You know that feeling, when you walk into a store in late winter/early spring, looking for a sweater or rain jacket and all they have are swimsuits and flip flops? Then, in July, you go to buy swimsuits and all they have are sweaters? Well, buying a sailboat can be a similar experience. It may seem as though outdoor barbecues and days on the water are months away, but summer will be here before you know it. If you do not plan ahead and start looking and ordering your boat soon, you may not get your boat in time.
Demand for recreational products is at an all-time high and our distributors have boats being purchased before they even arrive in North America from the UK. As we approach summer and sailing season it is important to plan ahead and get your boat ordered now so you can enjoy your boat all summer long. There is no worse feeling than ordering a boat in late June hoping to have it by the Fourth of July and finding out it will not arrive until late August.
With many summer camps and youth sailing programs cancelled this past year, families discovered the joy of creating experiences at home and sailing with their families. With uncertainty around sailing camps this summer, RS boats continue to offer a safe option to go sailing with your family if your kids are unable to attend their normal sailing school or camp. They also provide a new and fun way for your family to connect over the summer. And, with a wide range of boat styles, you are guaranteed to find a boat that fits all your wants and needs.
Known for their durability, RS boats will offer your family years and years of sailing fun. As a result, it is extremely rare to find RS boats on the used market; this holds especially true for our family boats such as RS Quests, RS Zests, RS Venture and RS CAT14/RS CAT16. A new RS boat is a great value and can be brought straight to the water with no surprises. There is also a large network of dealers so your local dealer can bring it to the water for you and is available to answer any questions you may have! If cost is a concern for your family, third party lending finance partners make purchasing easier.
Last summer, hundreds of families discovered the joy of sailing an RS boat. Let this be the summer your family discovers that joy and don’t let this opportunity pass you by. For more information, locate your local dealer here!
