The RS1900 is developed for the most demanding yachtsmen, who aim for a distinguishing style, powerful performance, and perfection in execution. Today, many owners or prospect owners in the 60ft to 65ft bluewater sailing yacht segment seek simplicity in operation without having to compromise on size, performance and volume of their yacht. The design philosophy of the RS1900 series has been based on creating a truly singled-handed bluewater cruiser-racer which does not require a crew or deck-hands to circumnavigate the globe, whilst preserving the capabilities to perform in competitive regatta settings. The yacht combines easy to handle and maintain innovative and bespoke systems with top of the range performance, and can be sailed comfortably on lengthy intercontinental routes as well as competitively in regatta’s.
The RS1900’s medium light displacement combined with long constant waterlines and a powerful tall sloop rig give strong stability and performance under sail in light and medium heavy weather conditions. The modern raised salon style and uncluttered decks provide a luxurious cruising atmosphere. The yacht in its standard configuration is outfitted with all necessary and essential equipment to cope with both artic and subtropical conditions, sail management and control systems are fully powered and semi autonomous, and manoeuvring systems are proportional and seamlessly linked as to enable true single-handed control under sail and whilst docking. Its all aluminium structure is the perfect solution for the essential safety on ocean voyages without being penalized on weight, volume or style.
