RS Vision

RS Vision is a double-handed dinghy in the all purpose line of RS Sailing, she is recognized as Learn to sail boat by ISAF. The spacious cockpit has many storage and the reversed vang clears the deck. RS Vision is available in 2 versions: T and XL. The XL version swaps the Dacron of the mainsail for Mylar with the same area, and is additionally fitted with an asymmetrical spinnaker with built-in deck snuffer.

The asymmetric spinnaker allows her nice speed downwind, hull providing sufficient volume so as not to scare. This volume also allows up to 4 adults on board. For thrill seekers, the RS Vision can receive an optional pair of trapeze. Finally, to be back even if the wind drops the RS Vision can be fitted with a small outboard engine.
