Sweet… Ker 39

Jason Ker är mest känd för “Aera” en 55-fotare som varit mycket framgångsrik inom IRC med vinster i Sydney-Hobart, Key West och Cowes Week. I Göteborg finns ju också Sven Lehtvalls Ker 11.3, “On a High”. Nu har man tagit fram en cruiser/racer, Ker 39, som ser slick ut (i alla fall om man bor i ett land där det körs IRC).

Nej, jag skall inte köpa nån av båtarna som presenteras under rubliken “Sweet…” Men i takt med att det blir mörkare ute så ökar behovet av båtporr :-).

    “The 39′ project is alive and well, we started the build of full production tooling at the end of November last year after committing to Murtic Yachts in Croatia to build the boats (we had been in talks with CMI Thailand but couldn’t reach agreement). All the tooling is CNC for accuracy and after a major delay from our first mould supplier, we switched to one in Holland. The first boat is now close to completion and we expect to see it sailing in early August, closely followed by a second boat which isn’t far behind.

    Five 39’s are in build at the present time, a huge amount of design refinement has gone into them, both for performance and production efficiency and we look forward to sailing the first boats in August.

    Our sales manager was enticed away to project manage the Movistar V070 team and we decided to wait until now to find a replacement and put our efforts towards delivering the product rather than further sales! – we are now putting the feelers out for the right replacement, but also starting to develop an agent network around the world.

    We have put a lot of effort into making the 39 easy to get the best performance out of and the new keel we put on our 37′ Jump Juice (similar to the new 39′ keel) seems to be having the right effect for an amateur campaign.”
