We have two wombats on here!?!?!?! oh lordy! Please help us! One from NA, the other from down under! oh lordy please help us!
Anyway, Saw a Kieri here in the Seattle area where I am. Thought it was a mid 80s Jeanneau initially until I asked over on the Jeanneau forum what boat it was, only to find out it was not a jeanneau! I got the impression is was reasonably run of the mill to slightly above ave. On par with a Waiquiez or a bit below. Not as low price point as bendy's, but above a Jeanneau.
As such, you would think a 48' boat would weather off shore useage no matter the brand, other than say a Morris M52 or equal style daysailer/weekender.
Check into a bit more if you can, I am thinking the company went out of business. but do not quote me on that. More than likely deck gear is Goiot, also a french company, but with a decent reputation on the other side of the pond.
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
