RS Venture

SKU: 10054

The RS Venture is the most stable and comfortable All Purpose Boat made from RS Sailing. A versatile replacement for many existing training fleets and a modern fiberglass day-sailor for families and individuals. The boat combines comfort and sail ability with a price that betters most small keelboats.

A heavy duty fiberglass construction is utilized to keep sailing weight down but still provide durability and performance. Lots of room for crew and clever options throughout. Multiple options are available including optional cockpit locker.
