Very competitive, IRC-optimized 32-footer. This pocket rocket is a giant killer.

Designed by Jason Ker for all-round performance, the Ker32 is one of those rare, magic IRC designs that keeps winning (like the J35 or BH36). It is in walk-on and win condition.

Boat Name: Resolution of Whitby

It’s easy to realise from the moment you step aboard “Reso” that this a handsome sloop. It is completely put together like an Aston Martin and balanced to stand her watch and hand steer through a gale but then turn out a stunning meal afterward. A powerful Bluewater performer and a supremely comfortable coastal cruiser, the more you look the more you find that every piece is in place to make the 523 appeal to a wide spectrum of sailors and non-sailors. As she is a thrill to sail and a delight to entertain on.

Such is the well balance of the yacht and ease of use she lends herself to club racing with a IRC handicap to come out a winner even if she passes the line soon after the full-on racing yacht. But they won’t cross the line with a G&T in-hand.
