Kanter - Performance Cruising Ketch
FRUITION WILL BE ON DISPLAY AT THE PALMA SUPERYACHT SHOW 28th April - 2nd May 2016 At the time of construction, FRUITION ranked as the largest and fastest of Chuck Paine’s Bermuda series. She was designed and built for the present owner as a replacement for his previous 67ft aluminium ketch, which he had personally sailed in a circumnavigation. Ketch rig was still his choice and the new yacht had to be fast so weight-saving was an important consideration. Thus FRUITION has a long 73ft/22.45m waterline, which increases by about 4ft/1.22m as soon as she moves. The only teak laid area on deck is the cockpit. A huge weight saving is made by opting for a non-slip treated aluminium deck, which has the further benefit of keeping the accommodation - not to mention the crew’s feet - much cooler in the tropics. The owner is a hands-on sailor and so FRUITION has large diameter steering wheels driving chain and wire to the rudder quadrant, producing the “feel” that helmsmen appreciate. FRUITION has excellent deck space with a truly vast aft deck where her big RIB is stowed on passage. For those overnight stops at anchor, the RIB can be hoisted out of the water by the spinnaker halyard to swing against the starboard topside against a couple of fenders. The cockpit is a delight: good to look at and practical and comfortable in use. It is provided with a great dining table and fixed Bimini and a folding sprayhood forward. FRUITION excels with an enormous raised saloon area with dining table, good windows and a chart table of considerable area. The cabin accommodation throughout is extremely comfortable, affording good privacy for both the owner’s party and the crew, of whom 3 can be accommodated. Below is a list of all equipment that has been up-graded in the last years.
