The Kari 4 follows in the tradition of her smaller sisters in having a hull with 4 planks per side. Her construction starts with the assembly of a plywood framework consisting of a ply fore and aft girder incorporating the centreboard case etc slotted together with ply frames and bulkheads. Stringers are then fitted at the plank lands and the planking can either be put on lapped (clinker fashion) or as a multi-chine shape. The Kari 3 has been strip planked and there is no reason why the same cannot be done on the Kari 4.

Maximum headroom as drawn is 5' 6" (1.68m) and she has 4 berths (including a dinette/double), a wc compartment and galley.

The standard rig has a furling jib and high peaked gaff main but various other rigs could be used along with different keel arrangements - the standard steel centreplate allows a low draft but a fixed keel and inboard engine could be fitted.
