KSS 462ma, or one of her larger or smaller sisters, is typical of our standard cruising designs.
Space, comfort and seaworthy are the objectives, with efficient sail plan for
good average speeds on long passages. Ideal for luxury private yacht or charter yacht.
A number of alternative layouts are available to suit number of cabins required.
This is 3 or 4 cabins, twin diesel sail drives and efficient rig, with fully battened
mainsail and small headsail. We have the overhangs at bow and stern in our typical style;
the bow over hang providing extra reserve buoyancy and the best chance of running over
The Modular Assembly (ma) adds efficiency to all aspects of the production, by doing
almost 100% of the tasks involved in Custom boat building at a time and in a position
where it is readily accessible. On the bench in this case means walking up to the
job while standing on the shop floor. In KSS we have the most efficient build method
ever devised for the structure. Modular assembly adds another layer of efficiency
to the production of the structure but goes on until close to the launch day.
