New Upgraded ‘Full Sail-Away’ Specification €979,000

The Kraken 50 is the perfect blue water cruiser for short-handed crews. She also accommodates up to eight crew in comfort, according to the layout chosen. As with all Kraken yachts, the Kraken 50 is built with a very robust construction process and design features specifically tailored to enable her crew to explore the world. The K50 is built with the integral ZERO™ Keel and the ALPHA™ Rudder System which incorporates a full length skeg which protects the rudder from collision damage from floating debris or grounding. The Kraken 50 hull layup comprises 17-22 layers of composite fibres including aramid (Kevlar) engineered fabric,

laminated in a vinyl ester resin system. It’s 18mm construction provides far greater impact resistance and enjoys more integral strength than any other GRP or Aluminium yacht in production today. All Kraken yachts feature the versatile Solent dual headsail rig as standard. The specification of the rigging is deliberately overbuilt to withstand the rigours of ocean sailing. Please note: The Kraken 50’s standard specification is full sail-away and many items of equipment that are normally found as upgrades or options are already included.
