About this Rob Humphreys 43


Conceived as a versatile fast safe blue water cruising yacht, KILORAN was commissioned by the owner of rival Bowman Yachts to fulfil his own personal cruising plans. While the Bowman 40/42 was a fine cruiser, KILORAN’s owner wanted a yacht that could crawl up the shallowest of creeks as well as cross the most formidable of oceans. A lifting keel and cold-moulded West-system construction offered the right balance of strength, stiffness and insulation properties. Thus this custom design and build was specified.

The combined skills of Rob Humphreys and Steve Dalzell assured this quite special design and one that the Lathams / Westons Points Boatyards in Poole were ideally qualified to build. Launched in 1993 and with continual development and updating ever since, KILORAN is a well-proven yacht; versatile, safe, comfortable and with real performance.

Under the current owner KILORAN has undergone constant refits and upgrades including a new teak deck and sub deck fitted and with her hull and superstructure painted in Awlgrip Oyster White (2013) all new standing rigging (2013) and most running rigging replaced since then. She has always been stored undercover, mainly in Scandinavia and is in impressive condition and much admired. The current owners and family have cruised KILORAN extensively and safely on the English south coast, all of Ireland, Scottish west coast, Northern Isles, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and the Baltic. Now in their 70’s they plan a substantial downsize, and are motivated to sell. KILORAN offers well-considered sail away potential, for anyone considering an immensely strong, value for money offshore cruising yacht.
