Boatyard at Beer RS600

The Boatyard at Beer is delighted to announce that we are now able to manufacture the new RS600, oven baked to 50 degrees and with a new style box with trailing edge protector, new boom, updated sails, Seadek progrip, and with Selden mast, rigging and wings.

The RS600 is a high performance trapeze single-hander designed by Clive Everest and Nick Peters  – ultra-light, fast, challenging and addictive.  It has won the enthusiasm of hundreds of single handed dinghy sailors.  It is faster than most two person boats and is still one of the lightest, most responsive production sailboats around.  Strong enough to take the punishment, sailing an RS600 is pure adrenaline.  Carefully designed to be both beautiful and extreme. Light and fast, the rig control and reefing system make the excitement available to a wide range of sailors


“Like skiing, difficult to learn but once achieved surprisingly easy and rewarding.  There is almost no spray to hit you in the face to spoil your enjoyment in strong winds.  The hull is very strong and yet light enough to make getting in and out the water easy, it’s a boat that responds well to putting a bit more effort in, the trapeze makes this easier than in a hiking boat and saves your knees”.
