This is a very well maintained and loved 1986 Kirié Elite 346. Kirié was a French builder in Sables d’Olonne and was built to a very high quality build standard. It was designed by Phillippe Harle and Alain Mortain. They are identical to the brand “Feeling” which is still sold in Europe. This is an exceptional medium displacement sailboat that’s very well balanced, fast in light winds but very sturdy and can stand up to big seas and rough conditions. Many of these boats have been used for extended cruising. In 1986, the 13.5 m Feeling won the Route du Rhum in the standard boat category and the 10.9 m Feeling was voted "Boat of the year" in 1987. In 2000, Alliaura Marine took over the Kirié shipyard. As of 2010, Feeling is owned by Privilège Marine (www.privilege-marine.com).
We are the 4th owners of this beautiful boat which has been professionally maintained and stored since new. It has always been a fresh water Great Lakes boat! We know the original owners, and have stacks of documentation on the maintenance, upgrades and repairs that have been done to this boat over the years. The interior has been professionally refit including new electrical panels, AGM batteries (5), plumbing, water tanks steam cleaned, salon cushions, headliner, custom woodwork and new Corian countertop in the head with new faucets (galley and head), to name just a few items. Most of the decks (except for the coach roof) have been professionally repainted; they are 100% structurally sound and solid, devoid of any moisture or soft spots! In 2016 we had the wood core rudder removed and completely rebuilt and reinforced by a professional boatyard, and is now completely dry and better than new.
