The 'Crown Jewel' in the RS Sailing youth sailing lineup, the Feva packs a powerful punch and a wide range of abilities. Its incredible youth sailing class has sparked fleets all over the world. For more than just kids, the Feva is a great recreational single hander for adults.
One of the most popular boats we sell, the RS Feva is a great option for doublehanded youth sailing. As a transition from singlehanded boats, the RS Feva is a better size for younger or smaller sailors than traditional fiberglass options, and offers a high performance sail plan with asymmetric spinnaker. With increased presence in North America the RS Feva is one of the fastest growing fleets in the world. Not just for kids, the RS Feva transitions easily to a recreational singlehander for adults.

The Feva was designed for kids, wasn't it?
That was the initial design brief, and remains one of the most popular uses of the boat in Europe and North America. That being said, we have a lot of adult customers who sail the boat singlehanded, or with their kids. It's a great all around boat, including for 'adventure sailing', teaching modern sailing theory with an asymmetrical spinnaker.

Boat Delivery is going to be expensive, isn't it?
Despite their size, we are able to ship most boats around North America safely and inexpensively. While boats don't qualify for free shipping, we do subsidize the cost for each customer to keep it reasonable. To see your exact cost, add a boat to your cart and it will show an exact flat rate cost as you checkout. Typically, small boats ship for $300-$600, medium sized boats ship for $400-$800, and larger boats, such as the RS Venture or RS21, ship for $700-$1200.
