The second iteration from the Ker Yachts Design team, which offers vast levels of optimisation on from the original 40ft design.
With three boats already sold and the first hull sailing in the UK and already winning silver wear, its clear to see that this boat is going to be the new 40ft benchmark.





World Renowned builders McConaghy Boats are again spearheading the construction of the latest Ker designed 40 footer.
