Black Baza was designed to win against all competitors, whether poled or asymmetric, in all conditions and in all types of inshore and offshore racing. Jason Ker, one of the most successful designers in IRC history, created Black Baza’s design after nearly two years of intensive research, which drew on his super-computing capabilities in Valencia, Spain, and five years of Asian wind data.

Black Baza is Ker’s most advanced hull and the design was incorporated into his Ker 40+ boats that compete in the UK’s Fast Forties fleet. The boat is glass and foam infused epoxy. It was intentionally built without carbon (except on limited basis in some panels) to avoid severe rating penalties that could not be overcome with this length of boat competing against older, noncarbon boats. The cabin was carefully designed for access and headroom at no cost to performance. A watertight aft compartment (accessible from deck) was installed for safety.

The owners assembled a world class build team. The boat was built by McConaghy Boats, renown for building high performance race boats. Pure Engineering provided world class engineering input, with the optimum balance between strength for tough offshore racing and weight savings for light air inshore racing.

The owners continued to optimize Black Baza since its commissioning, replacing its original keel with a new longer steel fin and new-design lighter bulb. The owners also engaged Southern Spars and one of the Oracle’s team lead trimmers to perform extensive rig tuning.
Today, Black Baza is fully optimized and easily sails to and above its rating. With a current IRC rating of 1.232, the boat is designed to be at the front of the fleet of its immediate competitors.
The boat starts planning at about 13 knots of wind. Once on the plane, it pulls away from the competition with remarkable speed. The boat performs exceptionally well in tough seas offshore, hitting 20-25 knot speeds indefinitely. Likewise, having shed 400 kgs of its original design weight, the boat is manoeuvrable and competitive inshore.
