RS Sailing

The new benchmark in large cruising and training dinghies - the RS Venture is capable of safely carrying up to eight sailors in its spacious, self-draining cockpit. Sparkling performance makes it fun and multiple specification options allow the boat to be tailored for you.

RS Venture model range:
RS Venture S - GRP centreboard
RS Venture SE - Steel ballasted centreboard 60kg
RS Venture Connect - Lifting keel with lead bulb 125kg
RS Venture Connect SCS - Adds seated controls for adaptive sailing

The RS Venture is a remarkably stable and dependable boat - perfect for family sailing or in a sailing school environment. Choose between S, SE and Connect models (see RS Venture Connect pages for full information about the keelboat version) to suit your sailing plans.

A host of equipment options allow you to further customise the RS Venture - from swimming ladders for summer beach fun to gennaker or spinnaker packs for training versatility, the RS Venture can be safe, practical and exciting.

Rapidly gaining popularity across the world, the RS Venture has won major design awards and become the big dinghy of choice for many experienced centres and sailors.

"...it is simply a great family dinghy for mum, dad, the kids, dogs and friends to go exploring together. For those who have a holiday cottage on the water then the Venture is the perfect accessory" Andi Robertson Yachting Life

The RS Venture Connect uses the same hull as the centreboard models and incorporates a vertical lifting keel for self-righting capability and a self-draining cockpit with large aft stowage locker. The keel lifts simply so the boat can be easily transported ashore, slipway launched and kept afloat on a mooring.

The huge cockpit means the RS Venture can seat up to eight people and wide side decks with secure inner seats give a range of options to suit uncertain beginners, families and experienced sailors.

A full range of para sailing equipment options mean the boat can be configured to suit virtually all disabilities. Options include single or twin seats, manual joystick, electronic joystick and sip/puff steering.
