Some think of adventure as hardship and discomfort. That is not what this vessel is all about. Designed for short-handed cruising, the Kelly Archer Adventure Series feature stout, well-found vessels set up to go anywhere. They put a premium on practicality, safety, seakindliness – keeping crew confortable and secure in all conditions.
Ripple is just as capable of nudging up to icebergs in high latitudes as she is drifting along the canals and waterways of Europe. For those who love to go off the beaten track, this is a rugged go anywhere solution.
Some of the outstanding features include:
A long, narrow, and easily driven hull – economical to operate.
Heavy-duty aluminum construction with three watertight bulkheads.
Large tankage and storage areas make you self-sufficient for up to a year.
Flat bottom with propeller and rudder protected inside an inverted V-tunnel.
Shallow draft and low height makes it ideal for canals and inland waterways.
Principal accommodations are for two couples in double cabins. The owner’s stateroom is forward with ensuite facilities. A guest double is just aft, with a shower and head across the companionway. This serves also as a day head. Additional berths could be utilized in the saloon and pilothouse. A large galley services both inside and outside dining settees.
