Beautiful Yachts, Beautifully Built
Relatively low volume production with a very high degree of customer led optimization, along with an exceptional standard of finish distinguishes the Rustler brand from others.
The Rustler range has grown over the years. This growth has been entirely driven by customer demand – and has led us to an interesting range of boats, from pretty dayboats to powerful world class cruising yachts.
No matter which model is chosen, the core values remain the same: good design, matched to exemplary build quality.

- Rustler 42 review by owner David Sketchley David Sketchley’s Rustler 42, Westward, was launched in 2021. Named after the famous 1910 Herreshoff racing schooner, she was the first Rustler 42 to sport a carbon fibre mast but it’s not just her rig that was new. She also has a unique interior layout and cutting-edge battery charging and power management systems. We caught up with David after his first season with her to find out more about him, and about this extensively customised boat.
- 3 useful formulas to help you choose a boatWhen you know your draught (or draft) from your displacement and that the length overall is not the overall length of the yacht including pulpits and bowsprits, you can start using these figures to help you make an informed decision.
- How to choose a boat – yacht measurements explainedThere’s a standard set of specifications that appear in boatbuilders’ sales brochures and on yachtbrokers’ websites: LOA, LWL, displacement, sail area, ballast ratio, D/L, SA/D and so on. Most buyers rely on these to some extent, to read between the lines of the marketing literature, but the figures quoted aren’t actually as clear cut as most people think, and some of them are often misconstrued.
- What are the benefits of a carbon fibre mast on a cruising boat?Carbon fibre has long been the material of choice for racing yacht masts. It used to be an exotic material, but it can now be found in many things from pens to pushbikes. Carbon fibre is stiffer and weighs less than other mast materials, but it’s also quite a lot more expensive. So why have we recently had three owners request a carbon fibre mast for their Rustler 42?
