Description: If you are looking for a strongly built and beautifully executed off-shore capable vessel that will really sail then “Kavenga” deserves your attention. She was designed by renowned New Zealand Naval Architect Laurie Davidson and professionally yard built in Auckland, New Zealand. Her underbody sports a performance oriented fin keel and a full skeg protected separate rudder which is a sensible configuration that gives great performance and maneuverability under sail and at the same time offering good protection to the rudder. "Kavenga" was originally sailed from New Zealand to Vancouver and has been used locally as a cruiser and live-aboard since. Her hull is ferro-cement and is without a doubt the best executed example we have ever seen. The general consensus regarding ferro cement as a boat building material has unfortunately been that it is something to be avoided. While it is true that many "ferro" vessels could be termed amateur built backyard disasters, this medium of construction if well executed is an excellent option for an offshore vessel. Her deck and house are of wood principally very high quality South African mahogany plywood with well laid fiberglass sheathing. Everything has been executed to be incredibly strong and functional. "Kavenga's" double spreader rig is well done and had its standing rigging replaced in 2005. This vessel would be suitable and capable for both local or extended cruising. If you are looking for an out of the box, well designed robust cruiser this may be the one for you.
