Launched in 2016, under good auspices, the RM970 is by definition a family cruiser, but with unequalled specifications combining speed and comfort, synonym of enjoyable cruises.

On a tough market segment, she is easily remarked by her elegant lines as well as her astonishing performances. Both the results

of another brilliant design signed by award- winning architect Marc Lombard, reputed very crafty on yachts of this size.

Port-hopping, extended week-end, coastal cruising…she’s awaiting you!

The prizewinner

Hugely inspired by offshore racers, she inherits from their sporty lines, but also their dynamic benefits:

  • Loads of volume in the forefoot and a raised bow, to maximize her planning ability 
  • A broad stern and hard chines, for an optimized stability and stiffness, synonym of power and speed under sail. –
  • A reverse sheer and continuous coamings, which contribute to her fluid shape and unique style.

With little surprise, the RM970 has been awarded « Yacht of the Year / Design Price » in 2016, by French must-read Voile Magazine, and “European Yacht of the Year” by a jury of 20 international journalists, in 2017. French skipper François Gabart acquired one in replacement of his RM890. What else ?

An instantaneous feeling of space

The RM970 offers an « open » space. Her luminous saloon is incredibly roomy.

Her « L » shape kitchen, very functional at use, combined with the charts table, forms a securing area where to hold yourself when coming below deck.

Her forecabin extends the perspective of the saloon, and can be closed at night time, to offer the equivalent intimity of the aft cabin.

Technical specifications

The RM970 is a yacht available in twin-keel (ideal for safe grounding), and single keel versions. Single or twin rudder version are also offered. All our RM970 are mostly made of plywood-epoxy. These materials as well as this buidling process both ensure an optimum ridigity and stiffness, synonym of performance under sail. It’s also the guarantee of a very good insulation – thermal and phonic – you will enjoy, should it be during a blue water cruising or when doing port-hopping.
