Further price drop on expedition yacht Kahu at Freedom Marine
by Malcolm MacLean
Brian Huse at Freedom Marine gives me the go-ahead to broadcast a further $600,000 price cut on the 37m expedition yacht Kahu.
Built for the New Zealand Navy in 1979, she was converted into a world cruiser by Fitzroy Yachts in 2012 with a new aluminium superstructure. Kahu sleeps up to 16 guests in six cabins, and twin 365hp Cummins engines give her a range of 7,000 nautical miles.
In 2012, Kahu completed a transformation to near ice class specifications with a refit cost of effectively $8,000,000. She is a proven explorer with more than 10,000 miles under her hull and is awaiting her next adventure.
Kahu is now down from $3.5 million to $2.9 million.
