AK 650: a revolutionary boat driving with a Kite!


The Breton shipyard Armorkite presents the AK 650, a revolutionary liveable boat pulled by an inflatable kite. Both sporty and secure, it adapts to all types of output.

A maneuverable boat with impressive performance


This revolutionary 6,50 m boat has no keel or mast and only a 7cm draft. Kite propulsion makes it possible to reach unheard of speeds: 19 knots in 25 knots of wind. The whole family can come along, as the boat easily seats up to 6 people. You can sail around safely at speeds of 5 to 10 knots, towed by a kite.

It has 4 berths, including a large berth forward and two coffin berths. A small outboard engine makes it easy to go out to sea and return to

port. This 6-horsepower model can be driven without a boat license.


AK 650

With its 7 cm of draft, there is no need for a buoy or an anchor, it’s possible to beach the boat directly to enjoy the sun and the day.

This is both a high performance and a very safe boat. You can spend time on board with family and children, because the boat does not heel. The maximum heel angle is 15%.




An ideal navigation comfort for family outings


Armorkite proposes several wings for this boat. For beginners, to learn how to handle the wing with confidence, there is a 8m2 wing. For experienced kite sailors there is a large and powerful 25m2 wing, that can reach impressive speeds.

Unlike conventional boats, the AK 650 can accelerate very quickly, especially when coming out of turns, jibing or coming about.


AK 650

With the AK 650 it’s possible to kite sail as a team: one person manages the kite, the other the helm. The kite attaches to the deck with two back lines, two forward lines and a fifth line. To begin, the kite gets inflated. Once inflated all the lines are pulled tight. Then the kite goes into the water and laid out, then the kite is launched, and the fun begins.

The kite handler sits and directs the back lines, in a safe position, using two blocks. The seated position is perfect for beginners, because it allows you to concentrate on the kite alone.

On this model you have two asymmetrical daggerboards, which can be raised or lowered very easily. Armorkite offers a second model with a

standard retractable centerboard.

The kite lines are controlled by an electric winch, which allow the kite to fly at up to 50 meters. On the boat there are three control systems: one for the forward lines, one for the back lines and one for the fifth line called the « safety », which releases the kite in case of heavy wind or any problem, and brings it safely back on board.

The AK 650 is a very innovative boat. It’s not sailing, it’s not kite-surfing, it’s kite-sailing. Kite-sailing is a new and unique water sport experience.
