Ker 50 C/R

Prefered boat on the Sydney Hobart: Look at min 1.05 - Video Gallery

Amazing performance for a boat with this program:

Jason Ker: "A 50' yacht designed to very specific requirements with a very complete bespoke interior, the brief was for a yacht that would undertake a combination of Cruising the Queensland coast in between bouts of competitive racing, and lift its keel above a sandbar in front of its home port. The design incorporates an innovative lifting keel system that preserves interior space while being much lighter typical systems. "

The boat has a lifting Keel (2.2 to 3 m) it is not a Carbon boat (eglass), it is made in China by McConaghy and probably will have an attractive price.

The beautiful boat, "Kerumba", finished 19 in real time and the three boats immediately behind (real time) were an Open 50, a TP 52 and a VOR60

"The crew changed With the majority of the crew stepping up from a Beneteau 44.7, the performance jump is being met with exhilaration in what has been described as a ‘Beneteau on steroids’."

As I have said, it is a beautiful performance cruiser....and an incredible fast one too:
