Now earlier shots;
taken June 2019, afloat at her berth in Poole.
Aft end, note steps up each side aft, helps versatility of berthing, note the hard top, makes the aft canopy / curtain pack become near vertical which makes the aft seating areas FAR more freindly, also note the superb Swedish High Teck electric/hydraulic dinghy handling system, NO dinghy included, but the system will cope with up to MAX 500 KG, personally I would put smaller unit on here for trim of the main boat, She has had increased Trim tabs fitted with greater Cord, and twin rams etc.. so even with heavy rib, you can trim her decently,
the synthetic Teak looks very good all round,
deck gates at each aft end before steps to aft platform.

This is well worth a mention and typical detail from this owner,
The standard bow thruster fitted works fine when all is perfect..
BUT there is a long run and even being a 24v boat, the Bow thruster was often a bit "lame"
So the owner had his electronics guy have a proper look and they suggested a Big bank of decent batteries local to thruster, ( 4 x 110amp Batteries) and a stand alone charge for them , this he did and a new shelf was fitted, batteries installed etc, The result is a superb bow thruster in on ALL occassions
decent Victron charger just for bow thgruster set. ( theyalso suggested upgrading the standard ships charger at the same time and that was upgraded with a new bigger Victron unit as well!)
