Fora Marine
RM 1200

The RM 1200 is the first sailboat designed after Sysba Marine was taken over by Fora Marine. She was the longer boat of the RM range when launched, but the philosophy remains the same than for the smaller models: hard chine plywood / epoxy hull, composite deck with a panoramic roof, 2 bulb keels and cutter rigging.

The boat size allows large accommodations, even if the layout is identical to the other models of the shipyard. It includes in particular large cargo space in the aft part. With only 2 cabins and significant capacity of storage the RM does not aims leasing but real cruises.
