Electrical system consists of 12v DC, 110 AC and 220 AC 60 hz sources. Shore power requirements are 50 amp 220 VAC, 60 Hz single phase. Heavy loads are powered by 220 VAC; 110 VAC loads are powered by 2 AC buses trunked thru the two Trace SineWave inverters so that switching is transparent and automatic regardless of the power source (shore, genset, or battery banks). Can sit at anchor for 14 hours from inverter power.
Construction with safety as foremost priority. Steel fuel and water tanks integral to hull essentially creating a double steel bottom. Steel bilge keels not only provide passive stabilization and stabilization at anchor, but also allow yacht to stand on her own bottom for haulout or beaching for bottom cleaning or inspections, as well as being a critical element for intentional or accidental groundings or in navigational areas with large tide changes.
