KINSHIP is a well loved, well-maintained cruiser, designed by Robert Perry. With a long waterline and a fairly narrow beam forward, she is fast and easy to single-hand. Hull number 19 of just over 50 boats built KINSHIP is one of the preferred mid production models. She was built in 1998 in St Catharines, Ontario by Saga Marine. KINSHIP is a proven passage maker and is fully equipped with all of the gear required for another offshore adventure. Some of her notable features include:
- Custom Arch with davits
- Recent life raft in certification
- Wind, solar, hydro electrical generators
- Integrated electronics
- Custom canvas
Please view the full specs tab on the next page for full vessel details. Her replacement cost far exceeds her asking price and a careful reading of the listing will impress even the most experienced offshore sailors. The Saga 43 is a perfect couples cruiser and was designed for short handed sailing. If you are considering a passage south this fall KINSHIP should be first on your list.

A workroom is located forward with a work bench and vice to starboard with custom storage lockers opposite. There is a storage locker forward with chain locker access. The master cabin is located just aft of the work room. It features a Pullman berth with locker storage opposite. Storage space is exceptional. The water maker is under the berth. This stateroom has two opening ports, one overhead hatch, and two electric fans. There are four dorade boxes with vents on deck.
The main salon is bright and airy with several opening ports and hatches. The salon features opposing settees with lee cloths that make excellent sea berths for even the tallest of sailors. The nav desk is located to starboard and is aft facing which makes communication between the helmsperson and navigator efficient and accurate. 12v fans are located throughout the vessel.
The L shaped galley is located to starboard and features a Force 10 stove and a 12v Seafrost refrigerator and freezer each with their own dedicated thermostats and compressors. The iceboxes have upgraded insulation. A microwave is located above the ice boxes.
The head with separate shower stall is located opposite of the galley. The head space is quite large and utilizes an ingenious polycarbonate shower door.
The aft cabin is located to port and is wide enough for shorter crew to sleep athwart-ships thanks to the fact that the berth extends under the cockpit sole. There is a lee cloth that allows the area under the cockpit to be separated from the widest part of the berth. The battery bank is located under the berth.
KINSHIP has had two owners during her life each of whom have improved her equipment and design at a cost exceeding her asking price. She has participated in the ARC and Carribean 1500 rallies and is ready to go again. KINSHIP has seen regular and preventative maintenance and everything from her life raft to watermaker are in spec and working perfectly. This Saga 43 is ready for another adventure and if you looking to spend the winter in the Carribean sunshine look no further. Highly recommended.
