The hull was completed and delivered and commissioned in the UK in June 1991. The boat was immediately exported to Majorca and has been maintained by full-time crew ever since.
The hull was completely epoxied and treated for osmosis below the waterline in 1996 by Astilleros in Palma.
The boat is a displacement craft and attained a maximum speed recorded by GPS,
of 13 knots at 2700 rpm on final sea trials. The most economical cruising speed is at 10 knots when consumption averages 1 mpg.
The boat has been anti-fouled each year and is pressure washed to remove marine
growth in mid-season. The hull and superstructure is waxed and polished during
the annual lift-out.
The teak capping rail to the bulwarks has been varnished rather than left natural finish.
The vessel is Jersey registered, Vat paid and is to be sold with complete inventory of cutlery, china, glassware, cooking utensils and linen.
