2009 Summit King 40 "CheckMate"

The King 40 designed by Mark Mills has been one of the most successful IRC designed boats around the World for over 10 years, and these boats continue to win!

CheckMate is a superb example of this proven IRC racer/cruiser (sistership to King 40’s Soozal and Blitz), and has had a great winning streak in the competitive Western Australian yacht racing fleet, winning many offshore races and the IRC State Championship in 2019. When not racing, CheckMate has been a beautiful family sailing yacht with great cruising interior. The best of both worlds!

She is Professionally maintained, race ready in CAT 2 safety specification and an IRC rating of 1.107 so should be a winner anywhere!
