The French shipyard RM-Yachts has unveiled the first images of the future RM 1080, a 36-foot (10.80-metre) convertible cockpit yacht. With modern lines, designed once again by Marc Lombard, the inverted stem, a pronounced knee, which reaches from the stern to the bow, and a large dolphin striker, RM1080 has an innovative cockpit, adaptable according to the needs of the moment ( navigation or relaxation), for a comfortable and safe cruise.
The hull material is a mix of plywood and epoxy resin, the use of which, unparalleled in the history of modern yachting, enables to design original, high-performance yachts, limiting the need for molded 100% glass-polyester composite hulls.
The RM 1080 features a cockpit that can be transformed into a sun deck, helm and maneuvering station, all under the protection of a large spray hood and secure cockpit sides. The ergonomics of the helm stations are not to be outdone, with two eccentric steering wheels and integrated seats.
A true bluewater sailboat, the RM 1080 features a real chart table, a draining foul weather gear locker, a U-shaped galley and a vast saloon. The usual technical room will also facilitate maintenance and access to systems. The spacious cabins also benefit from the full width of this powerful hull.
