KIUROS has to be the freshest, most beautifully maintained and renovated Little Harbor 58 to hit the brokerage market. Lovingly maintained to the highest standards by her skipper for the past eleven years, her systems and equipment have been continuously updated. A magnificent shoal-draft, center cockpit, offshore sailing yacht, KIUROS is truly a rare offering.
Owner’s cabin aft with private companionway to owner’s aft cockpit, plus two guest staterooms forward.
KIUROS has three generous staterooms, owner’s cabin aft and two double guest cabins forward. The joinery below decks is classic Little Harbor with beautifully varnished teak, finished to a smooth, grain-filled surface. The below decks joinery is highly detailed with raised-panel doors and locker fronts. Lovely fiddles and edgings create a beautiful and masterfully executed nautical ambiance.
The teak and holly cabin sole is built of separate removable floorboards, providing unusually easy access to tank tops, seacocks and machinery. Lock-in type handles are installed with each section. Construction is of solid 3/8” alternating teak and holly laid over a lightweight core material for long-term stability.
The forward guest stateroom is particularly generous with a V-berth that is 9’-6” wide at the head and converts into a most comfortable double. Ample storage is provided by way of drawers, hanging locker and lockers running along the hull deck joint. Aft and to port is the second guest stateroom. This stateroom has a double lower berth with pull-out upper that can be lowered to create a settee using the lower berth. Again, generous lockers and drawers provide good storage.
To starboard is a full head with vanity, stall shower, good locker space and two doors providing either direct access from the main salon or private access from the forward stateroom.
The main salon is one of KIUROS’s calling cards and features Little Harbor hull ports along with stainless opening ports in the cabin trunk. The salon is spacious and comfortable, with a specially designed, contoured L-shaped settee to port with a beautifully crafted drop-leaf dining table. The upholstery is cream leather.
On centerline, KIUROS has seating for two on an island settee. The island settee is unique in that the back rest is reversible. It can serve as a backrest for seating, facing either to port for purposes of dining at the dining table, or shift to the opposite side of the settee to serve as an additional small couch for the coffee table and L-shaped settee to starboard. The starboard L-shaped settee is built so that it may be converted to a wide berth for extra sleeping accommodations.
KIUROS’s main salon is truly exceptional. The detail and design allow it to feel cozy, yet at the same time be light and airy. She is tastefully equipped with Cantalupi chrome-plated brass light fixtures. Ventilation is exceptional with stainless cowl vents, overhead hatches and opening stainless port lights. With her built-in fixed hull ports and cabin ports above, one has a view of the outside world from the salon, whether seated or standing.
Adjacent to the companionway and after the salon is a U-shaped galley. The galley is equipped with a Seaward Princess stove, new Frigoboat water-cooled DC system for double-door fridge and and double-door freezer. The fridge is both top and side loading, generous in size and has stainless shelves and liners. The galley is beautifully detailed with locker space below and above the counters. There is good ventilation from dorade ventilators, opening deck hatch and ports. There is an eye-level microwave. The galley is nicely positioned one step down from the salon and allows a sense of privacy for food prep in the galley, yet the person in the galley is not divorced from conversation in the salon.

Across the salon to port is the navigation station. The navigators' desk faces aft so that when seated at the table one can easily communicate through the companionway with those in the cockpit. The Nav equipment has been upgraded with the latest Garmin electronics linked to the cockpit.
The master stateroom is aft and can be accessed from the private aft cockpit or on the port side from the nav area/bar/freezer area. This cabin contains ample drawers and lockers, safe, two hull ports, plus four opening stainless steel ports in the cabin trunk. There is a queen-sized berth to port with a custom memory foam mattress with settee/pilot berth opposite. Hanging lockers are on port and centerline. To starboard is the owner's head with a separate stall shower and substantial drawer storage.

