Winter upgrade

The yacht went through a major refit in 2014 in preparation for it's trip to the Caribbean. The keel was removed and the hull extensively strengthened especially below the mast step. The insides were removed and new frames and fibreglass added including 2 layers of kevlar. This has made the yacht very strong and rigid which in turn has increased the performance. During the refit new water tanks and plumbing was installed and the yacht was completely re-wired with a mastervolt electrical system installed. The yacht has many fuses and switches installed from the batteries right through to appliances The refit also included new equipment, hydrogenerator, solar panels, computer, tv, satphone, biminis and sails.
