Born from the classic yacht designs of the last 100 years comes the glamorous Rustler 24. A new contender into the day boat sector combining the traditional sea keeping and handling qualities of a long keel yacht with the practicality that is found in modern material and systems. Here is a real alternative to the ‘crash bang’ style of modern day boats – for those amongst us with a passion for elegance!
Great care has been taken in the design and layout. Even at 24ft. she oozes grandeur and elegance which is hard to achieve on a yacht of this size. The design idea came from Rustler Yachts interpretation of a 1960s David Boyd hull design and Rustler Yachts designed the deck plan and rig setup. She uses Rustler’s unique simplified sail handling system allowing her to be easily sailed single handed should you wish. Even on your own you can still achieve the full performance of this special day boat, all while feeling safe and secure in the deep roomy cockpit. She also has a very high ballast ratio aiding her feeling of a stiff and stable yacht that you will want to take out day after day.
Even though she is the smallest in the fleet she echoes the attention to detail and quality of finish seen on her bigger sisters. This level of detail and workmanship is something rarely seen on this size of yacht. Her hull is glass fibre and you can choose the colour of your hull to suit your style. The deck is laid in beautiful teak aiding her streamline looks. Her long keel is encapsulated meaning there are no bolts or weak points to worry about. All aspects have been carefully thought through and owners report a perfect combination between elegance, performance and practicality.
The Rustler 24 is capable of a great deal more than just looking pretty and she will certainly turn heads wherever you sail…
