Keel laid in 2003 and boat commissioned in 2006. Designed by our merchant marine client for his own use and built in grade 43A steel 10 x 8 x 6 x 4. Tankage: 1 steel (6mm) white diesel tank for propulsion 1365 litres. 1 steel red diesel tank 750 litres for heating & generator. 1 stainless fresh water tank 1000 litres. 1 steel holding tank 250 litres.
Water can be obtained from shore supply or complete autonomy from onboard filtering and purification system including 5 mechanical filters plus UV treatment and reverse osmosis for drinking quality water. Steel wheelhouse raises & lowers electrically to reduce air-draught to just 2.64m. Conceived as a coast capable vessel she crossed the North Sea under her own steam and found her way to the Canal du Midi where she has enjoyed the sun ever since. Spray foam insulation to the waterline. Back-up systems and built in redundancy show the professional background of our designer. Last out of the water in September 2015 when anodes were replaced and the bottom was redone in Jotul epoxy. Topsides repainted in Dacrolyte!
