Ker Yacht Design , widely considered the leaders in this field of yacht design with a uniquely proven ability to produce smaller high performance race-boats that are competitive under IRC.
Aimed squarely at the owner who while being excited by the TP’s and 40’ Racers on the market, chooses to apportion a much smaller budget to their racing and be closer in speed to the production cruiser-racers which make up a typical local fleet. Purpose built for handicap racing under IRC and ORCi, the Bolt 37’ will be exciting to sail, and very fast for its size, but at the same time the parameters have been selected with a careful eye on the rating rules. Extensive CFD based optimisation techniques have led to lower hydrodynamic resistance but a particular effort has also been made to ensure the yacht is forgiving to sail, making it easier for the crew to extract its full performance potential. Designs from the Ker office have achieved many successes on the race course and have won many international trophies around the world, at regattas and classic offshore races. Key features of the design include:
High adrenaline sailing, but with a fair rating.Excellent value.
Modern ergonomic flush deck.
Powerful sail plan but moderate wetted surface area ensures good performance in all wind conditions.
3.5m maximum beam allows trucking/towing without police escort in many countries.
IRC rating: 1.167
