Félix FRA 35439 Ker 39 Hull color: white, covered by grey sticker Disp; 6482kg IRC TCC; 1.120, 2015
The production Ker 39 Cruiser/Racer has been designed with the seriously discerning performance orientated sailor in mind. Fast, fully fitted out, safe and comfortable design, engineered to ABS requirements for Offshore Racing Yachts, the Ker 39 is a natural development of our Cruiser/Racer range which started with the highly successful FLYING GLOVE (Custom Ker 39) in 2003.
The hull shape used for the production Ker 39 is the product of extensive computational fluid dynamic (CFD) research during 2006, a significant number of candidates were analysed leading to some surprising and highly exciting conclusions. The final shape selected for the new Ker 39 has shown to be significantly faster than the already highly successful previous generations and also promises to have very favorable handling characteristics.
The appendage shape and sizing for the new Ker 39 are the product of considerable CFD and other research and in particular research has focused on ensuring forgiving performance and handling characteristics.
RCD Status: The yacht conforms with the essential safety requirements of Directive 94/25EC (Recreational Craft Directive) and is categorised A – “Ocean”
Hull, Deck & Superstructure Construction: • Female moulded hull and deck in wet-preg e-glass and epoxy on a closed-cell foam core. • Structures in accordance with ABS regulations. • AwlGrip painted exterior hull and decks. • Underwater paint is epoxy primer up to approximately 100mm above the waterline. • Teak cockpit sole and seats.
Keel & Rudder: • Galvanized steel keel floors grid to take keel/rig loads out to longitudinal structure. • Carbon fibre rudder stock and quadrant with emergency tiller attachment point. • Conventional T-shaped keel with iron fin and CGF optimized lead bulb.
