    This is a cold molded wood boat that most naval architects believe to be stronger than a FRP constructed boat. Great care was exhibited during the construction of this yacht. Every piece of wood is completely encapsulated with expoxy. Therefore, this is a completely maintenance free yacht that should outlast any glass boat. Every hole drilled to mount hardware was coated with epoxy before the hardware was installed. This should prevent any decay in the case of water entering a fastener attachment point.

    This yacht is a true blue water cruiser that has never seen salt water. It was designed to be sink proof utilizing the following techniques:
    1. The basic hull is wood so it floats on its own.
    2. One inch foam insulates the hull from the water line up, providing additional floatation.
    3. Large airbags were scheduled for installation in the forward state room and the aft master suite to be inflated with scuba tanks. This system has not yet been installed, but would be required to render the yacht completely sink proof.
    4. In case a wood hull would be holed, it can be easily patched by screwing a correct size piece of ¼” plywood to the hull exterior.
    Who wants be be floating around the ocean in a life raft when all their needed food, water, tools, radios and medical supplies are on board the yacht.

    This yacht has a pilothouse helm and a helm in the cockpit both equipped with 8” or 12” Furuno 3D MFD’s.

    The pilot house has ½” thick tempered glass to prevent damage when a boarding wave crashes aboard. There are also provisions made for adding 3/8” plexiglass storm panels for emergencies. The frames and hardware for mounting these panels are include but not the plexiglass.

    The forward 1/3 of this yacht has never been used and is in new condition. The water has never been turned on to the forward head or washing machine. Please note: this is a washing machine and not the very unreliable washer/dryer combo.

    This yacht contains all Furuno electronics except the forward looking sonar. Most commercial fishermen have rated Furuno as the best most dependable equipment on the market.

    This yacht has the very powerful and dependable Telflex hydraulic steering system along with the Furuno autopilot. A new telflex hydraulic ram is also carried on board for a backup system.

    There is a 4.5 cu. ft. refrigerator and a 6 cu. ft. freezer aboard.

    There is a separate walk in shower in the master suite with a bench seat.

    A steel bar is installed from the aft of the keel to the forward end of the skeg. This is to protect the prop from lobster pot warps during night time ocean navigation.

    The cockpit helm is designed to be easy to remove to provide for more cockpit room when at anchor and to make it much more difficult for thieves to steal the yacht while one is onshore.

    Both heads utilize push button Lavac vacu-flush toilets using one quart of potable water per flush. These are the most dependable trouble free toilets on the market. The yacht carries 148 gals. of potable water.
