'Dralion' has just won the Porquerolles Week 2014

This Ker 53 cruiser/racer is the best of both worlds, a 53ft race boat which is ready to win regattas and a 53ft cruising boat which will cruise and entertain in comfort. She is certainly stylish enough to be the centre of attention at any premier sailing location in the Mediterranean or around the world.

‘Dralion’ is no exception to the rule, she is in stunning condition and benefits from a massive inventory list for a successful regatta season or cruising year. Designed and built using only the best technology available such as tank testing and CFD analysis which is used by the America’s Cup teams.

In her cruising mode she will comfortably sleep six in 3 cabins with two heads, a very well thought out interior will give you the feel of a super yacht and the ‘wow’ factor.

This boat comes with a 20 sail wardrobe (North 3DL/3Di), 40ft container with spares and a 18ft trailer, full set of B&G electronics…

Dralion has recently won the following regattas: Volies de Saint Tropez (IRC-B), Rolex Middle Sea Race (IRC-2) (2011) and Rolex Giraglia (IRC A) in 2012, she is certainly ready to win more with her next owner.

A must have for the thrill seeker wishing to win regattas and take the family on comfortable cruising holidays. Viewing highly recommended.

Winter of 2013/14 the following upgrades were undertaken:

  • New B&G-MPU and all software updated
  • Protrim re-newed
  • Composite bobstay
  • Running rigging
  • Fractional top down furler for re-cutted A7 cruising
  • Mast refit
  • Interior lighting update
  • Spray painted Antifouling
  • Refit of all jammers and 2 primaries
  • New NORTH A1.5 and A3 and Genaker Stay sail
