Kraken Yachts’ directors Dick Beaumont and Roger Goldsmith were determined that the new Kraken blue water cruisers should be easy to sail. So a fully thought out deck plan using top quality gear was an essential part of their plan.
They collaborated from the start with Harken, whose UK Sales Manager Tom Peters says “We are seeing growing trends towards semi custom boats and expect this growth to continue. Our customers now expect to be able to tailor products to meet their needs.
Tom went on to add; “It is not often that a new brand enters the market place with a complete range of blue water cruising boats. Harken’s aim was to ensure that we delivered a complete winch and deck hardware package to Kraken Yachts that made the sailing experience effortless and 100% reliable, allowing the sailors to enjoy sailing the boat rather than fighting it.
Harken winches and deck hardware have been proven over many years to be the choice of sailors, both cruising and racing. All our products are designed, engineered and rigorously tested to meet the demands of sailors. Roger Goldsmith was after great reliability and a wide reaching global network – should spares or advice ever be needed – and at Harken we pride ourselves on offering both of these.”
