The Kestral 106 yacht, seen in the photos above and below has undergone successful sea trails. During the Kestral 106 sea trial, the yacht was joined by a pod of dolphins and a rainbow which is surely a good luck blessing for this newly launched superyacht. The yacht will be delivered soon and is currently for sale, suitable for both private ownership and as a charter yacht. She is a comfortable and spacious ocean cruiser that is easy to handle and capable of long distance voyages or entertaining friends when day sailing around coastal waters.

Following classic lines, this new Kestrel design reflects a balance between traditional sailing yachts of the past, with design refinements that are influenced by the latest sailing technology.

The Kestrel 106 yacht designed by Ron Holland Design is a large volume ocean cruising ketch capable of impressive sailing performance. Underwater lines are refined for high sailing performance capabilities and her large beam and superstructure volume allows an impressive level of interior space.

Both on-deck and interior arrangements present amenities that are more related to much longer sailing yachts than her 94ft length on deck. The superstructure and deck area of the S/Y Kestrel 106 is designed for a relaxed onboard lifestyle with a convertible cockpit. This is an adaptable space with sliding seating units for relaxing, dining and dancing. The sailing yacht Kestrel 106 is able to accommodate up to 10 guests in a 4 cabins including a full beam master cabin, a large double VIP cabin and two further cabins with additional pullman berths. The dining areas both inside and out can also comfortably seat ten guests.
