This boat was little used for several years so when this owner bought her he took no chances and had the engines given a Good going through as low hours are often a problem.. ! The engineer was given Carte-Blanche and he replaced both turbos, which were sticky. having been unused for a while, They were then both fully serviced, and checked through, including fuel system etc.. They have run totally trouble free since. The carpets were replaced, new curtains, and the wonderful new aft canopy complete.
