Kalihi ("on the water") is a striking yacht with handsome lines and a well-proportioned layout. It is a style that is well suited to cruising our waters with great vistas all around, which also means superb visibility all around for operator.

This Symbol 55 was originally commissioned new for an Oregon owner, and was kept on the Columbia River. In 2004, these current owners purchased her and after eighteen years of memorable and reliable cruising, Kalihi is finally ready for new owners to continue her coastal adventures.

She is an aspirational yacht that has been loved and babied, properly maintained and updated, protected in a boat house at RVYC, and is in wonderful condition throughout her interior, exterior, and machinery space. She awaits your inspection, and your cruising plans!
