She spent a nice 6 years in charter, professionally-maintained (mechanically & cosmetically) in the BVI.
Cosmetic damage by Hurricane Irma, repaired perfectly & electronics updated 2018.

She has international CE designation (10 in open seas, 25 inshore) with crush zones, elevated electronics, redundant systems, life boat, overbuilt everywhere.

Volvo Penta upgraded D6 330hp diesels, about 2,100 hours each. Northern Lights 16kw generator about 13,000 hours. All three diesels just professionally serviced.

Volvo Easy Connect just installed, for better diagnostics & bluetooth connection. (We were even able to get Volvo's "Easy Connect" to actually connect!)

Raymarine Axiom MFD.
Just replaced the Raymarine VHF radio, which inexplicably failed, with a new, redundant system. This new system from another manufacturer includes separate coax & a triband antenna as well.

Raymarine's autopilot also inexplicably failed. Parts for replacement (including a new compass, for some reason) have arrived, waiting on install.

New Poynteng 4G marine antenna installed on mast, wired to 1G hotspot. Works great. Up to 10 people at a time can live-stream, up to about 10 miles offshore.

Just installed marine HDTV 19" antenna, also fast-charge ports for 4 devices.

Great multi-zone bluetooth Fusion stereo system. Neat, motor-retracting Vizio TV with USB for "smart TV" capability, game stations, downloaded movies. Also goes great with the new Hotspot & 4G connectivity.

Freezer & 2 refrigerators (Vitrifrigo).

Upgraded Spectra water maker: Newport 1000 Mk II’ reverse osmosis 220-v water maker (approximately 30 GPH) + ‘Spectra MPC-5000’ remote control panel.
Dry showers - 4 inside, one per berth, plus one exterior shower on swim platform.
Flow-through hatch design, wind comes through the center (thanks to front & rear doors), & through each hull. Nice & breezy at anchor.

Designed to sit for days without running a generator (unless you want AC, stoves or watermaker) with 5 massive ‘Power King 8D’ 245Ah AGM batteries (3 separate starter batteries as well)

Unique & elegant indoor steps to flybridge. Also steps on bow, going forward.

"Real" air conditioning system (heat & cool both) 48,000 BTU ‘Condaria / Dometic chiller system, just serviced.

Plus 4 x 3 920 BTU air handlers (one in each cabin) - she can actually beat the sticky-humid Summer here - she can definitely more-than-handle any heat, anywhere!
Victron Energy Multiplus’ 3000W inverter / 120A charger, 110 outlets throughout.
Electric Kenyon grill, also electric BBQ grill on flybridge, with a sink up there. Coverered flybridge is about 11x17, plus the helm & plus sunpad.
Electric winch for overhead dinghy, drops in right in the water. Beneath that is a 2nd system, hydraulic, for sea-do's, or dingys, or just chairs or hammocks. It drops to just below water level. Makes a great scuba platform.

We added even more storage, to a boat already famous for it. We replaced & upgraded systems all over the boat, such as the entire bilge system & the charging.

Ceramic coated salon glass. Very nice.
Fresh water capacity 200 gallons. Diesel capacity about 350 gallons, plus a reserve (for the generator) of another 100, & a fuel transfer system.
Max draft 3.5 feet, top speed about 18kts, cruise (on plane) at 15kts burning about 28 GPH (total), economical cruise at 8kts (off plane), at about 4 kts at which point the range extends to 900 miles, or you can even "put-put" trawl with only one motor for even more range.
Easy to handle with the wide-spaced motors. Do not need bow thrusters.
