Deutscher Kraftboot Verband

"Deutscher Kraftboot Verband" literally means "German power boat federation". It was either a predecessor, successor or parallel organisation of Deutscher Motoryacht Verband or GermanyDeutscher Motorboot-Klub. And it appears that it was either the motor yacht division of Deutscher Segler Bund or at least affiliated with that organisation. There is only one small image on the title of an almanac.
The ensign was white parted by a black cotised centred cross, in centre is a black disc with white inscription "DK" (1st line) "V" (2nd line centred). In the canton is a black anchor in bend.

The ensign was the same like that one of the federation but with an additional black "J" in lower fly.
