Your Day on the Water just got better!

“SOLEIL” matches sailing performance to the pleasure of on-board comfort. She’s lively and fast. Escape for a day, a weekend or more.

Kirie sailboats are known for their solid, high quality construction, comfortable accommodations belowdecks and a seakindly motion.  The interior is light-colored elm with fabric overhead, multiple opening hatches, and a light teak look cabin sole.  “Soleil” has the much brighter feel of newer designs.

The forward cabin has a double vee berth w/filler cushion, lockers, port & starboard shelves w/fiddle rails, and reading light.

The double entry head is to port with a Groco manual head & holding tank, sink, pressure water, molded counter top, mirror, handheld shower, teak shower grate, and independent shower sump pump, cabinet, storage shelves, and deck hatch.

The salon’s U shaped dinette to port makes a comfortable double berth with storage behind and outboard.  The centerline folding table can seat six.  The starboard settee also has storage behind and outboard and can serve as a single berth.  Good light and ventilation are provided by long fixed ports, solar vents, port & starboard cabin vans, multiple deck hatches, and the companionway with its proper drop boards.  The interior grab rails make movement below decks safe and secure in a seaway.

The L-shaped galley to port has storage galore, double stainless steel sinks near center line with hot and cold pressure water, a Raritan 6 gallon, 110v AC/engine heated hot water heater, a large, insulated ice box that has been converted to Frigoboat 110AC refrigeration w/keel cooler, a gimbaled, two burner Eno propane stove with oven.

The forward facing navigation station is to starboard across from the galley.  There are two drawers under the opening chart table with more storage and a navigation night reading light.

Matching port and starboard aft quarter cabins have double berths, outboard shelves, lockers, drawers, fixed hull ports and opening foot well ports.
