Abstract: The eclipsing triple system RV Crt shows a composite spectrum dominated by the sharp-lined late-F type spectrum of the tertiary. The spectral lines of the close binary are considerably broadened, since both components rotate synchronously with the orbit. The Doppler shifts and the component spectra are successfully recovered by application of the spectral disentangling technique. The cooler, less massive component of the close binary is larger than the hotter one. The hotter component of the close binary is very similar to the tertiary. The system is probably still on its way to the zero-age main sequence
