Named after a lovely bay on Colonsay, part of Argyll and the Islands, she was delivered to her current owner in 2015.
To have a look at KILORAN, please have a look at this walk through –
The Mk II Discovery has some lovely, subtle updates on her earlier sisters with flush companionway hatch garage and hatches, wrap around deck saloon windows and very funky grills aft of them.
Down below the main saloon is a great open space with a large seating area to port and sofa to starboard. The hull windows have been enlarged and the owners’ stateroom has stunning vertical hull windows.
Of course the Mik II is a full fat Discovery 55 with all the features that make the sisterhood benchmark bluewater cruising yachts – Solent rig so that everything is done from the cockpit, self tacking jib, one of the most comfortable cockpits on the planet, sparkling and rewarding sailing, proper see out deck saloon, interior watch keeping, masses of stowage and on the list goes.
KILORAN has a very full specification for bluewater and has been immaculately maintained through life. She has cruised on both sides of the Atlantic and is very familiar with the Scottish waters from which she takes her name.
The winter of 2020/21 saw a refit which includes –
Full repaint of the topsides in flag blue Awlcraft.
Full review of the rig.
Upgrade of instrument panels.
New bimini and spray hood.
Toe rail and hull repair from some damage sustained in early winter.
New safety gear.
Refurbishment of the rudder.
Refurbishment of the saloon leather upholstery.
Built to MCA Category 2 she is maintained to this standard. This offers a new owner the confidence that she is ready for serious cruising as well as the opportunity to do some charter with her if that is interesting.
Below KILORAN has a lovely maple interior with Amtico floors in cherry. She has light leather saloon upholstery with striking red leather navigation seat and seat for the saloon which is detachable. There is extensive use of burrs and detailing in the saloon table and on the doors around the yacht. The mirrors are set into the joinery and look quite simply – the business….
