Kraken - The Cover Story
We’re delighted to have been featured on the front cover of the worlds sailing press over the past 2 years.
We have compiled the latest press coverage on Kraken Yachts including reviews of the K66 and K50 from some of the most well known sailing journalists and publications.
Introducing the ALPHA Rudder System, now featured on all Kraken Yachts
Kraken Yachts is dedicated to the continued design and development of the ultimate blue water world cruising yacht.
One of the most vulnerable elements of any yacht is its rudder and steering gear.
The loss of steerage poses a very real threat to the yacht and crew safety. We are proud to announce the ALPHA™ rudder system. This comprises four unique features which hugely improve the crews ability to continue steering throughout circumstances that would disable most other yachts.
Is this the safest bluewater cruising yacht in the world? Kraken sea trial the brand new K50
The first results have just come in for the much anticipated, first sea trials of the Kraken 50 and on all points of sail she has exceeded the production team’s expectations.
The light airs on Xiamen harbour allowed the commissioning team to trial the boat’s sail performance in calm conditions, which as all sailors know are when the best trimming skills are required.
‘On all points of sail we maintained headway and momentum in 1-5 knots of wind, ‘As the wind speeds increased during the week, we achieved eight knots of boat speed in 12-15 knots of True wind.’
