New Dinghy Sailboats from Sail Montana

Now is the time to place your order for new sailboats for the up coming season!  
Whether you are looking for a new J88 (the family racer cruiser and Boat of the Year), an RS Vision for your lake house or an Aero for one-design competition, now is the time to place your order for summer fun.

With three rig options, anyone from a junior sailor to an experienced adult can enjoy the benefits of this hi-tech design. This boat has already seen the highest level of demand for any single-hander we’ve launched, and is rapidly gaining popularity worldwide. 


RS FEVA $6,650

One of the most popular multi-use boats, the RS Feva is a great option for double handed youth sailing. As a transition from single handed boats, the RS Feva is a better size for younger or smaller sailors than traditional fiberglass options, and offers a high performance sail plan with asymmetric spinnaker. With increased presence in North America the RS Feva is one of the fastest growing fleets in the world. Not just for kids, the RS Feva transitions easily to a recreational single-hander for adults.

  • The Northern Rockies lakes offer unique boating opportunities, but also require specialized transportation, commissioning, moorage, off season haul out and winterization.  

  • We are the only yacht broker specializing in larger boats (sail or power) in the inland northwest.  We specialize in locating new and used yachts from throughout the country, regardless of manufacturer, handling the purchase transaction, arranging transport and commissioning.

  • If you are considering investing in a power or sailing yacht for an inland northwest lake, call us first.  We have the experience and contacts to make the experience rewarding rather than frustrating.  

We order new boats within these guidelines:

Centerboard sailboats: Sail Montana requires a 50% deposit on all centerboard boats (ie: RS, Laser Performance, Weta) ordered from the factory; balance is due when the boat arrives at our shop. We can generally arrange for storage of a new boat  for a nominal charge until a customer can take delivery. 

Keel sailboats and power yachts: hull deposits and progress payments per new boat sales contract. Contact Sail Montana for further details on ordering larger yachts.

By far the most cost-effective way to take delivery of a new boat is to place an order well ahead of when you would like to sail it and we can arrange for the most efficient method of transportation. Please contact Sail Montana for answers to boat-shipping questions.
