Boat Description

Boat Show Boat
The Kite is a gaff sloop-rigged centreboarder with a light and airy two-berth cabin, a generous cockpit, light carbon spars and a weight that allows her to be trailed easily behind a family car. She has a Torqeedo Travel 1003 electric outboard but will happily take a conventional petrol outboard. This boat has been used for boat shows, demonstration and magazine articles and so has been lightly used and very well looked after. She comes complete with a Snipe 2 wheeled trailer.
"Not only is she one of the prettier traditional trailer-sailers out there but one of the quicker ones too." - Classic Boat
"Kite, in short, is a delight. She's traditional enough to appeal on the grounds of her looks and performance, yet innovative enough, with her weight-saving construction, to earn a place on the shortlist of anyone who's in the market for a nippy, rewarding, low-maintenance GRP trailer-sailor."
Construction

Hull and deck: Gelcoat finish, with vacuum infused vinyl ester resin, multi axial glass fibre,with a closed cell foam core. Marine grade BS1088 gaboon plywood used in the fit out.Very robust, but lightweight for towing, launching and recovery, with excellent osmosis protection.
Deck:
Mahogany varnished comings around the cockpit offer protection and finish off the spacious, sit in cockpit. The four large cockpit lockers including dedicated outboard stowage that complies with boat safety scheme regs. The raised cockpit seats have the deck scuppers behind them to drain any water away from the seats. Removable cockpit sole boards with a large sump beneath for bilge pump. Companionway sliding hatch and varnished ply washboards, with teak trim. Draining forward well for anchor stowage, mooring cleat etc. Outboard well with hull infill, petrol storage and lid, suitable for up to 6hp outboards. Teak hand rails on coachroof. Moulded in easy to clean non-slip finish.
Deck fittings:
Barton deck gear and bespoke stainless steel tabernacle. Three mooring cleats, fairleads forward. Main, throat, peak and jib halyards lead conveniently back to cleats on coachroof. Sheets and furling lines lead back to cleats in the cockpit.
Foils:
NACA sectioned balanced lifting rudder and internally lead ballasted lifting centreboard. Centreboard lifted via differential winch easily operated from the cockpit. Coppercoat on centreboard as standard. Rudder and centreboard constructed with epoxy resin and glass fibre multi axial cloth. The centreboard incorporates an integral stainless steel wear strip around the tip. Ash and mahogany tiller, with tiller extension, plywood rudder stock, with custom pintles and gudgeons.
Engines
This Kite is powered by the German made Torqeedo Travel 1003 electric outboard motor mounted in a dedicated engine well. The motor is said to be equivalent to a 3hp conventional outboard and should give around 4 hours use at half power or 30 minutes at full power. If no motor is required the hole for the drive leg can be blanked using a moulded blanking plate which reduces drag, increasing sailing efficiency.
