Kira Kira Liveaboard was designed and built in Bira, South Sulawesi, and no detail was overlooked in her crafting. With a double ironwood keel, her body was first shaped over fires and her ribs crafted from Bitti timbers, all topped with a thick teak deck and a ketch sailing rig. Featuring a low-lying structure with a large deck, this enchanting craft was built with the environment in mind. Hence the electrical systems are run using a battery bank in order to reduce emissions and operational noise. She motors up 7 knots and sails with the winds, giving her a cruise range of up to 1000 nautical miles and making her one of the most economical and environmentally friendly boats in our fleet.
