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 RS21 One Design is a modern keelboat designed with corinthian racing at its heart – keelboat racing the RS way.  Finished and completed so you can enjoy close one design sailing without the complex choices. The powerful rig and distinct chines are balanced by well-mannered boat handling and an ergonomic deck layout to ensure everyone sailing has a key role to play and yet ease of use. For those passionate about our planet, the RS21 was developed with sustainability at the core of its design not only in terms of materials but also the carbon footprint of the supply chain, a reduction in single use plastics and efficient logistics.
