The King 40 is designed to be a true dual-purpose cruiser/racer, effective at racing offshore and around the cans as well as comfortable enough for family cruising. The deck plan was developed to allow plenty of room for a racing crew, but there are also comfortable places to sit in cruising mode. The lead bulb/narrow chord keel and high-aspect rudder should combine to provide excellent upwind performance with a very balanced helm. The masthead A-sail will make any racer happy. And while the accommodation plan will never be confused with a floating condo, it does offer comfortable bunks, a serious nav station, and a spacious and functional settee.
