OUR STORY

AN EVOLUTION OF THE RS SAILING LEGACY

RS Sailing is internationally renowned for producing fun, durable and award-winning sailing dinghies. Drawing upon our passion for on-water activities, pioneering boat design and love for the ocean, RS Electric Boats was born.

25 YEARS EXPERTISE

PASSION AND CREATIVITY

The expert design team from RS Sailing has been designing and building award-winning boats for over 25 years. Everyone involved is passionate about getting out on the water and this enthusiasm, combined with creative design skills and extensive boat building knowledge, creates the perfect blend of transferable skills to develop high quality RS Electric Boats. 

RS LEGACY

INSPIRING FUN ON THE WATER

RS Sailing began with an idea between friends to drive dinghy sailing forward through their passion for forward-thinking boat design and innovative technology. They wanted to inspire more people to enjoy the thrill of high-performance sailing, go racing, and make new friends. Fast forward 25 years and the RS family is still thriving. And the drive to develop new boats and create fun sailing experiences for everyone to enjoy is stronger than ever.

OUR MISSION

We want to inspire people to enjoy being on the water – for work or play – in a way that doesn’t cause harm to our planet.”

Jon Partridge, CEO – RS Commercial

SUSTAINABILITY

PROTECTING OUR OCEANS

It’s hard not to notice our planet’s declining health and, in particular, our oceans. The team here at RS care deeply about protecting the world’s waterways so that we and future generations can continue to enjoy them. We’re conscious that as a marine business, we have a duty to do everything that we can to prevent further damage to the natural playgrounds that we love so much, and this has been a huge driving force behind the development of RS Electric Boats. As a result, not only have we produced a zero-emissions RIB with the world’s first integrated electric drive, but a majority of the building materials are sustainable.

BRITISH ENGINEERING

MADE IN THE UK

All RS Electric Boats are made in the UK. We have selected the best material suppliers and manufacturing partners to build the boats on British soil. By having production close by, we have greater control over quality and have the opportunity to develop and refine the boats in a considered and organic way.
