2014 September 1

A new crop of exciting sailboats—from performance-oriented dinghies to drop-dead gorgeous flagships—is coming to a boat show near you

RM 890

The RM 890 is a performance cruiser designed for brisk, safe sailing in a variety of conditions. Its unique feature is the bilge keels that gives the boat a shallow draft and the ability to beach at high tide while maintaining stability under sail. In a nod to family sailing, the cabin has a windshield for a forward view, and a chine that increases interior volume. LOA 29’2”; Beam 10’6”; Draft 5’ (shoal), 6’2” (deep); Displ. 7,100 lbs.; Price $110,000; www.rm-yachts.com
