Kia Ora has proven to be a great long range trawler-cruiser. Owned and lived aboard part time for 15 years by her previous owners. Engines, generator and transmissions have been serviced regularly. Ocean Alexander put a premium on an abundant amount of built-in storage throughout the vessel unlike any other vessel this size. Just about everything with a cushion on it has storage below. Guests in the forward V-berth cabin for a week or weekend, will have their own head and shower opposite the galley. The full beam width owners cabin is completely aft, allowing complete privacy for everyone.
The aft deck is large and will compliment a large group of friends for entertaining. A great area for reading the paper and coffee in the morning, sunsets and cocktails in the evening. 

Previous owners spent most of there time every summer cruising the Bahamas from the Northern Abacos down to Georgetown. In latter years, it has been mostly the Abacos, they enjoyed the most. In between, they have gone across Lake Okeechobee and up the West coast of Florida and down to the Florida Keys. Cruised the beautiful St. Johns River on several occasions, seeing lots of wildlife and meeting many wonderful friends. This is a great boat for the ICW and exploring the Chesapeake Bay. You  could also do the Great Loop route in comfort. Occasionally, friends would spend a month at a time on the boat with them. KIA ORA is a great boat for entertaining, with its ample room and storage, allowing guests to relax and enjoy.
