The Ker 40 is an exciting new yacht that has 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


The new Ker 40 is a fast off shore yacht, with large open cockpit that makes sail handling and crew work a breeze. The boat is fitted out with a lightweight interior that complies with handicap regulations. It is comfortable and practical with a dedicated nav-station, galley, and ample accommodation.


The rig is moderate, with a high aspect sail plan, which will ensure that this boat will perform above its size across all wind ranges. The spar package is supplied by none other than world-renowned mast makers Hall Spars. A highly refined, carbon fibre double spreader rig and carbon boom, this boat will cater for a wide range of sailing skill and level of racing.


The boat is easy to sail with less crew numbers, e.g. for shorthanded sailing like twilight, or it can be driven hard and sailed at the highest level.
