With the Caribbean season in full swing, you’re probably busy reviewing your inventory of water toys right now. In recent years, ‘toy boxes’ on luxury yachts are becoming increasingly varied and exotic, and whether your preference is the need for speed of a jet ski or an electric bike to get you around the islands in style, there’s something for everyone on the market right now. Superyacht Tenders & Toys gives us the lowdown on the newest water toys you should set your sights on.
The RS Aero is the product of three years of development, testing four different hull variations and numerous rigs, foils and layouts, resulting in a boat that is confidently the most technically advanced. Astonishingly, the RS Aero hull weighs less than an Optimist at just 30kg. There are three rig options, the RS Aero 5, 7 and 9, which will typically suit youths, women/light men and men respectively, and the result is a boat that completely re-sets the standard for pure exhilaration in a simple single-hander.
It’s ultra-light weight, meaning the hull form and rigs need not be extreme, so the RS Aero is remarkably easy to handle and exceptionally user-friendly on shore. Virtually anyone can lift the boat onto a car roof-rack – pulling it up the beach makes you smile – and simplicity means the boat can be rigged in moments. Look out for the new Foiling Kit which enables it to be changed from non-foiling to foiling mode in less than 15 minutes.
