A beautiful classic, long-keel trailerable dayboat

Inspired by some of the Classic designs from the last century, the Rustler 24 offers the dayboat sector a new dimension by combining traditional long keel sea-keeping and handling qualities, with the practicality of modern materials and systems.

In matters of sea keeping, stability, sure-footedness and overall balance, the longer keel has an inherent advantage. It offers a smoother ride. The Rustler 24 is capable of a great deal more than just looking pretty.

A perfect combination of elegance, performance and practicality. But beauty here is more than skin deep, with attention to detail and a quality of finish rarely seen on boats of this type. The result is that the Rustler 24 strikes a unique balance between sailing performance, ease of handling, high quality materials and world class workmanship.

The Rustler 24 – simple elegance makes for a daysailer that turns heads”

By taking great care with the design and layout of the yacht, the Rustler 24 has successfully achieved the impression of grandeur unusual in a yacht of her size. And using Rustler’s simplified sail handling system, the full performance of this exceptional dayboat can be achieved with the minimum of crew – single-handedly if the mood takes you!

The very high ballast ratio makes for a stiff and stable boat, combine this with a deep roomy cockpit and you get a sense of security second to none.
