Kraken Yachts at the Dusseldorf Boat Show

Kraken Yachts has launched the first Kraken 66 White Dragon, so it’s time for us to set forth on the international boat show trail.


White Dragon’s 400 mile maiden cruise to Hong Kong was a great success. The yacht did everything hoped of a lot more. Even our professional and highly experienced equipment suppliers were excited. Grant McKinnon of Southern Spars (manufacturers of White Dragon’s carbon fibre rig) said 'I might give up race yachts if cruising yachts sail like this ... 10kts of speed in 15kts of wind is pretty impressive'. While Rod Taylor of hydraulic control systems company On Board Systems Ltd added 'she sails with the motion and stability of a yacht twice her size.'

We will be bringing impressive photographic images, 3D walk through shots and aerial video footage of White Dragon to the Kraken Yachts stands at the Dusseldorf Boat Show (stand 16B70 - next to Amel), date January 21 to 29th 2017 and then at the Strictly Sail Miami Boat Show (February 16-20th, 2017).


Full details and specifications of the Kraken 50, Kraken 58 and Kraken 66 models will also be available, along with deck and upholstery samples. We look forward to discussing our exceptional yachts with keen blue-water sailors and prospective clients.


These high quality semi-custom built blue-water cruisers – available at prices similar to those charged for standard volume production boats – are attracting a lot of attention. The first Kraken 50 has also already been ordered.

Kraken Yachts’ Managing Director Roger Goldsmith and Sales Manager Lee Oldroyd look forward to meeting potential Kraken customers at Dusseldorf and Miami. Please also contact us in advance of these boat shows with your initial questions. Or – if you are passing Hong Kong – pop in to visit us. White Dragon will be there until January 12th and is available for trial sails.

We look forward to hearing from you and meeting you at either Dusseldorf or Miami in early 2017.
