Owner's Comments

The boat is in a very good condition HOWEVER, there are some know issues that need to be addressed by the next owner. Other than that the inside needs to be refinished (panels / liners, settee etc), these are the problems / that I know of:


-        The hull paint is in fair condition. There are some parts where the blue paint is staring to peel, especially at the stbd side need to diesel filling point. When filling diesel, it easily over flows when the tank is full. The paint probably reacted to this

-        The charge function of the Charger / Inverter doesn’t work properly; This may have to do with the fact that the charger is too heavy for the circuit at the marine and the Generator

-        Not all gauges of the generator are working

-        Anchor winch footswitches need to be replaced
