BUILD Specification

All Kraken’s comprise of a one piece hull and integral Zero Keel which houses a sealed lead ballast bulb.

The hull lay up is built using 25-28 layers of composite engineered fabrics bonded together by vinyl-ester resins.

The general hull thickness is a minimum of 20mm.

Aramid fibre composites (Kevlar) is also used in all impact areas, the bow stem, the front of the keel and the keel base.

The hull topsides incorporate 25mm closed cell foam, the FRP foam sandwich which extends from 50cm (20″) above the waterline to deck level. This structure improves insulation and overall hull form rigidity.

The rudder and steering system is the most vulnerable element of any yacht, in recognition of this, the Kraken engineering and design team have developed the world’s safest rudder and steering system.

The rudder is fully protected and supported by a full length skeg with an integral stainless steel beam, which has at its foot the first rudder bearing. The 4″ (100mm) rudder stock has a second (main) bearing at its centre as it passes into the hull at the transom. This bearing is accessible and removable from the inside of transom. Even at sea!

The rudder stock has a removable third bearing at the top inside the stern lazarette. The rudder itself, comprises an integral stainless steel armature, which is welded to the stainless steel rudder stock. It is then finished and faired using FRP/vinyl-ester. 

A heavily reinforced ‘solid crash zone’ below the anchor chain locker, incorporating high density closed cell foam with substantial reinforcements in aramid fibres extends from above the waterline to 60cm below it. This solid area runs through to the first sealed bulkhead providing maximum collision protection. Click here for illustration

All longitudinal and latitudinal structures are individually bonded in during the hull layup stages with no prefabricated structural components. Click here for illustration.

All bulkheads are vacuum infused FRP with 25mm structural foam core. No plywood is used. There are two watertight sealed bulkheads forward, one between the anchor locker and the forward lazarette and a second one between the forward lazarette and the interior. A further watertight, sealed bulkhead at the stern divides the interior from the aft lazarette.

The structural bulkheads are fully bonded into the hull stringers & frames.

The deck is vacuum infused FRP using composite fibres and vinyl-ester resin with a structural foam core. This provides high levels of rigidity and insulation. 

The deck structure is single skin FRP around the base of all deck fittings.

The outside finish of the deck is panelled non slip gelcoat with Flexiteek side decks and cockpit sole as standard. 

All Kraken’s have an Integral moulded safety bulwark with concave internal surface for superior deck safety at sea.

Ultra-high impact resistant laminated glass is used in the wrap around saloon windows and port lights, so that accidental damage will not result in water ingress to the interior.

Standard hull gelcoat colour is Signal White. Many colour options available at owners choice. 

Double line boot top in Alwgrip to owners colour choice.

3 x coats of primer and sealer applied below the waterline before standard antifoul in dark grey, other colour choices available.

All Kraken’s are designed and built to exceed ISO CE RCD Category ‘A’ –  or to ABYC standard or other local area equivalent at owners request.

Full Specifications

The Kraken 66 represents our core values of safety, comfort and live aboard luxury. It is the ultimate Blue Water cruising yacht and while it can accommodate up to eight crew in comfort, it can be easily handled with just one crew on watch. As with all Kraken yachts, the Kraken 66 is built with a very robust construction process and design features specifically designed to enable its crew to explore the entire world. Alongside numerous design features, the K66 is built with the integral ZERO™ Keel and now the ALPHA™ Rudder System, incorporating a full length skeg-hung rudder which protects the rudder from collision damage from floating debris or grounding.

Every Kraken yacht comprises many unique design concepts and features that are simply not found on other yachts, and the hull, deck, lay up and keel and rudder construction method, far exceeds that of any other yacht in production today.

 

Sea worthiness and safety have been the overriding factors in the development of every Kraken yacht, and we know, no other yacht is as well specified for the purpose of taking its owner and crew in safety and comfort across the great oceans and around the world.

Full Hydraulic based systems as standard to provide improved power, reliability and simplicity of maintenance to all equipment.

Please note: The Kraken 66’s standard specification is fully inclusive of many items of equipment that are normally only found as upgrades or options.
