RS Quest


The RS Quest sits between the RS Feva and RS Vision and responds to the need for a modern dinghy of this size – big enough for an instructor and 2 or 3 other sailors – perfect for Mom, Dad and the kids – small enough to easily handle afloat and ashore.


The RS Quest draws on 20 years of rotomoulding design and development experience through designers Jo Richards and RS Sailing. Inspired by the Sea Cadets who wish to update their older dinghies, this is the boat many sailing programmes 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.
