An Invited Friend of The Harrison Butler Association
Built by David Hillyard in 1935



Kira : Grand Old Hillyard, Still Going Stron
Kira was up for sale in 2013 for £64,950. The price reflected her good condition and the large amount of money lavished upon her by her then owner, who'd had her for 16 years. She even has a bowthruster, the installation of which would have been a challenge on a wooden boat.
