Re: Kaufman 47
Hello, we have a 1985 Kaufman 47 Cutter. After getting ours in 2016, I tried to locate others to get more information. We even contacted the Kha Shing yard, but they had no records. I finally spoke with Michael Kaufman. As he recalled, only 27 of the 47 foot model were built. Ours has a swing keel: five ft. up, and seven ft. down. We also have a teak deck that unfortunately is nearing EOL. I personally know of only two other Kaufman 47's: Quetzal and Redemption, but here is one for sale...

Re: Kaufman 47
Thank you michaeld for pointing me towards the Oxnard Kaufman 47. I've dropped
enquiries to the sellers with no response. Maybe the boat has been sold?

Re: Kaufman 47
Hi michaeld the Oxnard Kaufman 47 is offered as a 1982 Kha Shing Kaufman 47. I'm puzzled as I understood Kha Shing started building Michael Kaufman's 47 footer in 1985/6. It leads me to think the boat could be a CT built Kaufman 47. Any thoughts or insights?
