The RFOA was formed in 1999 as a result of the interest of owners of Red Fox Yachts who had previously met and communicated on a more casual basis. Membership is drawn from owners of all versions of the Red Fox 200 series and Red Fox Visions. Members are widely located around the UK with a few more overseas in Holland and Germany.

The Association serves to promote and support the various interests of these owners. This is mainly achieved by publication of a bi-annual magazine, issue of news bulletins, organisation of an annual rally and annual general meeting as well as a website. Some members meet on other occasions for either sailing or social get- togethers.
