RS Yachts is a new brand of yachts created by an investor who has in the past been deeply involved with Oceanco and Jongert and who has now realised his personal vision of the perfect contemporary sailing yacht. The first two yachts, both 19m RS 1900s, are currently under construction, one of which will be presented at the Cannes Boat Show in September. Larger versions – a 22m and 25m are currently being developed.
The newe range will be available through brokers Arne Schmidt that has successfully been working in global yachting with AS-Yachts for more than 35 years. Its core competence is the agency for high quality yachts, new and used, sail and motor.
According to RS Yachts, in the increasingly popular 60ft-65ft yacht segment, owners are increasingly looking for easily handled yachts without compromising on performance, interior volume and comfort on board. The new RS 1900 is described as being suitable for double-handed or even single-handed operation not only under sail but also while docking. RS Yachts claims impressive performance is generated by a long, effective waterline and a powerful but easily harnessed rig.
"Strength and safety through high impact resistance of the hull are guaranteed by advanced aluminium construction that also keeps weight in the required dimension," reads a company statement.
The yachts are being built at Bloemsma, with the second boat on order for the yard’s owner, Jan Hart, for his personal use.
The RS 1900 can soon be inspected and test sailed both in the Mediterranean and in the Netherlands.
