RM Yachts launches the new RM1380

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.
