Luxury Sailing Charter - KIA ORA III



Launched in 1996, KIA ORA III was built for an experienced Swan owner who wanted to produce the most comfortable, easy to sail, long range cruiser possible. This goal was accomplished by upgrading the standard Swan 68 in all areas, including hull, keel, rig, equipment, interior and deck layout. 

An additional two feet was added to the stern providing a more ample aft deck for seating plus additional storage. 

A shallow draft keel was chosen, reducing draft by two feet over the standard Swan 68. Her hydraulically controlled furling main and genoa  along with her full complement of hydraulic winches and well thought out deck make KIA ORA III an extremely easy boat to sail with minimum crew.
