A hydraulic deck crane [heavy duty] has been fitted under the current ownership
Remarks  Minerva in the past two years has been painted top to botom. Two pack from the hull up, and single pack on the hull.
Roll chocks have been fitted to the hull, which makes the boat very comfortable at rest, and if conditions get too bad there are fish for stabilising whilst under way.

An experienced eye will also notice that this hull design is easily driven, and not a fuel guzzler. Also the draft is a very sensible 5 ft 6 inch max which makes the boat more user friendly.

Minerva is now a turn key situation and ready to go to sea.
