Rustler Tough Boat

Reader Jimmy Stewart nominated Rustler Yachts to our list of tough boats. Here, his Rustler 36, Adamantine, is in its last stages of production. The boat is hand-laid solid fiberglass and has a solid lead keel.

In regards to your search for tough fiberglass boats: I think you should add Rustler Yachts of Britain ( to the list. They are still being made the same way: hand laid solid fiberglass. In fact, we are having a new Rustler 36 made right now. I am surprised I couldn’t find any mention of these fine quality and affordable yachts in a search of your website and past issues.

Even The Princess Royal (Princess Anne) has owned a Rustler, a 36 like mine, for 30 years, and she is now upgrading to the 44.
