RS Sailing launches the brand new RS Toura! A modern dinghy with enviable space and a durable rotomolded polyethylene hull, families and training centres can revel in the freedom of being out on the water with ease. Nestled in the RS range between the RS Quest and RS Venture, the RS Toura has room for up to seven crew. Balanced stability compliments the RS Toura's impressive internal space, allowing sailors to tour coastal waters with confidence.

With a reefable mainsail, furling jib, asymmetric spinnaker, ample stowage, optional outboard, and a wardrobe of accessories to choose from, RS allows you to make the RS Toura unique to you. Whether it's for training or cruising, the RS Toura gives you the freedom to enjoy endless adventures in your own way.

Jon Partridge, CEO RS Sailing Commerical, commented, "The concept of the RS Toura was born out of a desire to support our distribution network and customers around the world. With the RS Zest and RS Quest proving themselves to be market-leading products, we were asked to produce the big sister to the RS Quest with all the same award-winning features that our customers love.

"We believe that the RS Toura compliments the rest of the RS range and further supports RS Sailing in our pursuit to get more people out on the water and growing our sport."

The RS Sailing Team and Jo Richards designed and developed the RS Toura over the last 16 months. The result is a boat that boasts responsive handling, ergonomic controls and rewarding performance. The PE3 hull removes the hassle of traditional maintenance and gives the RS Toura the durability credentials that RS owners know and love.

The RS Toura hull and spars are manufactured in the United Kingdom using cutting-edge engineering and machinery alongside computer-controlled build programs, which give the highest consistency and finish quality.

Alex Newton-Southon, CEO - RS Sailing Design & Technologies, commented, "We designed the RS Toura to have great internal space and reassuring stability, which gives it excellent people carrying ability. The RS Toura has a modern feel to complement the RS Zest and RS Quest whilst also ensuring ease of use, excellent handling and easy maintenance.

"We don't like to compromise at RS; therefore, the RS Toura's internal space and stability haven't been at the detriment of performance. The RS Toura is balanced, nimble and incredibly rewarding to sail."

Contact the team at RS Sailing for more information and pricing. Boats are currently in production and will be available from Spring 2022. The RS Toura will be showcased at the RYA Dinghy & Watersport Show on 26/27 February 2022 on the RS Sailing stand E30.
