The Perfect Boat
The search for that elusive “Perfect Boat” has challenged many a mariner. And certainly, that ideal vessel may look different as your needs change. The Rosborough RF-246 checks a lot of boxes.
Capable and Proven Hull
The design proved to be a winner- soft riding in a head sea, stable in a beam sea and predictable in a following sea. Chosen as the work-horse for the Canadian Government Dept of Fisheries. In a world where “bling” sells boats Rosborough offers an alternative delivering a vessel that puts substance ahead of shiny add-ons.
Performance with Economy
The RF-246 strikes a balance between speed and economy when powered by a single Honda 150 or 200hp 4-stroke engine. Enjoy cruising speeds to the upper teens to the low 20’s with the ability to achieve much faster when needed. A range of well over 500 miles is obtainable at displacement speeds.
Built with extended stays in mind, many consider the Rossi’s proportions to be ideal. The cavernous v-berth will make you forget your in a 25’ boat. The cabin, offered in three floor plans, is organized and efficient. Port and stbd side Pilot doors are well suited to offer ease of handling lines around the dock while doubling as natural vents perfect for controlling the flow of air thru the cabin when used in conjunction with the opening front window and optional overhead hatches. The captain and crew will enjoy the 360 deg view on the helm-deck afforded by windows all around. The standard engine bracket frees up the cockpit for functional living space. Combine that with an optional cockpit roof extension and enclosure and you’ll swear you’re in a much larger vessel.
Owners report the trailerable advantage is an important consideration when deciding on a new RF-246. Not so much to launch and retrieve for every outing but for planning trips to distant ports. Winter months exploring Florida and the Bahamas? Always wanted to experience the Coast of Maine? Is the Great Loop on your bucket list? Options become available when miles over the road put you in your boating paradise. And when the cold wind blows; your Rossi stored in a barn or covered in the yard eliminates expensive marina storage bills.
