K1 The Single-Hander Keelboat



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 60kg yet its all-up weight is little more than a conventional single-handed dinghy. The hull is constructed using the latest resin infusion techniques to minimize weight. 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.
