Kira is a 1972 Swan 55 yawl. Just 16 Swan 55s were built – Kira has hull number 009 – and all were designed by world famous naval architects Sparkman & Stephens. A name synonymous with performance and racing prowess. This beautiful classic is a proven race yacht having sailed around the world and raced in events on the West coast of America, the Far East, Mediterranean and the UK.

Don’t let the word “classic” fool you.

In 2016, Kira has undergone a total refit with new masts, rigging and sails. Kira also has the latest in technology with a full Garmin navigation set up. Safety of course is our number one priority and Kira is an MCA Cat 0 yacht which means she has been approved as a commercial sailing vessel with the very latest in safety equipment and able to withstand the toughest conditions. At the same time, we have retained as many of her beautiful original features as possible.
