The DK46 is a race-tuned performance racer, the hull and foil shape were designed with performance in mind and the cockpit layout is spacious and well thought through. However, the designers have also included a spacious fitted interior for comfort.
Hydra is a sensational boat in the Mediterranean, with a large sail plan she picks up in the lightest of airs buts still performs in the windier conditions.
Mills Design and DK Yachts teamed up to produce a production IRC design which delivered new levels of performance and comfort. Marketed by Boat Sales International, the DK46 brought together three design criteria to achieve the highest performance IRC cruiser/racer: a hull and foils optimised for racing; a specification which will provide a competitive IRC rating; and a spacious and comfortable interior. The result was a genuinely dual-purpose yacht.
Hydra is brought to Boatafloat.com by Performance Yacht Charter.
"By cruiser-racer, we mean a fully-fitted interior: massive full height galley, three cabins plus a big saloon, full toilet and shower, hot and cold running everything. The kind of boat you would race for a week in, say Cork Week, and then take it cruising with your mates or family, feeling no compunction to sleep anywhere else but onboard" Toby Heppell Yachts and Yachting
