The launch of a 38 metre superyacht named Kia Ora has been announced by Sanlorenzo Spain. Launched at the Viareggio shipyard on February 1 2020, Kia Ora is the 20th hull in the successful Sanlorenzo SD126 series to hit the water.
The four-deck semi-displacement motor yacht is the largest fibreglass yacht produced by Sanlorenzo and is the flagship of the ‘SD’ semi-displacement range. The model seamlessly combines Sanlorenzo’s heritage lines with technological innovations and impressive autonomy at sea.
