Production IRC Raceboat - Showed the way with light weight success

In 2010 Ker Design and McConaghy Boats teamed up for the first time to produce the Ker 40. From the outset the design was extremely successful, and quickly proved that light 40 foot race boats could successfully compete against their heavier weight cruiser-racer cousins in a range of conditions including windward leeward racing.
