KUANKUN - Soto 48
Kuankun is a 48-foot one-off yacht, designed by Argentinian Naval Architect Javier Soto Acebal, by request of the owner. The idea was to build a light, fast and comfortable cruiser-racer yacht, with superior state of the art interior and exterior design. Mboats boatbuilders in Argentina was selected to take on the construction of this boat in 2010.
Carbon fibre 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. 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, 2 carbon steering wheels by Exit Enginiering, B&G H3000 electronics with 5 x 20-20 display, autopilot, marine computer with LCD monitor, chart plotter and much more.
The interior of the boat is also a "must-see" by any fan of minimalist design. With 2 comfortable bathrooms and 2 private bedrooms, a complete kitchen, Kuankun is different from all other boats.
Plenty of North Sails 3di carbon sails, asymmetric spinnakers and almost new cruising sails together with lots of spare parts (carbon bowsprit, spinnaker pole, and much more) complete the inventory of Kuankun.
If you are looking for a ready to race ORC or CSA boat combined with a high tech cruising boat, this could be a great opportunity.
