About Kittani

Kittani is a 46' (14.3m) Laurent Giles designed Carbineer Pilot House Ketch.
Carbineers are recognised as well built, solid, safe world cruisers.
She was built in 1978 (we believe) by Danny & Michael Lasky of Carbineer Yachts , Melbourne, Australia and launched in 1979. This is based on a small brass plaque fixed to the steering pedestal.

Carbineer Yachts built 16 vessels during their time in existence. Again, little information is available for research. (refer to Articles for some additional information)

The design was originally built by Moodys Yachts (UK) as a Carbineer. The same design was taken by the Melbourne company with minimum changes. Those familiar with the Salar 40 will recognise the similarities of the design. There were 2 principle models - Deck Saloon or Pilot House
