The Kettenburg K-40 is 40' overall and carries 5000 lbs of lead ballast in her keel which is bronze bolted to her keel timber. She is constructed of 7/8" Philippine mahogany planks over steam bent oak frames. 10'4"' beam, 5'4"" draft. Sail area 556 square feet. The exquisite beauty of the K40's lines, its ideal size, its incredible feel of balance and speed, its sleek, narrow hull, its meticulous craftsmanship in wood and its silent, easy motion in a seaway combine to make it superior to all other yachts for sailing in California's waters.
Designed by Paul Kettenburg, and built at the renowned Kettenburg Boat Works on Shelter Island, Francis Caroline is the 31st boat of this design built in 1961 of Carvel planked Mahogany. Kettenburg boats are still recognized as the "Aristocrats of sail" on the Pacific Coast and represent the finest in West Coast craftsmanship.
This Kettenburg K-40 is overall in good condition. She has received lots of regular maintenance over the years. This Yacht is in the possession of owner's daughter following his untimely passing. She has been lovingly cared for, but has some small bits of rot at the plank ends near the transom. See the detailed pictures attached to this listing. Overall yacht is in very good condition. Her mast is removed and in storage waiting for her new owner to give her fresh varnish and rigging. The Farymann diesel is reported to be non-op and needs replacement.
