Kaleo Is For Sale

Designed by Ted Brewer and Robert Walstrom, the ALOHA 34 was built in Whitby, Ontario, Canada by Ouyang Boatworks.

Kaleo is expertly outfitted for cruising, having just returned from an extended cruise from the Texas Gulf Coast, throughout the Bahamas as far south as the remote Jumentos, and is now currently on the hard in Annapolis, MD.

Kaleo is offered through Annapolis Yacht Sales. Please see the Yacht World listing or call Paul Rosen at 410-703-7367.

The ALOHA 34 is a comfortable, reasonably fast cruising sailing yacht, very beamy with a long waterline and very generous accommodations. The sail plan provides good drive and the deck is uncluttered. High quality fiberglass construction combined with a large modified fin keel and skeg-protected rudder makes this vessel a good performer with exceptional offshore capabilities. The slotted toe rails are aluminum, grab rails are teak and the companionway above the bridge deck is slightly offset with teak drop boards as well as new custom teak companionway doors. A spacious T-shaped cockpit contains a shallow locker to starboard and a deep locker to port providing access to the back of the diesel engine, the transmission and the fuel system. A rope/anchor locker is located on the foredeck just aft of a bow roller, which allows permanent ready-to-drop storage of the anchor. An electrical windlass makes anchor management that much easier.

The interior is traditional with liberal use of teak. There are ten opening ports and three overhead hatches allowing liberal ventilation. A bulkhead mounted fold down dinette table leaves the main cabin with ample seating for meals when down and open space when up.  At least 6′ 3″ headroom extends all the way forward into the V-berth. The head, with hot and cold pressure water, shower and a teak grating on the sole, has access doors from both the main cabin and the forward cabin. Opposite the head is a hanging locker and recesses for storage of clothing. The U-shaped galley to port, near the companionway, includes a stove with oven, deep double stainless steel sink and commodious refrigerator. Opposite, on the starboard side, is a forward facing nav station with large working surface and the quarter berth. The companionway stairs can be removed for easy access to the front of the engine. There is amazing storage throughout the boat and the interior volume of this vessel is quite striking.

Kaleo left the Gulf Coast in 2010 and prior to departure all systems were evaluated and refit as needed. Significant details of the refit are listed in relevant sections below.

The Aloha 34 also has an active owners network.

Here are a few photos of Kaleo.

    Is this boat still for sale?

  2. Hi Don,

    Thanks for the note. Kaleo is still for sale and we just dropped the price for the Annapolis Boat Show. All the details are on the Yacht World listing. I’m also happy to answer any questions you might have.

    Christie & Matt
    This is very hard. I really like your boat S/V Kaleo, really like her. But I can’t get to Annapolis until late next month ( At the latest, I am trying for earlier but can’t promise anything). Just going over what you have listed here I can see (if it all works) that it has everything I could want. I have spoken with Paul at Annapolis Yacht Sales and he tells me all she really needs is a bottom job and she’s ready for an extended cruise. Everything I hear is great, but you know the internet, don’t trust anything you don’t see. This is a big step, and I don’t want to lose the opportunity. I have the money in the bank to cash for Kaleo, and if I do buy her it will be a cash deal. I would like to offer a deposit of $1000 USD, non-refundable after December 1, 2011, against a hold on the boat until that time. The final price of the boat being negotiable after a full survey. Deposit to be applied to final purchase price.

    Please let me know if this is agreeable to you.
    Thank you
    Don Bruce
