“I was going to code the boat and started some works as advised by the MCA Surveyor then changed my mind and decided to buy a larger coded vessel. I did everything required except service the existing lift raft and buy a second and not put smoke detectors in the cabins. so, she is close to codable!”
“I have documented servicing on board and all manuals and owner manual.
The current tender (4m Brig) is too large for the boat aesthetically but is easily lifted and very useful for 7/8 people.”
“I have owned her since last year and used her mostly this summer around the Balearics. She is capable of travelling long distance on one engine and is set up to do so and can cover 100nm on 200 litres. Her registry states 15 meters which passes in most marinas although the beam is correctly stated as 4.5m.”
