The current owner has raised the guard rail around the boat due to mobility problems but has retained all original stanchions, so she could be returned to standard condition if required.
In 2017 on the surveyors recommendation some small superficial blisters were ground out and filled with epoxy, the hull then received 5 coats of Epoxy barrier, 1 coat of primer and 3 coat of antifouling. Also during the current owners tenure a 25 kg Rocna anchor and 75 metres of calibrated chain + spare anchor has been added. He has replaced two bilge pumps with an automated system, lightened the saloon with reflective panels, Replaced the port head pump ( starboard head and pump had already been replaced ) and replaced sea water foot pump in the galley,

decks repainted and cabin sole varnished.
The engine whilst having run around 12,000 Hours in total has only done 600 hours since a major rebuild, it starts first time, sounds good and there is no excessive smoke or vibration.
