The challenge Jason Ker had to face when asked to come up with the concept for the new KER53 C/R was complex. To be fast, win races under IRC and at the same time to be safe and comfortable for performance cruising were the key elements in the owners' brief. Taking advantage of America's Cup technology, such as tank testing and CFD analysis, and the latest in interior design thinking from DESIGN UNLIMITED, the concept for the KER53 C/R was born.
Radical, yes. But also light and practical. Fully equipped with the latest high modulus carbon rig and sail designs, and “state of the art” deck hardware, the KER53 C/R is the ultimate no compromise “ready to sail” package. Defining new standards on the IRC circuit.
