Sweet… Ker 46

Ker_46_Brochure_Feb_2012-9.jpg
Plötsligt vimlar det av fräsha racers mellan 40 och 52 fot. Jason Ker har ju haft bra flyt både med Tonerre of Breskens (se nedan) och nya Ker 40 som faktiskt verkar säljas i lite volym. Att ha McConaghy som partner för att bygga båtarna hjälper säkert till.

Så här har vi nya Ker 46. Värt att notera är aktern, som numera blivit lite av en signatur, nedgång på ena sidan och så klart grindern i aktern för hårda undanvindar. Nice.

När vi ändå pratar om Ker, så har han också designat en 50-fotare för tyska Knierim.

Ker 46 Tonnerre de Breskens har ju varit otroligt framgångsrika och blev bl.a RORC Boat of the Year 2010. det jag gillade var att det här var en ren offshoreracer utan aspirationer på att köra inomskärs.

Introducing the Ker 46, a light displacement, high performance racing yacht penned by leading IRC designers Ker Yacht Design. Following the success of the Ker 40, Ker Yacht Design and McConaghy boats have again combined to offer this exciting new product.

    Coolt med ratten och flyttat fram rattarna och placerat vinsh-pedistal bakom så att man får bak alla i bussen när man ska kana utför. ;-)
