Boat and trailer sold for over US$23,000 in 2012. For those not familiar with the K-6, From the Rondar website: Designed using a CAD system, the original plugs were shaped using a 5 axis milling machine. This process allows for more sophisticated design, and gives a perfect symmetry to the mouldings. This shows in the fine lines and sweeping curves giving superb comfort, perfect handling under sail, and an elegant, yet modern look to the boat.
The K6 is constructed using the revolutionary SPRINT process developed by SP systems. The hull and decks are constructed from epoxy resin and PVC foam sandwich, and oven baked, giving the very best laminate possible. The finished hull is massively strong, stiff and very light. The Design incorporates many additional features such as storage hatches.
The long light hull is easily driven, so the sail plan is designed for maximum efficiency and low drag, rather than maximum area. Sails are radially cut Mylar sails with large windows for good visibility. The jib is sheeted to a self tacking car, and the cockpit is simply laid out with Vang, Cunningham and jib controls accessible to helm and crew.
The moderate size asymmetric spinnaker is easily handled and set on a long pole for easy gybing and good visibility. The bow chute makes launching and dropping effortless. Spars are carbon fibre and are one design. They are very light to handle ashore and of course, there is less weight to balance aloft when the boat is heeling.
