KAILANI was designed by the people who literally wrote the book on Offshore Cruising, Steve and Linda Dashew. Deerfoots are considered by many to be the finest shorthanded cruising yachts afloat. The Dashew concept of a long range cruiser that is fast, comfortable and easily sailed by a couple is perfectly embodied in the Deerfoot 63, KAILANI. She was built by Salthouse Brothers in New Zealand to the highest standards, and she will impress all who step aboard. She has safely carried her owners and family nearly twice around the world in comfort. The owners are moving to power for a couple of years with their new boat on the way and KAILANI is seriously for sale. Highly Recommended.

Equipment:
The Deerfoot 63 was the last design in the Deerfoot series and incorporates the best of its forebears. Details like her plumb bow, long waterline, watertight bulkheads, integrated water tank in the keel, sea chest, and balanced rudder were radical departures from the idea of what a cruising boat should be. Those details have proven to be winners and many builders have adapted those concepts into their designs with plumb bows and sugar scoops the norm thanks to the success of the Deerfoot concept. The Dashews also recognized that repairs and preventative maintenance are an integral part of the cruising life and intentionally designed the Deerfoot to segregate the machinery in a purpose-designed space aft behind a watertight bulkhead. Here you will find the main, the generator, most of the pumps and the refrigerator and HVAC compressors, all arranged with easy access. The design puts a premium on safety with subtle features such as a sturdy stainless steel pulpit completely surrounding the cockpit, three lifelines forward of the mast, slightly canted outboard decks so that the high side is level on a heel in a sea way, an unencumbered run for the jacklines from the cockpit to the bow pulpit and decks painted in reflective material. The deep spade rudder has a lower sacrificial break away section that leaves sufficient rudder area to continue to steer following a collision.
