1961 Kettenburg K40 Sloop Sailboat in Ventura, California

Stock #186416

This Kettenburg 40 is a rare find. She is an excellent example of a Kettenburg K-40 built in 1961 at the San Diego, California based Kettenburg Boat Works. A total of about 40 of these boats were built and this is number 34. Known for speed over the water, comfort, and simplicity down below, these boats were a high watermark for the designers. The Kettenburg design team achieved their first fame with the sleek, very fast sailor the 32' "Pacific Class" (better known as PC's) in 1932. These enduring boats are well remembered all over California and the West Coast and are still prized today.

This K-40 is a direct descendant of the fastest boats the Kettenburg's built - but larger more comfortable, and able to be cruised. K-40's like this were raced with success in the famous Newport-Ensenada Race by winning in 1959 -- beating a field of 500 contestants. This boat's lives up to her namesake by continuing the tradition of speed under sail by having her share of race victories including those in the McNish Classic. Her sleek lines, rich woodwork, and elegance hearken back to times past of boat building quality and excellence. Allow this piece of California sailing history to take you and yours on new adventures of a lifetime.

Dinghy included: Inflatable
