Kaivita is a 2015 Alaska 43 now exclusively for sale with YOTI on Pittwater.
Launched in July 2015 in Ballina NSW after a 6-year build at the Ballina boatyard, Kaivita is a custom-built heavy displacement cruising yacht from the drawing table of world renowned yacht designer, Ted Brewer, from Canada.
The owner wanted a steel yacht with huge range under power and with a comfortable and easily managed sailing ability. Ted Brewer is very well known for his highly seaworthy designs and the "small ship" style of this vessel is what caught the eye of the owner. Such is the range of this vessel she can go from Sydney to Auckland under power alone.

The timbers used throughout are Celery Top pine trim and planking all varnished. The floor is Jarrah. All main surfaces are faired, corners coved and painted with 2 pack paint finish. Every piece of plywood used in the fit out was first edge saturated in Epoxy wood preserver and then painted with 2 coats of epoxy before being fitted into the boat.
The engine is a keel cooled marinized Isuzu 4JB1 - naturally aspirated making her easy to source parts, simple to service, reliable and highly fuel efficient.
The galley has a high quality Force 10 stainless steel gas stove and oven fitted. The refrigeration is from Ozefridge and is built in under the bench and runs off 12 volt or 240 volts.
