Our best-selling range, the Kanghua Spirit offers the stiffness and performance expected of an elite-level racing boat for a surprisingly affordable price. Strong and durable as well as lightweight and fast, it has 100% carbon external construction, while the internal skin is 95% carbon and 5% Kevlar to reduce weight and improve impact resistance. Aerospace-grade honeycomb core provides stiffness and excellent resistance to impacts and water ingress. Kanghua Spirit boats have carbon-finish interior and trim, except for the Ix, which has no carbon trim.
Available in all weights and types, from Ix through to 8+, all Kanghua Spirit boats are based on the popular hull shapes widely used in top-class competition and come with shoes, aluminium wing riggers, chevrons/spears if required and a five-year warranty on the hull. Carbon bow wing sculling riggers are available as an option.
