Description
Fully set up ocean cruiser, design by Kurt Hughes of Seattle, built in Townsville 1996, rebuilt Wellington 2004. Vanuatu registered, NZ tax paid. Stable and fast, a great sailing tri that tacks and beats like a mono and powers away on a reach. Bought for fast Cook Strait crossings to Marlborough Sounds cruising grounds with a shallow draft to get over the Plimmerton bar. We have done a 1000 miles along the Queensland Coast, circumnavigated NZ and cruised up to Vanuatu. Sleeps 5 in comfort. Newly installed ducted diesel heater to handle Fiordland humidity. Fully battened main, with self-furling genoa and code zero, plus spinnaker, and storm jib and main. All safety equipment including Coppins sea anchor and drogue. Powered by a Yanmar 3YM30 with a folding 3 bladed Gori propeller, bow thruster, cruising speed 7 knots. Location: Mana Marina, Wellington, NZ A woman's view of Kaleva. Prior to sailing on Kaleva I had minimal sailing experience, having just sailed a bit in perfect Southern California weather a few times a year growing up. My fiancé was very excited to take me sailing in New Zealand on his family boat “Kaleva.” “It will be March and weather is perfect in Fiordland so that’s where we will go.” “It’s beautiful. You will love it,” he said. After a 7 week circumnavigation of the South Island on Kaleva I can honestly say, this boat is amazing! That was the first of many trips for me. My favourite bits are that she is fast, she is flat, safe and comfortable. When she gets up and goes, you feel like you are flying. You never have to worry about falling in or losing your balance. We have small children that we frequently had on-board in in all conditions, quite comfortably. I am so sad to see the boat go but know a new owner will be very pleased and very lucky.
