Ke Ama II is a magnificent luxury cruising yacht, designed by Radford (design R23M) and built to Uniform Shipping Laws Code (USLC) Class 2B by Alan Ellis of Construction and fit out by Alloy Engineering and Marine, Ballina N. S. W. This yacht has always been privately owned and, if she was built equipped to commercial class 2B survey standards, she was in fact rarely used for commercial purposes, her owners preferring to keep her for their private use only.

Ke Ama II has her place amongst internationally admired Superyachts. She was built to the very specific, very high expectations of her first of only two owners, as well as equipped and fitted out to state-of-the-arts standards. Ke Ama II has a full time crew and skipper on board at all time, which ensures that she receives ongoing attention and is always handled with the greatest care.

Reminiscent of a time when sailing yachts were built to incredibly wealthy and discerning owners, when production boats had not yet made their appearance to lower the standards of ship building, Ke Ama II displays in every detail the level of expertise necessary to build a boat of this calibre.

From the second-to-none shipwright skills visible in even the smallest joinery detail, to the expansive use of solid, luxurious timbers, top of the range fittings, leathers, high grade stainless steel, etc. Your first sight of Ke Ama II will leave no doubts in your mind that you are looking at a vessel of rare pedigree, which, beneath her graceful lines, possesses immense strength, and whose spacious, luxurious interiors do not place a compromise on the yacht's intelligence of the sea, where her articulations, ease of handling, speed and sea-kindliness all combine to achieve to perfection what the owners wanted: a strong, safe, fast yacht, an object of beauty and pride, yet capable of taking them anywhere in the world in absolute luxury.

Accommodations and Walkthrough:

Deck and cockpit:

Ke Ama can easily be accessed from the water, thanks to her spacious lower-aft deck fitted with a swim ladder designed to allow divers with heavy equipment to safely climb back on board, or when accessed by tender, to provide a well protected, step-off platform. This aft-platform area is also fitted with a hot an cold shower, perfect for rinsing dive equipment or after a swim.

The hard bottom inflatable is stowed on the hydraulic davits on the stern, easy to launch and retrieve.

In spite of her incredibly roomy cockpit / deck lounge, Ke Ama II offers a wide expense of usable, clear deck space, both forward of the mast and aft, where a level, sheltered from the wind and free of clutter area, is a favorite of sun-worshipers and perfect for getting water toys ready to be launched. This area also offers access to two huge and well-organized lazarettes ; one containing the dive-compressor and other diving equipment, and the other a large deep freezer, ice-maker, fishing tackle and gear, and other dedicated storage.

The cockpit and deck lounge are a haven of comfort and luxury in all weathers. It is close enough to the helm and controls to be able to speak to the skipper and enjoy watching the action, yet removed enough to not encumber it. Versatile all weather covers provide protection from the wind or rain as needed. This area, one of the most well frequented of the yacht is equipped with a beautifully varnished, solid teak table with folding sides, comfortable sitting for 10 people, good night lighting and a top of the range sound system.

The helm is situated to provide excellent visibility and quick access to the deck if needed. All electronic equipment and controls to/for hydraulics are available at the touch of a finger. An opening roof hatch above the helm seat provides good cross-ventilation in hot weather as well as a good view to the sails. The cockpit roof and forward dodger were designed as part of the yacht's integral lines, constructed of aluminum, with framed tempered glass dodger forward. The overall structure is immensely solid and will resist any weather onslaught.

Entry into boat interior is from the deck top lounge and cockpit area, just starboard side of the captain's station. To enter, descend stairs to the main salon completed in American Beech with teak and holly sole. All seating areas, elevated from walkway, unlike most salons of yachts this size, afford views out of this interior main salon to starboard and port sea or at anchor views above deck level. The overall effect upon entering the yacht is of modern opulence, comfort and light. The table being elevated means that one can enjoy the full spectacle of the views over the ocean or harbour during the day, which is one of the greatest improvements on boat building designs of recent years. The windows are created to provide light and a feeling of space. They are designed in a way as to maintain the overall strength and integrity of the yacht.

Directly starboard is the captain's chart table, office centre & electric panel, with a large, centrally located bar fridge adjacent and forward of this office centre that is flanked by two wide sofa type leather chairs.

From the main salon, stairs descend to the guest staterooms, beyond and above on the aft port salon wall, is a 33- inch Samsung flat screen TV, facing the full salon lounge areas. There is a state-of-the-arts Bose stereo system + a separate stereo system enabling dual and concurrent use of TV & stereo music for both the upper pilothouse lounge / main interior salon, as desired.

Forward of the main salon, is the galley and crew/pantry area. Starboard is the crew's dinette & lounge area, and a large pantry, with their own 32" flat screen Samsung TV above the descent through the main bulkhead door entry to the engine room. To port is the galley, with stove, refrigerator, freezer, spacious cabinets and counters. In keeping with the design demands of a fully crewed Superyacht, the galley was built to be the domain of the hosting crew, capable of providing surface areas and appliances necessary to provide with the needs of large dinner parties on board, safely and efficiently. This galley is nevertheless a lovely space for the owner and family to enjoy at all time. It is bright, well set-up, easy to use, and as with the rest of the yacht presenting in immaculate condition.

Walking forward from the galley through a watertight bulkhead, is the crew head & shower on the port side, with the washer/dryer equipment directly across. Forward of these, through another bulkhead, is the upper & lower 4 berths crew cabin. The upper berths are oversized and the design keeping with the quality and comfort shown throughout the boat. Should the boat be owned by a skipper/owner without the need for crew, this area would be perfect for guests, as contrarily to other yachts, which crew accommodations are often far less comfortable, and/or of a different design than the rest of the boat, Ke Ama II's accommodations remain undifferentiated in luxury and quality of fit out.

Going back aft to the main salon now, descending a few steps and passing through another watertight bulkhead is another series of cabins, with to begin with a 3 berths guest cabin, opposite another guest cabin with a double bed. Both cabins have their own ensuite head and showers and are fitted with their own air conditioning, quality bedding, reading lights and storage lockers.

Aft of the guest accommodations, through another watertight bulkhead, you enter the spacious owner's cabin. As expected from a yacht of this standard, this bright and cheerful cabin was fitted out to the outmost luxury and comfort. This very large and beautiful cabin occupies the whole width of the yacht. It is designed to be comfortable in all weather conditions, and offers an incredible amount of usable space and privacy. This cabin will accommodate the owners in luxury, with queen bed, lounge sofas, wardrobe closet with built-in safe, temperature control, and a large ensuite with head and separate shower. This cabin is also equipped with a surround-sound Bose stereo system, has its own large flat screen Samsung TV and audio-visual equipment.

Broker's Remarks:

Captain's comments aboard KE AMA II: 'This is one of the finest sailing performance cruising yachts I've had the pleasure to be aboard. She is strong and comfortable at sea and while sitting on the hook. She is easy to handle, safe and fast. Setting sails and reefing is very easy and handled by two people at the touch of the hydraulic controls. The large fully battened Specter mainsail is easily managed even in heavy weather.

Ke Ama II I presently located in New Zealand, North Island (Whangarei and the gateway to the Bay of Islands). Please do not hesitate to contact our friendly team at Nautilus Yacht Management PL at any time on +61420882296 if you require more information or wish to arrange for an inspection.
