For Sale: The hugely successful "Keronimo". Launched in late 2010, she really was the boat that started the fast, planing 40 ft revolution and has an enviable trophy cabinet.
This design really excel's under IRC, but of recent years the boat has proved just as competitive under ORC and things look to only be getting better as the rating rule develops.
With "Keronimo" under your wing, you know you have the chance to win any regatta you enter, thanks to this fantastically optimised Ker 40 design. New sails, some electronics and new bow sprit 2019.
