KAISOSI is the best equipped and most effectively customized Admiral Executive 40 ever built.
The builder's concept was to build a top tier fully equipped boat instead of building a base catamaran and adding options, but KAISOSI's owners ordered her upgraded even above the factory specifications. After an extended shakedown cruise, and with the help of designer Angelo Lavranos, the hulls were extended over 3 feet to increase speed and load carrying capacity. The keels were lengthened and enlarged to improve strength and performance, and the rudders were streamlined to improve balance and responsiveness.
The owners have spared no expense to make KAISOSI a safe, comfortable, self sufficient, and easy to handle world cruising catamaran.
This boat has been home for the owners since new, and has taken them from the African coast to South America, the Amazon River, French Guyana, Trinidad, Eastern Caribbean and the Bahamas.
Kaisosi's extended sugar scoops provide a safe and stable platform for boarding the boat, as well as for fishing and diving. Up the transom steps, the full width aft platform provides access to the cockpit through a walk through cutout on the aft coaming. The cockpit features a full hardtop with all season enclosure, double helm station to starboard with excellent visibility, and comfortable cockpit seating to port with a dining table for 8.
Stepping through the sliding glass bridgedeck cabin doors, the spacious galley is forward to port. The cooks have a panoramic view in all directions and an amazing amount of working surface and storage. Side by side front opening isotherm fridge and freezer are augmented by an additional isotherm fridge in the port hull. The built-in 3 burner range top has a flip up glass top that serves as a backsplash, and a double stainless steel sink makes for easy cleanup. The saloon settee and dining table are to starboard. The rectangular settee will seat a crowd and the high back seating ergonomics provide for comfortable lounging. The interior nav station and ship's electric panels are located aft and opposite the settee.
The starboard owner's hull features a fore and aft queen berth stateroom in the aft quarter, and a spacious head with separate shower and electric toilet forward. The companionway provides multiple lockers for cruising stores.
The port hull features guest double staterooms fore and aft and a guest head with shower outboard in the companionway. Opposite the head are the laundry, more storage lockers, and equipment access.
Kaisosi's interior joinery is finished in exotic African Wenge wood and speckle coat black granite countertops which give a warm and contemporary feel to the interior. This is undoubtably the most attractive Admiral Executive ever produced.
