RS Sailing has hit upon the idea of creating a sailing dinghy that is ideal for a family holiday. This is not a replacement for your superyacht. The new RS Venture is more like an add-on. It can accommodate up to 6 people (about 500 kg) and is perfect for those adventurous little explorations during luxury yacht trips. All the little hidden coves that remain inaccessible for the luxury yacht, become easy to reach when you are steering the RS Venture.
The RS Venture is designed for sailing as well as mooring on the waters. Buyers have the option of fitting an outboard engine on the back of this sailing dinghy. The boat is 16 feet in length, relatively lightweight and easy to handle. At the same time, the width and low freeboard ensure that this luxury dinghy remains stable at all times. Buyers have the option of getting retrofitted spinnaker kits to add a little punch to this otherwise peaceful sailing boat.
The sailing boat is designed to provide plenty of leg space. The cockpit is spacious and the mast is pushed forward to create more space. There is place to clip your stowage bags into the store area, ensuring a tidy cockpit area. Owners also have the option of turning the RS Venture into a fine swimming platform by fitting in a boarding ladder.
The RS Venture is sure to be cheaper than your regular superyacht. Yacht owners planning to purchase this as an add-on for their luxury watercrafts can avail of RS Sailing‘s bespoke service to customize the dinghy to their yacht. The dinghy is still being tested ahead of its launch at this year’s Southampton Boat Show.
