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.

K1 No. 42 For Sale

Number 42 (2011 from Vander Craft). I have owned it from new. I had it converted to a dangly pole rig by Vander Craft in 2014. The hull, spars and foils are all in absolutely outstanding condition. Road trailer (also have under cover for trailing), launching trolley, back board, etc are all in good order. It has both Hyde and a newer set of North sails. It has only been lightly used for some years now, not really at all since COVID, and so halyards, cover, etc, are a bit green and I would recommend replacing the elasticated parts of the rigging.


It is lying in North Wales (not far from Pwllheli


 Asking price £3,000.
