1981 Savage Oceanic 42 now for sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.

Kairos is a beautiful example of Jack Savage’s centre-cockpit bluewater cruising masterpiece the Oceanic 42. Originally drawn as his own boat, the design proved so popular that 53 were launched. A remarkable record for an Australian designed and built yacht of this size.

Launched in 1981, Kairos is an Australian Registered Ship and has comfortably and safely cruised Tasmania, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji with her diesel mechanic owner and his young family. In all they lived aboard her for 6 years but now being based in Europe it is time for Kairos to find some new travel companions.

In 2014 she was fitted with a new 4-cylinder Volvo Penta D2 55hp diesel driving though a saildrive with a 3 blade Volvo folding prop.

She has a solid autopilot, plus a wind vane self-steering system, double headsails on furlers, a strong and well-made 2017 mainsail, plus an MPS.

She has the factory hard dodger, and excellent awnings to protect you from the sun.

She holds 800 litres of fresh water plus she has a Spectra watermaker, and solar panels on a custom arch aft.

The owners’ double cabin and ensuite are aft, plus there is a double guest cabin forward with a second bathroom.

Kairos has been there and done that, and is practically ready to provision up and sail away all over again.
