Design 1836 - Kim

A blog reader asked us to post information about this boat so here you go. Kim was built of aluminum by the famed Abeking & Rasmussen Shipyard of Germany and launched in 1967. She was designed as a cruising boat and her heavy displacement might reveal that fact. She was designed well equipped with mechanical refrigeration, pressure water, hot water system and generous batteries for her house bank.

She is now called Night Watch as she was when the image above was snapped in the British Virgin Islands.

Here are the plans. Please note the "kicker" above the rudder in the arrangement plan (inboard profile view).

Principal Dimensions
LOA 54'-8"
LWL 37'-6"
Beam 13'-4"
Draft 7'-7"
Displacement 41,930 lbs
Ballast 18,500 lbs
Sail Area 1,836 sq ft
