The brand new RS21 keelboat responds to the need for a progressive, simple and affordable solution for keelboat clubs that increasingly see the opportunity for fleet ownership, league competition and training.

The design puts close racing over ultimate performance - convenient ownership over complexity - it maximises low maintenance and value. This is the boat to bring wider availability, enjoyment and popularity back to keelboat racing.

The RS21 is both high quality and a sound financial proposition. Realistic costs allow appealing club charter fees – or affordable investment by syndicates of sailing friends. Team up and do it together.

RS Sailing’s sustainability focus means the RS21 also leads the way in terms of eco-friendly construction, with the hull built at Cowes on the Isle of Wight using bio-derived resins and recycled core materials. The deck design and lifting or removable keel system facilitate stacking for freight and travel efficiency. An optional rechargeable and retractable electric propulsion system is also integrated into the design. This boat is all about the future of sailing, in all its aspects.

RS Sailing is now the world’s leading small sailboat brand and has created some of the most successful classes of this era, from the inspirational RS Feva for young sailors to the technologically ground-breaking, ultra-light RS Aero. The RS21 represents a safe purchase and seems assured of success.
