The first Mk II of the iconic Discovery 55 sisterhood – KILORAN is available for sale
May 10th, 2023
Discovery 55, KILORAN first splashed in 2015. With all the unique and special features of her sisters – a proper deck saloon, interior watch keeping, a deep protected cockpit, sail handling 100% from the cockpit and practical Solent rig. These yachts were conceived and built for short handed cruising, to sail far aboard.
As the first Mk II KILORAN has a myriad of updates including flush hatches throughout, re-profiled companionway hatch garage, re-designed saloon frameless window design and a lovely open saloon layout. To go with these upgrades are vertical windows in the owners’ stateroom and larger hull ports.
We shot a video walk through very recently and here it is – she’s looking stunning:
Built to MCA Category 2 to provide a safety standard for bluewater, in this ownership KILORAN has sailed extensively in northern Europe, the Mediterranean and in the Caribbean. Because of her easy handling, her owner has been able to single hand her on many passages without fuss.
In 2020/21 KILORAN had a refit on the South Coast of the UK including a full review of her rig, new external canvas, repainted flag blue Awlcraft topsides and upgrades of systems throughout.
Her interior is finished in maple with lovely unbreakable cherry Amtico soleboards, which go well with her leather upholstery in cream and deep red. The lovely joinery is a feature of all Discoverys and KILORAN’s interior has been enhanced with the use of ebony and burr finishes on the main saloon table and her doors.
KILORAN has always been professionally maintained, and laid up when not in use. She is looking extremely fresh and she is very ready for new adventures. The bluewater credentials of the Discovery 55 is undisputed and this fleet of 53 hulls of which KILORAN is number 46 has cruised in both hemispheres, with fleet members visiting high latitude as well as cruising extensively in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and far beyond. It very usual to see Discoverys, with their distinctive Ron Holland good looks, in far flung anchorages the planet over. Many have cruised bluewater in comfort and safety with a succession of owners.
KILORAN is searching for her new owner as her current one has now purchased a larger yacht. She has recently been significantly reduced in price and offers great value. You can find her full specification here: [OFF MARKET].
