Description

The RS Vision – great performance, flat out fun for all sailors.
Forgiving handling with exciting performance
Light, durable and beautifully built

Perfect all-round family sailboat for easy handling and enjoyable big dinghy sailing – space for cruising with the family, easy to club race or finding adventures all over North America.
The RS Vision is one of the most popular family boats in the range. A boat that is tough and virtually maintenance free. A boat that is roomy, stable and great to sail.

“After 2 seasons of hard racing and regular cruising the Vison has lived up to the ‘maintenance free’ claim with only cordage to replace. The sailing performance has been excellent and she has proved to be easy to rig, easy to reef and remarkably comfortable to sail. All this with the bonus of excellent back up from the RS team.”
Dave and Matt Hogben – Vision “Twenty/Twenty”
