Kraken Yachts was founded with one objective, to build the best blue water yachts ever launched.
At Kraken Yachts, we believe there is no such thing as a yacht for all purposes and first the designer and builder must decide what the purpose of the yacht is.
Similarly, an owner must also decide what the prime purpose of the vessel they are purchasing is.
If that purpose is to go blue water cruising around the world, you are in the right place, we build nothing else.
Many of the principles of design and construction of a Kraken yacht are derived from the vessels that have sailed our seas for time immemorial. We compromise nothing to fad or fashion and while the stylish look of a Kraken yacht turns heads in marinas or anchorages throughout the world, our up to the minute interior designs are contemporary. Safety and comfort are our driving factors.
Our owners discover that the tracking and motion of a Kraken yacht are unparalleled, and their ability to look after the crew when the going gets rough stands unmatched in modern yacht building.
The fine entry of the bow stem combined with the V shape of the forefoot of the hull eliminates slamming, even when going hard to wind in big headseas.
We go sailboat cruising for fun and enjoyment and in a Kraken yacht, it’s all about the voyage, not just the destination.
New 525 EV
The Island Spirit 525 implements the best of what clients like, including walk through salon, forward seating area and some trampoline, large flybridge, aft seating area for group meals, large galley and storage area, all en-suite cabin configurations, and crew accommodations. With a generous sail plan and relatively light displacement, this model will be a very powerful sailing catamaran.
Electric Drive Option
Group Island Spirit partnered with major system developers in the EV industry to develop an electric drive system that is affordable, safe, reliable, and functionally practical. E-Drive system characteristics:
- Powerful range extender that will charge the system at 55KWh
- Powerful drive motors with a 65kW (88hp) rated power
- Large E-drive system storage with 210KWh
- Supplemental solar charging up to 4.8kW
The design of the boat is very efficient; only requiring 37kW to power the boat at 8 knots giving sufficient run time in daily charter operations and unlimited range while running the range extender.
(The diesel tank is – 264 US Gallons – assuming a 50% load – the 55kw genset should use about 3 gallons per hour – that would be roughly 88 hrs)
