Seller's Description

This is a quick and safe boat with many nice features. We have owned it for 22 years and it has been great for both cruising and racing. Currently on the hard but will be in the water soon. Can be inspected anytime. The Kelt 7.6 is a French design which was first built in France, and under license in Ontario, Canada. It won the very prestigious boat of the year award at the 1980 Paris Boat Show. The Kelt successfully squeezed a lot of living space, including an aft head and a real chart table, in a seaworthy and modern looking 25 footer. This a perfect starter pocket cruiser for a new sailing couple or small family. The vessel has a large V-berth, single berth to starboard and a double berth option to port in the main cabin. The folding teak table seats four comfortably. The navigation station is to starboard with a chart table and storage bin for principal equipment as well as a vhf marine radio. The cushions are in very good condition. The enclosed head is to starboard. The galley is to port and has a two burner butane stove, sink with boot pump. The Kelt’s beam (9’5) and the standing headroom provide a lesson in balance between cruising and racing. Current owner purchased in 2000.

Equipment: Steering system: pedestal with Ritchie compass and mahogany steering wheel. Mahogany emergency tiller. Engine: Yanmar 1GM10 HP 8. Rudder: Mahogany rudder, and bronze Martec two blade folding prop. Bilge pump with manual overide switch. Dripless style packing gland. Electrical: 12 volt battery, battery charger, shore power 125 volt 30 amp, 3 wire marine shore cord with molded connectors (25 feet), Flexible water tank needs replacing 14 gallons. Fresh water system uses 2 manual foot pumps mounted in galley and head. Head: Wilcox-Crittenden manual head with plastic holding tank. Galley: Stainless steel sink, 2 burner canister style butane stove, and recessed ice chest. Electronics: VHF radio made by Standard Horizon, Depth sounder with water temperature gauge. Deck Equipment: Danforth 13 inch galvanized fluke style anchor with chain and nylon rode, Foredeck anchor locker, standing rigging. Sails: 2003 Nordac Race Mainsail, Mylar /Dacron Race 155% Genoa, 75 ounce nylon Spinnaker, Harken Roller Furling, Main Sail Cover, Pedestal Cover, Aluminum Spinnaker Pole, Aluminum Whisker Pole, Windex, Boom Vang, Backstay Adjuster, Winch Handles 3 or more, Fenders 2, Plastic Boarding Ladder, Barbarossa 15 two speed winches 2, Barbarossa 6 winch, screen for companionway Lifejackets, parts, miscellaneous.

Calculations

Hull Speed
?

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Formula

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

?
Classic formula: ?
Sail Area/Displacement
?

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

Formula

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
?
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
?

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Formula

Ballast / Displacement * 100

?
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
?

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

Formula

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
?
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
?

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Formula

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
?
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
?

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

Formula

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
?
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
