The RM1260 designed by renowned Marc Lombard is a stylish and sleek looking blue water cruiser that will appeal to sailors looking for comfort on board but also excellent sailing performance. Her hard chines only add to her sporty appearance. This is a fast boat. But don’t be deceived, the RM1260 has one of the most comfortable interiors- inviting and accommodating. The large cockpit and spacious layout below are modern and bright and great for entertaining. Hitchcock has been well maintained to the highest standards.
The layout offers up to seven berths in three cabins plus saloon. There is full standing headroom and good ventilation throughout. The forward cabin has a centre line double berth with custom mattress and wooden slated base for good ventilation and hanging lockers and shelves on either side.

To port, the U-shaped galley has double stainless steel sinks with pressurised hot and cold water and manual seawater tap, fridge with two compartments, two-burner Eno cooker/oven and plenty of storage lockers.
