Fuel Consumption: Both Engines and one generator is 250 liters per hour at 10 knots

Her electrical systems could require a complete refit. However all systems are working

She will need dry dock services or underwater cleaning before leaving the province.(she had not sailed since her last dry dock 5 years ago)

The cost of the last service that included sandblasting, some replating and painting was about 20,000 USD With only dry dock and painting the cost would be about 10kUS$

Water tanks should be cleaned and/or sandblasted inside.

All cabins should be considered to be redone with new arrangements. About 60 cabins look a lot anyway.

The repair cost would depend greatly according to the modification and work wanted to be done. However the present location offers a good and cheap option to do that work
