The Cabins

We loved having four cabins.  Everyone had a space where they could go for some privacy, peace and quiet.  Each cabin includes huge amounts of storage space beneath each berth, shelves at the foot of each bed and lockers on both sides of the cabin.  Hatches above and on both the outside and inside walls let in tons of light and are great for letting in all that fresh air.  The starboard and port cabins are mirrors of each other.

The Heads

The two shower/head combos (one port/one starboard) make for comfortable living with a full crew aboard.  

Water Maker

We installed a high capacity water maker—30 gallons per hour!—with an installation that makes operation and maintenance easy.  A supply of additional filters and fluids is included.  

Power & Communications

We installed 4 brand new house batteries, 2 new engine starter batteries, and a Honda EU2000i Companion generator for reliable power, with quick charge times thanks to 2 in-line battery chargers. 

We replaced the original fridge (which used a high energy-consumption compressor) for a stainless steel, high capacity, 12V, energy efficient fridge.  We also installed a new VHF radio with AIS receiving capability and MMSI broadcasting capability (for emergency/distress broadcasting).  We replaced the mast-top VHF antennae and cable as well as the mast top wind indicator.  If we ever got into trouble, we knew help was only a radio-call away.

We installed a long-range WiFi booster to assure reliable internet connections from up to 1 mile off shore (connect as many devices as you like through the strong on-board hot spot).  We also configured our navigation system to be iPad compatible.  (Imagine using your chart plotter from anywhere on the boat!) 

The new 2014 18hp Tohatsu outboard, along with heavy duty chain and lock, can be attached to the tender of your choice. 

The Yanmar 3YM30 diesel engines were rebuilt and reinstalled right in front of us, to assure safe, reliable motoring and battery charging as needed.

Again, we sailed her safely and comfortably with our five children over 2,500 miles from St. Maarten to Manhattan.
