by many yacht awards around the world and winner of the SAIL Magazine Best Boats 2019.
