Notes

Predecessors were the KIM A CRUISER and B type dinghy. Both originate from the LIS dinghy build by Hermes Plastik (GER).

The KIM AR was one of the first boats to be granted a CE certification in 1997.
A water jet engine mounted in the stern locker was offered as an option.

Yardstick rating: 122
