Introducing the new Ker 46 – Zannekin which has just hit the water in Hong Kong.
Part of the Ker Yacht Design stable Zannekin is a light displacement, high performance racing yacht built by McConaghy boats in their China production facility. With an all carbon structure she has plan approval to ISO Category A standards by Germanischer Lloyd. Built to McConaghy’s uncompromising standards, using vacuum consolidated carbon/epoxy foam sandwich throughout, with uni-directional fibre reinforcement and lightweight sandwich composites for non-structural components, Zannekin has been designed and built to perform and more importantly to win races under IRC, ORCi handicap system.
With a high-modulus two spreader carbon mast and carbon boom constructed without compromise from the Halls Spars New Zealand team she combines an extremely high level of design performance history in a balanced, easily driven, high-performance racing yacht with a proven regatta pedigree. So look out for Zannekin on the regatta circuit in the near future – she will be the one to try and beat!
