SK2 – AFFORDABLE PERFORMANCE & FUN WITH OPTIONS

The SK2 delivers a high specification for the money. An asymmetric sportsboat with a canting keel that planes upwind and responds like a dinghy.

SPORTSBOAT RACER  OR PERFORMANCE DAYBOAT

The SK2 is equally a capable racer for 2-3 crew or a performance day-sailor with family and friends. Developed as a strict one design class in mind it is equally suitable for a wide range of mixed fleet racing. The SK2 has been shown to live happily and be equally competitive amongst dinghies, sportsboats and more varied inshore club fleets. A true cross-over boat.

 

TRAVELLING AND LAUNCHING

Weighing in at only 210kg (hull & Keel) it is towable by any car. At this weight an SK2 is also easily launched by hand like a dinghy from the beach or a boat slip.

 THE CANTING KEEL

SK2’s thoroughly developed package provides a new experience. The difference is the canting keel. Easily operate manually the canting keel provides additional righting moment and allows full use of SK2’s powerful sailplan. Together this makes the SK2 suitable for a wide range of wind conditions. It also offers an ideal trialling vehicle for those with an eye on something bigger.

THE TEAM

Swing Keel Sailing Ltd are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of design, performance, quality and fun. The core team’s yacht design experience is combined with the expertise of its broad range of associates and advisers to create something new.

THE CANTING KEEL

A preferred movable ballast system employed on grand ocean racers it has been redeveloped and miniaturised to work on a 5.6m sportsboat. An idea initially brought to the table by Derek Clark and the final engineering of the keel strut provided by Owen Clarke Naval Architects has delivered a successful solution for the SK2. The canting keel is manually operated through a simple 6:1 purchase system. Its 73.5kg mass has a draft of 1.27m and can be canted up to 45deg either side. Minimising the number of movable parts has ensured that the system is very robust.
