RS Zest

Get to know the RS Zest! RS Sailing launched their latest model in the range during the Southampton Boat Show in September. The RS Zest is a brand new compact boat that delivers more crew space and practical, enjoyable features than older rivals.

Twenty years of experience in the design, production and usage of family, training and club boats lead to a long list of developments that would, together, redefine the practical usage – offering more efficiency for operators and more unintimidating fun for sailors.

The opportunity to comprehensively move the game forward led us to replace our popular RS Quba model with an entirely new boat that we believe renders existing rivals obsolete.

"...An instructor and two youngsters, or parent and two kids works well. This feature increases the scope and value of the boat..."

Boats in this sector are commonly sailed by two, particularly in training use, but must be usable by one person – youth or adult. The capability to carry a helmsman plus two young crew (three sailors in total) would be a significant benefit for many centres and families – leading to more cost-efficient ratios, so this has been a key goal for the RS Zest.

Existing models in this size range are cramped for the crew and often sail with a bow-down attitude. The volume of the RS Zest hull has been increased, with the centre of buoyancy further forward to support higher crew weight and give improved handling when fully loaded. Part of the volume increase has been achieved through waterline beam which also noticeably increases the stability to an exceptional level for a boat of this size.

A modern family or training dinghy with features that move the game forward. Big enough for an instructor and 2 or 3 pupils – perfect for Mum or Dad and youngsters – small enough to handle easily ashore and afloat.

RS Neo

A single hander with sparkling performance, easy handling and real durability, the RS Neo delivers maximum reward for minimum hassle. A step-up in speed without the demands of more radical designs. Composite spars and advanced sail design on a stable and easily driven hull combine with the strong, low maintenance RS rotomoulded construction system. The RS Neo is accessible, affordable and exciting.
