Yamaha 25 ft., 1977
This rare 1977 Yamaha sailboat has been lovingly restored and is in mint condition from top to bottom. Berthed in San Diego, "Kalahe" is a Pacific Ocean crossing veteran, coming from Kalae, HI to Southern California. She is a must see if you desire a flawless, reliable sailboat that is ready to cruise or race. Yamaha made sailboats for a short period of time and this 25' boat had an 8 man design/engineering team and it was years ahead of its time.
One of the unique aspects of the design is the placement of the Yanmar YSM8 8hp Diesel engine in the forward portion of the boat under the Vberth. It allows easy accessibility for all routine maintenance. This motor has been completely rebuilt and runs like new. It also looks new and the engine compartment is spotless!
