A fast and comfortable sailboat

Kaveka is a 43 feet aluminium cutter.

She is the sistership to Philippe Poupon's first exploration sailing boat Fleur australe.

She is extremely comfortable in navigation and at anchor.  This is due in particular to her great draft when the keel is down (4 m).


Her name comes from the marquesian word kaveka. It is a sea bird we can find in all the oceans: the sooty tern.
