A modern family or training dinghy with features that move the game forward. Big enough for an instructor and 2 or 3 pupils – perfect for Mom, Dad and the kids, yet small enough to handle easily ashore and afloat. Inspired by the UK Sea Cadets to replace their aging fleet, the RS Quest has rapidly become the best-selling dinghy of its type worldwide. Durable rotomolded polyethylene construction – space and stability – reefing, spinnaker, stowage and a host of other options. It’s not easy to make it all work but our development team have nailed it on this boat.

Compact, simple, strong and stable

Versatile configuration for all programs and sailors of any age

Large, self-draining cockpit for up to four people .

The RS Quest sits between the RS Feva and RS Venture in our range and responds to the need for a modern dinghy of this size.

Perfect for family daysailor  – small enough to easily handle afloat and ashore. The RS Quest is the modern solution for sailors who wish to update their older, antiquated dinghies.

This is the boat many sailing programs around the world want – and it is packed with innovative features to create a uniquely configurable boat to suit individual needs, with the ability to grow the sailor.
