KSS 54

For reasons that we have never been able to explain, 50~54 ft. is a length that has attracted more clients than any other at sizes over 40 ft. We had a great start with Legs of Mann 1V for Nick Keig quite a few years ago and a dozen different versions have taken to the water since.

The first was built by Marilyn and Don Logan in New Zealand and available for charter in Bay of Islands. It featured even in an episode of "Bachelor" series.
