A new explorer yacht in construction: Kilkea

Kilkea: explorer yacht for all oceans

Kilkea is the latest project from Shackleton Superyachts & International Shipbuilders, and is set for launch later this year. An explorer yacht Designed for 30 days of autonomous cruising, this is a true explorer yacht with startling Bannenberg & Rowell exterior styling. Sleeping 36 guests and sporting a distinctive bow shape, the yacht will clearly take you to whichever challenging part of the ocean you choose to cruise to. She has also been certified for environmentally friendly operation, so will be equally adept at taking you to more tropical locations. A further focus of the yacht is on low fuel consumption.


A huge open deck space amidships includes a pool (there’s another inside), while the interior has been fashioned as an open-plan space that includes a golf range, a tennis court, an indoor garden, and a private Imax cinema. Other features include a submarine dock, a five-a-side football pitch, an underwater observation room, and a helideck with hangar. The details of the interior can be customized by her new owner.

The asking price is $62 millions via Edmiston.
