K1 single-handed performance keelboat / dinghy for sale.
This unique mini yacht has a lifting keel with bulb weighing 60kg yet its all-up weight is little more than a conventional single-handed dinghy. The hull is constructed using the latest resin infusion techniques to minimize weight. The carbon spars are ultra light and responsive.
The slender hull has little resistance when heeled so is quick and tacks through a very narrow angle. The self-tacking jib is set on a pole for maximum ease of control. The cockpit is deep and comfortable when sitting on the deck edge.
Carbon fibre mast
Selden carbon fibre boom
Carbon fiber tiller
Underwent a complete refit 5yrs ago with new sails, rigging, cleats, self-tacking system, "dangly-pole" (allows jib to be poled out downwind) and all the latest developments in the class.
Many minor additions since then.
Lifting keel with hook-on/off blocks to lower and raise keel easily on the water.
