The new RM970 with her light displacement and sporty rig is certainly a lot of fun. But she is far more than just a sports-boat, offering well-proportioned, comfortable accommodation. Not only that, but with a skylight that runs almost the full width of the cabin top, this really is an exceptionally bright yacht.
The RM970 is a spacious 32ft fast cruising yacht whose performance will amaze you; it completes the range between the awesome RM890 and RM1070. She won the 2016 Design Prize "Voile Magazine".
