Fresh from the successes of the McConaghy Ker 40, Ker Design received multiple requests by owners for a high performance yacht in the 45 foot range. The result is the new Ker 46 built by McConaghy Boats, this design is a development of one of the most successful inshore/offshore designs since its launch in 2009 – the Ker 46 Tonnerre. Ker Design have used the data from Tonnerre, together with enhanced design software, to design a fast and affordable yacht, optimised across a wide range of conditions for successful IRC and ORCi racing. With Tonnerre as a starting point – further refined by Ker Design and constructed and finished by the meticulous McConaghy Boats, the fully carbon Ker 46 is priced at USD $659,000 for delivery mid 2012. A very competitive boat – without compromise at a very competitive price.
