s/v Kairos

Kairos A Greek word that roughly translated means: 

The brief moment in time when God places your destiny 
before you, and if you seize it with force, the gates
 of heaven will be opened to the dreams of your heart.

Kairos is a superbly crafted sailing vessel designed by Robert Perry who is widely acknowledged as one of the world's most talented marine architects. The Tayana is the culmination of Perry's decades of experience and talent and caps a career of designing and building great blue water sailing craft. 

Tayanas are tanks. It's displacement is 36,000 pounds with 12,500 pounds of ballast in the keel and a mast that towers 70 feet above the waterline the vessel can power through the roughest seas. Kairos loves 30 knot winds.

For those souls who are destined to go to sea there can be no compromise in the choice of vessel. Our lives depend upon the strength and performance of the craft and we know that it is inevitable that we will face winds and waves that will make us pray. Our supplications, then, will be for our own strength to hold; the strength of the Tayana is proven. It is we who are the weak link in the tussle between ship and sea. It is often said that the vessle can take more than you.

 The galley is spacious and is fully equipped.

Kairos is a very comfortable vessel, has everything, and is beautiful. She will take us safely on our adventure.
