Kuankun is a 48-foot one-off yacht, designed by Argentinian Naval Architect Javier Soto Acebal, at her owner's request.
The idea was to build a light, fast and comfortable cruiser-racer yacht with a superior state-of-the-art interior and exterior design. M|BOATS builders in Argentina were selected to take on the construction of this boat in 2010.
Carbon fiber was the material chosen for the hull, deck, rudder, and most of the interior furniture, as well as the mast, boom, and bowsprit made by King Marine. PBO rigging by Future Fibres.
The result was exactly what everybody involved in this project expected: a beautiful, unique fast cruiser yacht.
Rarely used for cruising purposes, the boat was professionally raced in Peru, Ecuador, and gave his owner one of his best trophies, winning Antigua Sailing Week CSA1 in 2013.
Other distinctive and key factors of Kuankun's top quality are Teak wood all over the deck and cockpit (refit in 2020), two carbon steering wheels by Exit Engineering, B&G H3000 electronics with 5 x 20-20 display, autopilot, marine computer with LCD monitor, chart plotter.
The interior of the boat is also a "must-see" by any fan of minimalist design. With two comfortable bathrooms, two private bedrooms, and a complete kitchen, Kuankun differs from all other boats.
Plenty of North Sails 3di carbon sails with four asymmetric spinnakers and cruising sails together with lots of spare parts complete the inventory of Kuankun.
If you look for a ready-to-race ORC or CSA boat combined with a high-tech cruising boat, this could be a great opportunity.
Today PBO rigging by Future Fibres is replacing rod rigging, and a furling headsail system can be installed and take off depending on the sailing program.
