1989 SCEPTRE 41 - PILOTHOUSE OFFSHORE CRUISER
"Kiana" would make a great live aboard and offshore cruiser! The owner completed a shake down cruise in April 2017 from Newport, OR to Anacortes and made the run in under 3 days motor sailing all the way. She's a solid and proven reliable offshore cruiser.
The Sceptre 41 provides a unique combination of exceptional cruising comfort and manageable performance under sail or power. The low-profile deck house provides good visibility from below and from the cockpit while the modestly raised pilothouse offers loads of light. The spacious main cabin accommodates the inside helm station, nav area, galley, U shaped dinette. The Sceptre 41 is designed for comfortable long distance cruising and fast ocean passage making.
Unlike other Sceptre 41 on the market, Kiana offers a true inside helm station with helm seat and electrical/electronic cluster and nav station to port of the steering station.
The modified fin-keel w/ protected rudder/prop and the abundant amount of storage for cruising gear, provisions and cruising spares will capture the attention of anyone serious about owning a proven long distance cruiser. "Kiana" is a rare find that offers an interior condition that is above the norm for this age vessel. The interior woodwork is in exceptional condition.
One of industry's finest examples of a modern offshore pilothouse cruiser with dual steering stations. This iconic blue water yacht, built in 1988/89 in British Columbia, was designed by Canadian Hein Driehuyzen and featured in the book "The World's Best Sailboats" by sailor and photographer Ferenc Mate.
