S/Y Kailani is a Deerfoot 63 designed by Steve Dashew and built by Salthouse Brothers in New Zealand in 1990. With a waterline of 60' she is fast as well as sea kindly and safe.
We christened her Kailani, a polynesian name that means
"heavenly seas" or "sea and sky" ... we wanted to pay homage to her South Pacific heritage, and the name is harmonious with the sense of peace and fulfillment we feel living as sailors.
Kailani is a solidly built cutter rigged cruising sailboat with the heart of an ocean racer.
