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 Thanks to 'camberley98' for providing information.
