About KILORAN

Operating in the West Mediterranean and the Caribbean

Kiloran was launched in September 2014 for the Southampton Boat Show, she has had light owner use the first year and from May 2016 she will be offered for charter in Sardinia & Corsica. Kiloran is named after a bay on the Island of Colonsay, West of Scotland which is the owner's family's favourite place. Discovery Yachts was founded in 1998 and set out to create the world’s most perfect blue-water cruising yachts designed to take two people around the world on the ultimate journey of discovery. 

Kiloran is the first of the Mk II models the hull & mast were kept the same as the original 55 and flush hatches have been introduced along with a sleeker deckhouse design giving the windows a more modern wraparound look, enhancing the already excellent view from the saloon. Port lights have also been enlarged to make the interior even airier and the saloon layout has been opened up. Kiloran is fitted with a contemporary interior; redesigned to allow maximum daylight exposure and increase comfort along with style. With a well ventilated and practically designed galley, a raised and spacious saloon, a king-size main cabin, a double cabin, 2 generous single bunk berths and 2 modern shower rooms.
