The Latest Kraken 50

In-build at Kraken Yachts

It’s been another busy month at Kraken Yachts. The latest Kraken 50 is now finished and will soon be handed over to her happy new owner!

1.

We left off last month as the yacht was loaded onto a truck and driven down to the launch point. It is quite a sight to see as the truck carefully navigates the streets. Obviously, this is done during the middle of the night to cause as little congestion as possible.

2.

The following morning, the Kraken 50 is lifted off the transport and lowered into the water. Once the system checks are completed, we motor the yacht around to the builder’s dock in preparation for mast stepping.

3.

The mast is spliced by our excellent rigging team and lowered into place. We are now exclusively using Selden masts for their high quality and excellent service.

4.

Once the mast had been stepped, we used some dacron test sails for our sea trials. Once the sea trials were completed, we received the brand new hybrid spectra, radial cut sails from Quantum.

5.

This owner specified an in-mast furling system. Here is the new main, tightly furled away in the mast.

6.

Once all the sails were onboard, we took the yacht out to test them immediately, needless to say, the owner was very happy.

7.

As the yacht is prepared for handover, we take a look at some of the interior, starting with the aft master cabin. This client has chosen to have a split mattress which allows for a 3rd leeboard to be inserted in the centre of the berth.

8.

Next, we have the galley. There are a few minor changes on this Kraken 50 compared to the last. We now install the GN Espace Ocean Chef 3 induction cooker as standard. This owner also selected the Quooker boiling water tap which is a great addition to the yacht.

9.

Moving through to the forward cabin, this owner has selected a different layout to the last Kraken 50. This forward cabin arrangement includes a double berth with a large bunk above, a spacious head with walk-in shower to port and a huge amount of storage space.
