Brand new for 2019. Modern, cutting edge sportboat fun.
The RS21 is the revolution sport boat sailors have been waiting for. Sustainably made, fully retractable electric inboard propulsion, and strict rules to prevent big spending. It's the boat you want to go fast on with your best friends.
The RS 21 has arrived to US shores in time for the 2019 season. It is a boat that appeals to both individuals looking for a modern racing platform - as well as clubs/programs and fleets looking for a reasonably priced small keelboat.
