The RM 1060 is a great cruising boat and a fast one. When the boat was announced there were some that were hoping for a boat as fast as a Pogo 10.50 or a boat for winning a Transquadra...They were wrong, this is a fast boat but more heavy and slow than a Pogo 10.50, a more versatile cruiser with a big voyage potential.

Maybe that difference in the keels weight has to do with the twin keel version and the mono keel version?
