New Boats


The K1 single-handed performance keelboat heralds a new era of single-handed sailing; combining speed, style and ease of sailing.

This unique mini yacht has a lifting keel with bulb weighing 62kg yet its all-up weight is little more than a conventional single-handed dinghy. The carbon spars are ultra light and responsive.

The slender hull has little resistance when heeled so is quick and tacks through a very narrow angle. The self-tacking jib is set on a pole for maximum ease of control. The cockpit is deep and comfortable when sitting on the deck edge.

The result is a boat that is an absolute joy to sail and guaranteed to provide effortless, fast sailing and close tactical racing.
