K6

The K6 is one of life's hidden gems, a thoroughly modern, two or three person assymetric keelboat which provides very close one design racing, but with a blistering performance in a breeze, and a classic dinghy feel to the helm and controls. Construction is state of the art, from vacuum bagged, epoxy foam sandwich, with carbon spars, Harken fittings and North sails. The boat is built by Rondar boats, and can ramp launch like a dinghy due to its lifting keel. With over 120 boats now sailing in several countries and a strong lively class association the K6 offers the best mix of sailing and socials, attracting top sailors from the keelboat and dinghy worlds.
