A very well equipped safe and solid boat that only requires fuel, water and provisions before starting an ocean voyage. All service work is up to date, in March 2016 all antifouling was sandblasted, the underwater area was inspected for signs of osmosis, then faired and filled as required and new antifouling was applied. The keel cooler was removed and cleaned allowing access for new antifouling. At the same time all oils and coolants were replaced in 3 engines. The stabilisers were fully serviced including removal of fins and replacement of lubrication oils.

This is a boat that can be handled by one person, given it's weight and deep underwater section the boat with a powerful engine and large propeller and hydraulic driven thrusters is easy to dock and is not easily blown about.

This is a boat for the serious offshore cruiser with a spirit of adventure. A boat that will look after you.
