This is the first announcement following the acquisition of the La Rochelle yard by the Grand Large Yachting group, but the RM1380 remains an RM Yachts: designed by award-winning architect Marc Lombard, with a wide hull and deck plan inspired by racing, and a cutter rig. It is the largest plywood and epoxy cruiser ever built.
The new RM1380 is a true blue water cruiser, which will benefit from the yard’s know-how and its proven construction technique: a hull in epoxy plywood – a material that is in total compliance with current sustainability and life cycle concerns – and a polyester deck.
Martin Lepoutre, General Manager, commented, “We really started from a blank page to rewrite what an RM-designed family cruiser should be: a new hull, a new deck plan, and always this seductive style that makes our yachts unique with a timeless appeal.”
Marc Lombard, naval architect: “The RM1380 is the quintessence of the RM Yachts range and will provide ‘sailors’ with the yacht they deserve”.
Available with 2, 3 or 4 cabins, twin helm and double or lifting keel, she comes with a dedicated list of equipment geared towards long-distance cruising, including a folding transom. Price from 330,000 euros.