Galley and head countertops are granite-colored Corian inlaid with a darker Corian outlining the edges. All other countertops in the boat are teak with a holly inlay. Berth and seat tops are Formica-lined with access to storage below through multiple lift-up openings.
All water and fuel tanks are below cabin sole level, providing extensive storage under seats and furniture throughout the interior. Canvas lee cloths are installed for all berths. Berth mattresses are 5" thick, using laminated variable density foam for added comfort. Ample shelving, bookshelves and handholds are provided throughout the interior.
The bilges are faired and finished with gray Gelcoat.
The main cockpit is large and functional, designed for easy entrance/exit port and starboard without climbing over coaming. A custom-designed molded FRP steering pedestal houses all engine instrumentation, sail handling functions and sailing instruments for easy access by helmsman, as are all deck winches. A steering compass and Garmin GPS 5008 are installed on the steering pedestal; a solid teak table with drop leaves installed ahead of the pedestal includes provision for insulated built-in deck cooler. Built-in lockers for storage of rope tails outside of cockpit.
The hull is molded in FRP with 3/4" Airex foam core for added strength and sound/thermal insulation. Vinylester resin is used on the exterior skins for the highest possible resistance to water osmosis, plus epoxy bottom coating with lnterlux 2000 system.
The centerboard is molded FRP with bronze protective shoe in leading edge and solid FRP around pin area. The centerboard has a highly efficient foil shape and is filled with structural putty and lead ballast to provide negative buoyancy. Centerboard is raised hydraulically via the Navtec panel in the cockpit. The centerboard trunk is molded FRP. Centerboard configuration offers minimum draft of 5’-2” with board up and maximum draft of 12’ with board down.
The balanced spade rudder is molded FRP with 5" stainless steel rudderstock. Rudder blade molded around stainless steel frame welded to rudderstock. Rudderstock supported by upper bearing (Harken, new, 2013) and lower Duromax bearing. A bronze stuffing box is provided with Teflon-impregnated packing. A retractable rudder blade, with 5'2" draft up and 7'6" draft extended, pivots up and down to provide excellent rudder shape without sacrificing KIUROS’ unusually shoal draft with centerboard up.
All ballast is lead cast in place and fully encapsulated by the fiberglass hull and keel. The top of the lead is covered with approximately ½” solid FRP.
All structural bulkheads are bonded to the hull and deck with FRP and Airex foam spacers. Floor beams are mahogany, interlocked and bonded to hull for rigid and durable support of cabin sole. FRP fuel and water tanks integral to the hull, for additional stiffness to hull laminate and to use the maximum amount of volume available. All tanks fully baffled with ample inspection ports. Water tanks are coated with clear Gelcoat. Chainplates are 316 stainless flat bar weldments thru-bolted to reinforced FRP attached to hull. Stainless mast step ¼” thickness, with limber holes and provision for 3" of fore and aft adjustment. FRP engine bed with steel reinforcement, bonded directly to hull.
The deck is constructed of FRP with Divinycell H-80 foam core for strength and stiffness. In areas where deck equipment is installed, core is replaced with Divinycell H-200 high-density foam. Cockpit sides and coaming are solid fiberglass. Deck flange is solid glass, approximately 3/8" thickness. The deck is bonded and bolted down with epoxy putty to the inboard angled hull flange with 5/16" bolts on 8" centers. Additional fastenings are provided with teak toe rail thru-bolted on 8" centers. All deck hatch landings are molded in FRP. The hull was painted Awlgrip White in 2006. The housetop and non-skid were Awlgripped Eggshell White to match hull in 2006.

ENGINE / MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT
Power is provided by a 140 hp Lugger L6414D fresh water-cooled diesel. The engine is fitted with twin alternators for battery charging with VDO instruments for tachometer; 2 amp meters; volt meter; low oil pressure alarm and high water temperate alarm. The wet exhaust system includes a water-lift type muffler, anti-siphon break and stern riser with discharge at transom. Engine controlled via electric on/off switch and Kobelt single-lever shift and throttle controls. Engine start is via single 200-amp hour battery. In case of low voltage, an emergency start switch paralleling all house batteries to the starting circuit is provided.
The main engine turns a 27" diameter Max Prop Ecowind feathering 4-blade propeller (new 2012) connected to the engine by a 1 34" diameter Aquamet stainless shaft. The Maxprop Ecowind not only has negligible drag but automatically adjusts blade pitch to sea conditions, giving approx 30% better fuel economy than the standard Max Prop. Propeller thrust is absorbed by a thrust bearing secured to a structural bulkhead. A Scatra flexible engine coupler connects the thrust bearing to the engine, allowing for installation on flexible mounts to eliminate engine vibration. A "bellows" type stuffing box is provided for the propeller shaft for maintenance-free operation. The engine room is insulated with a foam/lead sandwich providing a total thickness of 3". The engine room is extremely well insulated and machinery noise throughout the boat is minimal. Engine access is via removable side doors in the passageway aft, the galley, aft cabin and head. The engine room has 12-volt lighting and twin fans for air intake and discharge. To facilitate major engine work, the entire front section of the engine room is removable for easy access.
