The Ker 40 is an exciting yacht that was been specifically designed for higher performance around the racetrack but more importantly to win races on IRC and ORCi handicap systems.
Designed by talented British designer Jason Ker, his designs over the past ten years have stormed onto the international sailing scene in no uncertain terms
Built by renowned builders McConaghy Boats, the Ker 40 clearly had the pedigree and now has the results to prove that this collaboration has achieved everything it set out to.
A simple interior layout makes this boat completely fit for purpose and a fully optimised structural design using advanced Finite Element Analysis Techniques, had meant the boat is tough and durable for ocean racing, whilst being light enough to fend off the competition on the inshore platform as well.
