Extra information from the owner !
“Daurade” has been designed by Dick Koopmans, known as one of the most acknowledged yacht designer from the Netherlands. All his yachts come from first-hand experience. He cruised the world himself, shown in his excellent seaworthy designs. This 44 ft ocean cruiser gives you the opportunity to do the same. Very comfortable, due to the pilot house with a second steering position, a keen deck layout, a cutter rig, a very well isolated Woodcore hull and she is easy to sail. The owner is a fan of the KISS system (Keep it Simple Stupid – Peter Stuyverzands).
To navigate on board of “Daurade” they only used a map and a pair of compasses until this moment. The only concessions were a GPS and a Radar. The Interior is purely functional. For example, there are no (tight) doors but curtains (which also creates more space) and all cupboards are open.
If something had to be replaced or renewed in the last couple of years, our gauge was "do we really need this to be able to sail?". Often the answer was "no, not really".
It concerned among the following:
- The compressor from the fridge (connected to the engine) broken down -> not renewed.
- The electric PAR-shower water drain pump broke down -> Not renewed.
- The battery charger for the traction domestic batteries broke down -> not renewed, because the batteries are being charged via the solar panel and the alternator (when the engine runs).
The basic equipment needs to be renewed and/or extended to have "Daurade" up to date. A number of dated components need to be replaced/renewed, as for example:
- The paintwork of the superstructure and in particular, the Pilot House needs maintenance.
- Install LED Interior and navigation lights.
- The glasses of the bow and stern navigation lamps are old, hardened and discoloured. Must be renewed.
- The coils in the blocks for the Genoa sheets are ingrained and have to be replaced.
- The plastic pads/rolls at the back of the boom should be renewed (the rolls on the front side of the boom have been renewed recently).
- One mainsheet jammer (on the superstructure roof of the aft cabin) has been torn (and provisionally restored).
- One of the jammers, on the lowest block of the mainsheet, is damaged. When you know the trick, it is ok.
- The spinnaker pole is extendable, but never used extended.
- There is a small damage on the starboard rubbing strake.
- The caulking from the teak deck has to be renewed on several spots.
- A number of stanchions are slightly bent.
- Several corrosion spots on the white painted aluminium mast, boom and spinnaker pole need to be updated.
- The life raft needs to be inspected (last inspection has been carried out in 2010).
- Seafarer log/Speed isn’t functioning.
- All valves and sea cocks need to be checked and/or renewed.
- The toilet pump requires a service. A maintenance kit is on board.
- A new battery charger is necessary to be able to charge the domestic batteries with shore power.
- The current old domestic battery pack consists out of 6x 2 Volt Traction batteries and should to be replaced soon.
- It might be wise to replace the crackled windows and deck hatches.
- The wall behind the heater and also the through the deck part (of the exhaust pipe) should be isolated again.
- When "Daurade" was stored on the hard (already 4 years ago) the hull has been provided with a new layer of antifouling. During the last 4 years, the bottom of the hull has been cleaned frequently in the water. At the same time they renewed the anode on the propeller shaft. But the anodes which are mounted on the hull, close to the keel haven’t been replace in the last 4 years.
- The hull and the edge above the rubbing strake have been painted with a white Van de IJssel DD-coating in 2000. Because the white hull changed yellow coloured, the hull was painted with a transparent Van de IJssel DD-coating and the hull still retains its white colour. To date, the white border above the fender not yet equipped with these transparent coatings. The edge above the rubbing strake hasn’t been covered with this transparent coating yet.
