RS Zest - From: $4,470

The RS Zest is ideal for SoCal families, camps and junior programs. It’s easy to rig, beach-able, and perfectly balanced. The large mainsail performs well in light air and reefs on the mast for transition to breezy conditions.

A durable, full length flared gunwale provides a lifetime of freedom from maintenance headaches. It also makes a great handhold to move the boat.

Released in 2018, the RS Zest incorporates 25 years of design and manufacturing expertise.
