NEW - Ker 46+
Introducing the latest and greatest Ker 46+ design, brought to you by McConaghy Boats.

A lot has happened in the four years since the original boat was created, of which four were built and raced successfully including class wins in the Sydney to Hobart race and many other race wins worldwide.
Both McConaghy Boats and Ker Yacht Design have been continually improving optimisation technologies, that have been honed through various projects and it was clear that the time had come to bring out this new design.
Replacing the Ker46 as our semi-custom offering in this size range, the Ker46+ uses as its generational baseline, the heavily researched Ker40+ that came out guns-blazing in 2015 winning class in the Round the Island race on its first race outing and comfortably winning the first ever 'Fast 40' regatta.
This new 46+ design, is again a step up the performance curve and weighing almost 1000kg's less than her predecessor, she is certainly going to be at the sharp end of any race fleet.

Taking the structural optimisation to levels rarely seen outside of Americas Cup, the final lamination is the product of structural weight v stiffness optimisation, and the deflection of the shape under sailing loads is taken into account in the definition of the moulded shape. Construction is from pre-preg Carbon and carefully selected foams throughout; a large weight saving from the build method used on the infused Ker46 design. The keel and mast support structure follows our tried and tested approach, built in the autoclave on machined aluminium moulds for reliability and accuracy.
