KERNOW II is a Kelt 8.50 built in 1985 by Kelt Marine and designed by Gilles Vaton and Patric Roseo. She has a lifting keel and tiller steering.
She is powered by a 20hp Yanmar inboard engine that has been regularly serviced and was re-built in 2016.
She is sloop rigged with a deck stepped mast and swept back spreaders.
This Kelt 8.50 has a surprising amount of accommodation for a 28 footer and has six berths as well as a well equipped galley, a separate heads compartment and large chart table.
The saloon is compact with access to the ‘breton’ berth in the forepeak. There is a double cabin aft with a large porthole style window.
The Kelt 8.50 combines excellent sailing performance with a spacious, light and well designed interior. A great all rounder for family or single handed cruising. Can be used for day trips, weekending or adventures further afield. Equally at home in the open sea or in shallow water, this vessel was revolutionary in its design. The design allows her to sail beautifully whilst having the luxury and flexibility of a shallow draft when needed and the ability to sit upright when drying out.
