The RS Quest, launched at Southampton Boat Show in September 2015. Unrivalled in this size, the 14’1" dinghy developed in conjunction with Sea Cadets offers maximum security and safety, great for training and family sailing.
The RS Quest sits between the RS Feva and RS Vision in our range and responds to the need for a modern dinghy of this size – big enough for an instructor and 2 or 3 pupils – perfect for Mum or Dad and youngsters – small enough to easily handle afloat and ashore. Inspired by the Sea Cadets who wish to update their older dinghies, this is the boat many sailing programmes around the world want – and it is packed with innovative features to create a uniquely configurable boat to suit individual needs, with the ability to grow the sailor.
The RS Quest draws on 20 years of rotomoulding design and development experience through designers Jo Richards and RS Sailing.
