Additional Info

Manufacturer Provided Keel Description

The vertically retracting keel is an actual high aspect fin keel with a lead bulb bonded
(glassed and thru-bolted) to the end of the stainless steel reinforced keel foil. This
configuration results in exceptional windward performance, and solid stability, which
is why it is the preferred design for racing sailboats. Add to that design the ability to
vary depth vertically and you have a boat with the performance characteristics of a
raceboat while the keel is extended, but can go shallower than most catamarans with
the keel retracted.


Raising the foils (keel and rudder) vertically has
marked benefits over a centerboard configuration.
• Maintains the boat's design balance by keeping
the ballast at the same relative position on the boat,
unlike a weighted centerboard that moves the ballast
aft as the board is raised along it's arc.
•Preserves hydrodynamic characteristics of the
keel foil by maintaining the same angle relative to
the bottom of the boat, regardless of keel depth.
•Helps point the boat windward, while maintaining
the point of lateral resistance near the center of the
boat, even if partially retracted
• The electric lifting system is mounted at the top
of the keel, it is never submerged. There is no pivot
point to fail, or leak. Our keel trunk is laid up with the
hull, so they form a uniform watertight structure.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The premise that lead us to build the first 32RK arose from our desire to have a boat that would suit the water geography of south Florida, where we have vast expanses of quietly beautiful, but extremely shallow water. Our premise became more complex when we also wanted our boat to take us comfortably and confidently across sixty or so miles of open ocean, across the Gulfstream to the Bahamas and Abacos. Once to the islands, shallow draft would again be an important plus. That thinking lead us to the 32RK.

The 32RK may be the perfect boat for sailors everywhere wanting to get out of the marked channel and into quieter and less traveled waters, but at the same time, don't want to give up the stability and confidence that a deep keeled boat offers when venturing offshore.She's a wonderful fast cruiser even more compelling when you consider the possibilities offered by the variable retracting keel and rudder. Draft range is between 20" and 6' 6", making it possible to walk to shore from your boat without getting your shorts wet. And with the keel down (there's a lead ballasted torpedo-style bulb at the keel's lower tip), you can go almost anywhere. The possibilities are endless.

Aside from its obvious versatility, the 32RK is a fine sailboat. She's sized perfectly for two couples, or for a family with small children. Her cockpit is large and comfortable, side decks are wide and secure and she's designed to be easily handled and sailed by one. Below decks, accommodations are comfortable and intelligently planned , whether for sleeping, sitting and reading, cooking or showering. There's room for four adults and their gear for vacation cruising. The cabin is bright and well ventilated, with eight opening ports and two deck hatches.

Like all true thoroughbreds, the 32RK always has performance potential in reserve, but is never demanding. It's a performance/cruiser at its best: total exhilaration when you want it, calm and steady when you don't. Just lower the foils a bit to dial in more stability, and more upwind performance, and draw them up when you want to get off the boat and stretch your legs on a deserted beach.
