RS 400

SKU: 10039

$18,999.00
An absolute weapon from RS. Devastatingly fast upwind and down without the need for a trap. A big boat that rewards quickness and physicality. Nothing matches the RS400's balanced and responsive handling, its good manners in big breeze and the excitement of asymmetric sailing anywhere in the world. Powered up and proud, when nothing else will do, this boat absolutely hauls the mail.

    Hull
  • Big and powerful with an excellent blend of speed, maneuverability and ease.
  • Light and stiff foam sandwich construction -> maximum transfer of power from the rig.

  • The light weight Proctor mast uses a section especially developed for the RS400. Bend is controllable using a deck level screw and adjustable spreaders.
  • Rake and sideways bend are further instantly variable via the jib halyard led back to the crew.
