The Ker 40 is a light displacement, high performance, IRC Race Yacht designed by talented British designer Jason Ker.

Over the last ten years his designs have stormed onto the international sailing scene in no uncertain terms. In what has been termed the "perfect team" Ker's creation are being expertly crafted by McConaghy Boats.

The Ker 40 is for top level racing in local and international regattas. Designed and optimised for the IRC and ORC rating rules. The concept and design features are dedicated to providing the next step in mixed fleet racing. A lighter, faster boat that still rates very well under various handicapping systems.

The boat is built to the highest standards, utilising the latest hi-tech material and building techniques, comparable with the ones used in Americas Cup Yacht construction and fit out.

It is a top end race boat that is exciting to sail and will have the diversity to race across a wider range of racing categories. Available for inspection at Hamble Yacht Services, nr Southampton England.
