Kialoa II - 74' Sparkman & Stephens/Yachting Dynamics 1964

Here is the beautiful classic A rater from the boards of Sparkman & Stephens, Kialoa II, design 1713.  She was built of aluminum by Yacht Dynamics of Harbor City, California and launched in 1964.

Here is a photo sequence from the time of her launch.

The following is a description of her interior arrangement.  Her interior layout has been altered slightly from the original plans.  The original general arrangement can be found by following the link to the blog posting about this design by clicking here.  Here's a sketch of the current arrangement.

The large forepeak contains the chain locker and storage space for sails, lines and other equipment. A large hatch gives access to the deck.  The forward stateroom has a double berth to port and a single to starboard,  entrance to the port head with shower, two large lockers for hanging clothes, 5 drawers in the bureau, and 16 drawers under the bunks. A door leads aft to a passageway by the mast.

The saloon has a large teak dining table with drop sides which seats a maximum of 10. There are 4 berths, two port and two starboard. The lower settees pull out to form 29" wide bunks, one 6"-4" long, the other over 7' long. The upper quarter berths are 26" wide and 6"-4" long. There are two hanging lockers, one on each side, a bureau with 4 drawers, and 9 drawers under the bunks. Life jackets and ships spares are stowed under the upper bunks. A door opposite the mast section leads to the forward starboard head.

The next compartment aft has the galley to port, with a gimbaled serving counter, a three burner gimbaled propane range, two refrigerator/freezer boxes, electric toaster and blender and numerous drawers and cabinets. On the starboard side there is a settee and an upper bunk similar to those in the saloon. There are 9 drawers for storage on this side.

The third head, with shower, is just aft of the settee and bunk. The main propulsion and generator engines are located under the cabin sole.  The deckhouse is reached by climbing 3 steps, which pull out for access to the machinery area below. The navigation table, with drawers for charts and books, is on the port side forward, along with the electronic instruments.

The main ship electrical control panel is located in the passagway leading to this compartment. On the starboard side there is a double bunk, 55" width by 6' 4" length and a pilot berth, 5' 10" length, on the port side.

Aft by the hatch is an electrical panel for engine control, navigation and deck illumination, and alarm and status functions.  The area under the deckhouse contains the battery chargers, refrigeration equipment, bilge pumps, storage batteries, watermaker, dive compressors, diesel fuel system, emergency bilge pump and electric generator, and ships spares and tools.  Aft of the deckhouse, under the cockpit, is a small workshop, tool chest, steering system and autopilot, and storage.

Aft of the cockpit the lazarette is accessed through two hatches and is used for storage of fenders, mooring lines and garbage.
