A French sailboat manufacturer since 1989, our La Rochelle shipyard specialises in the construction of 30-45ft (approximately 9-14 metre) fast cruising yachts built of plywood and epoxy.

Whether you are looking for a coastal cruising sailboat, or planning longer open sea trips, such as an Atlantic or Pacific crossing, or even round-the-world sailing, there will always be an RM yacht to match your project.
We are the only shipyard and manufacturer to have built more than 500 monohull sailboats using this material and technique. Needless to say, we know plywood-epoxy inside-out.
The material’s benefits are numerous: lightness and stiffness for increased performance under sail, and a dry and sane interior atmosphere, thanks to its thermal and acoustic properties. Environmental impact is also reduced compared to materials usually found in yacht construction, including fibreglass, polyester resins and so on.
Different keel and rudder options (fin keel, twin keel and lifting-keel, plus single or twin rudder) are offered. RM Yachts are customisable, including hull colour and interior design.

Thanks to our many years of experience as a sailing yacht manufacturer, we have designed our website to provide you with all the information you need to select your next cruising yacht: What is important when choosing a cruising sailboat? What is the best size for a coastal or bluewater cruising yacht? How to choose the best sailboat to live on? What options are to be considered when preparing an ocean crossing or a circumnavigation?

Our FAQ section is also a great source of information to help you find the ideal sailing boat according to your needs and sailing plans.
You are more than welcome to visit our premises, and we can also set up a sea trial.
Our team is also able to help you configure your brand new sailing yacht.
