Carkeek 40MKII - Concept

Concept:

An all-round sailing yacht, the Carkeek 40 is equally at home inshore around the buoys or offshore for long distances.  

From the outset the goal was to produce a simple well priced design, easy to transport, setup, tune, sail, and maintain. Without compromising top end straight line speed, the forms and balance characteristics were designed to be forgiving and easily driven for owner drivers in mind, and with the ability to be sailed offshore with reduced crew. Multiple sailing modes were crucial, and we optimized these accurately using our in-house performance prediction software and race models.



The structural and interior layout is optimized for maximum stiffness to weight ratio and a low VCG. The structure is engineered to both ISO Cat A and ISAF Cat 1, with GL approval. The deck layout and design of the clean over-size cockpit are centered around creating an ergonomic platform to allow fast but safe sailing and manoeuvring and includes the latest TP 52 detailing. The pedestal system is located aft to
improve weight distribution.
