About RM Yachts

Company history

The French shipyard RM Yachts was founded in 1989 by Jean-Claude Audrey. The first RM900 model of this young shipyard was made of epoxy-soaked plywood and reinforced with a metal structure inside. In 1995 the shipyard turned to Marc Lombard, well known for his racing yachts. He designed a smaller RM800, which retained the features of his older brother, namely reliability, speed and stability. In the late 90's, Lombard offered RM Yachts a very original design for the 35' RM1050, which was a huge success with more than 100 units sold in the next 10 years. In 2002 the company became part of Groupe Fora.

Over the next 6 years, production at the shipyard has increased by almost 6 times. New models RM1200, RM880 and then RM1350 were introduced. The 2008-2009 crisis forced the yard to look at the business from a different angle, with RM Yachts paying more attention to the boats' exterior and their dynamic properties.

RM Yachts has never slowed down.

The new RM1060, launched in 2010, was a resounding success for the post-crisis year. In 2013 the RM1260 won the «European Yacht of the Year award and»in 2 years 30 hulls of this cruiser were sold. Four years later the RM970 won the same award. By 2015, the company had a turnover of €6.5 million. In 2017, RM Yachts moved into new premises, setting a new impetus for production.
