RS300 – high performance, singlehanded classic, one of our incredible heritage classes

RS300 – Fast, REsponsive and challenging singlehander 


RS300 Logo

One of our much loved Hertiage Classes* – the RS300 is fast, responsive and challenging. A definitive boat with almost a cult status, it has masses of innovative design features to improve handling and performance and has won accolades ever since the day it was launched back in 1998. Revolutionary in its time, the RS300s features mean that it’s still a weapon on the water decades on. Narrow waterline and fine entry provide easily driven acceleration and speed whilst the flared topsides give leverage and reserve stability. If you want a fast yet tactical boat, with a fiercely friendly Class Association to compliment it – then the RS300 is a perfect choice.

*Heritage is defined as a class that no longer has brand new boats in production with RS Sailing. However, the racing class is still active and thriving. Interested in owning an RS300? Check-out our used boat pages or contact our sales team
