'Kia kaha' is a Maori phrase used by the people of New Zealand as an affirmation, meaning stay strong. It is the great name of this stellar example of the extremely popular Young 88 yacht design.

Some notable points.

Built by Roger Land Yachts.
Hull 135 of the 153 built.
In current one design class spec..
New mast and rigging installed in 2012 by Whale Spars and Sydney rigging.
Plenty of one design class and twilight sails in great condition.
Updated Harken traveller and mainsheet system.
New 2 blade Gori folding prop fitted in 2019.
Boom tent/boat cover.
Raymarine ST 60 wind, speed and depth instrumentation.
Current Category safety gear.

It's understandable why this great design is such a cult classic which still draws strong one design fleets in Australia and New Zealand. It's a beautiful boat to look at, it's fun to sail, the large cockpit with fully open transom was ahead of its time and the layout below deck has all you need for comfortable overnighting and weekends away with the family.

Kia Kaha is kept on a pen at the CYCA, in excellent condition, ready for a new owner to enjoy.
