Classic meets contemporary

Kirribilli I's design is simple and elegant. Conceived through a collaborative effort between the renowned architect Renzo Piano and Studio Vismara, she marries classic style with contemporary design. The result is a yacht that is arguably in a class of her own, exuding a traditional yet modern aesthetic.

What sets Kirribilli I apart is the continuous design flow that extends across all surfaces. She features an entirely flush deck and streamlined hull lines, giving her a minimalist, polished aesthetic and spacious onboard areas. A striking characteristic is the pale mother-of-pearl shade adorning the hull, deck and bulkheads, giving the impression that these elements are a part of the natural environment. This connection to the world outside creates the perfect atmosphere for a sea-loving owner.

Impressive performance

Kirribilli I is meticulously crafted with advanced technology and refined hydrodynamics, ensuring a remarkable blend of speed and stability. The sandwich hull, composed of fibreglass, carbon fibre and epoxy, enhances both efficiency and strength. Her sail inventory includes an electric furling genoa, a fully battened main sail, a staysail, Code 0 and jib – all by North Sails - and a Doyle gennaker. All of this made her triumphant in the 2012 Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in Sardinia and the Norwegian Færder Sail Race.

Whether you're sailing in fair weather or facing the challenge of rough seas, Kirribilli I is both durable and reliable. When engine power is required, a 125hp Yanmar engine provides a top speed of 10 knots and a comfortable cruising speed of eight knots, with a total of 2,450 engine hours under her belt.

Your home on the water

While Kirribilli I excels in terms of design and performance, she was also built with onboard comfort in mind. With capacity to accommodate up to 12 passengers in three cabins, including a spacious double cabin located aft, this yacht has ample space for family and friends, and crew quarters are located forward.

The saloon features round tables and crescent-shaped sofas, creating an inviting and sociable atmosphere for you and your guests. Adding to the allure is a hidden fold-down swim platform in the transom, offering a convenient access point to the water.

The attention to detail inside Kirribilli I is also noteworthy. Sharp edges and corners are non-existent in her interiors, ensuring the utmost safety and comfort on board. With a brand-new spray hood among other recent upgrades, the current owner has meticulously maintained the yacht, preserving her in superb condition ready for a new owner.
