This incredible custom built Kirby Marine NAIAD 13.5 was designed with a specific purpose in mind, to comfortably cruise to the Abrolhos Islands in any weather. This is his second large volume NAIAD and a more refined and accommodating vessel this time around. No thought was left unchecked and the result is a true all-rounder that ticks a huge number of boxes and applies itself to a great range of boating styles and uses.
All Kirby NAIADs are constructed to an extremely high standard and will impress the most discerning purchasers. This particular build has a fully foam filled hull forward of the engine room bulkhead. "Southern Cross" has an immense list of specifications and her replacment cost today would be well over $1 million.
Powered by ever reliable Yanmar V8 370HP diesels on Yanmar legs, she will reach top speeds around 36 knots laden. An economical passage-making cruise speed of 30 knots is adopted by the owner, allowing him a prompt and comfortable journey to and from the Islands. This vessel was one of the first of its kind to be optioned with the Yanmar joystick piloting, making docking a breeze.
The spacious wheelhouse includes a galley, dinette, dual Waeco fridge set up, twin V berth bunk and domestic reverse cycle air conditioning.
At the helm you will find two high-end Ullman suspension bucket seats, the best available in the world. Twin Raymarine hybridtouch screens provide the skipper with every function necessary, including a GPS plotter, sounder, radar, autopilot, CCTV and engine management read outs. Forward raked windows ensure there is little glare, reduced heat and less refraction of light, a must have when navigating shallow waters.
The spacious aft deck makes for an excellent fishing platform and entertaining area, with an integrated lounge built on the fully padded engine cover. The head and shower are housed to starboard and accessed from the cockpit.
