Que Será

In Festival Boats 2021

Que Será is hull number 11 of a limited production run of 19 K43 Sloops built by Kettenburg Marine, San Diego in the mid-1960s. To our knowledge, she is one of three K43s built with teak decks, house and cockpit. She was extensively raced by her original owners in Southern California winning the Wrigley Cup shortly after her launch.

We purchased Que Será in 1985 and lived aboard for 10 years cruising the West Coast of Mexico, the Society Islands, Hawaii, and the Pacific Northwest. Que Será has been moored at the Port Townsend Boat Haven since 2001, when we moved to Coupeville, Whidbey Island, Washington.

Recent work includes restoration of the transom, aft deck, cockpit and mast; replacement of all plumbing and electrical systems; interior and exterior finishes taken down to bare wood and renewed; new canvas, sails and running rigging.
