Mechanical and electrical systems
Fitted with a Volvo Penta D1-30 (29hp), three cylinder, indirectly cooled diesel in Dec. 2009 to replace the original 28 hp Volvo 2003. The propeller shaft, flexi-coupling and three bladed propeller were all replaced at same time. Only 205 running hourscurrently recorded.
A stainless steel rope cutter by Ambassador Marine is fitted ahead of the propeller.
Three lead acid batteries (dating from 2015) are fitted, with two 105A/hr batteries
constituting the 'services or domestic' battery bank and a single 105A/hr battery dedicated as the engine cranking battery.
Charging is by means of the engine-driven alternator plus a deck-mounted PV (solar) panel and 240V AC battery charger, when connected to a shore support.
A new Pro-sport battery monitor and charging regulator by Sterling was fitted in 2015.
Fuel: 227 litres (50 imp galls) in painted mild steel tank.
Freshwater: 454 litres (100 imp galls) total in two, linked stainless steel tanks located
on the centre-line, beneath the main saloon.
Hot Water: 45 litres (10 imp galls).
Holding Tank: 40 litres (8.81 imp galls).
Up to five berths laid out in two cabins, with 360 degree visibility from the deck saloon,
linear galley to port within the deck saloon, a larger than average heads compartment and indulgent forward double master cabin, with offset double berth to starboard.
All cushions and upholstery were replaced in 2009. The cabin linings have also been
replaced. Hot & cold, pressurised water is provided and the accommodation areas are
heated by a diesel-fired hot air heating unit.
Forward (Master) cabin: Notably generous in size for a 29' vessel, the forward cabin boasts a large double berth that is offset to the starboard side (with a oodles of storage beneath) and deep storage shelves to the hull sides. There are also a couple of drawers between
the berth and what was termed the 'vanity unit' that is located to port side. In reality this
latter is formed over the tunnel provided for a generous single berth (rather like a traditional and secure quarter berth) that runs forward from the vestibule area, opposite the heads compartment's door. The 'vanity' unit's fiddled surface is more usually used for convenient placement of a holdall style of bag. Abaft the head of the berth there is a shelved and generous hanging locker.
Heads Compartment: Located to starboard, ahead of the internal helm's position, this
compartment extends fully to the centre-line of the vessel and features a large, moulded
hand basin unit with integral wipe down surfaces and moulded draining floor reflecting its intended use for showering too. A marine flushing toilet has been supplemented with a holding tank having been fitted. Light and ventilation is provided by a factory-fitted overhead hatch, together with a solar-powered ventilator.
Main Saloon: Laid out to provide a dinette to starboard, with seating intended for up to four persons, the table may be lowered between the seats and then with the backrest cushions in-fill to facilitate a double berth conversion. Significantly, the bottom of the window-line outboard of the table and dinette seating is comfortable below
shoulder level - indisputably ensuring easy visibility of all that is going on around the vessel.
A surprisingly generous hanging locker for wets is located immediately inside the
companionway access, abaft the galley.
The internal steering position's seating is achieved by simply turning the dinette's forward seating's backrests to face forward, with the wheel located to starboard forward corner of the deck saloon, with sailing instrumentation, VHF and 12v DC distribution panel fitted here too.
Galley: Running down the port side of the deck saloon; the galley is linear in design, with
relatively large, uncluttered work surfaces to either side of a stainless steel sink and a full
two burner, grill and oven gimballing cooker is provided, beneath a hinged and lifting cover/additional work surface. Two drawers and three large lockers are incorporated within the galley unit, while a front-opening fridge is located opposite, within the inboard end of the dinette's forward-most seating.
