Fora Marine
RM 800

The RM 800 is the second RM in Fora Marine catalog after the RM 900. For this small adventurer the shipyard calls Marc Lombard previously known only for racing sailboat. The result differs of other productions of this time: wide, made of plywood / epoxy, simply decorated she was facing polyester boats more and more equipped.

The powerful hull is propelled by a rigging typical of the multihulls with high roach mainsail. To avoid the backstay, the rigging is Bergström type with inverted low struts. The race key is present: fresh water can be ballasted to further increase the power.

Inside the accommodations are simple and provide a large volume of storage including a large storage compartment accessible from inside. The headroom is limited when you leave the coachroof but it allows a panoramic view from the inside.
