THEY DID, and have since bought a larger boat, they did all sorts of good sorting and service works on purchase including, Servicing Toilets, waste system, FULL services to engines, ALL new batteries, new dsc vhf, service stern glands, any small gelchips filled around the deck, fit new bilge pump, new brushes to shaft Earth connectors, new "D" fendering around aft platform, new mirror in cabin, new anode bolts, shower pumps serviced, ( full service/ overhaul both engines including injectors specialist cleaned and re fitted heat exchangers striped and serviced, new seawater pumps, turbochargers overhaulled etc etc full check and sort out! (Richardsons) ) , aft teak blocks to tender sorted out to work better, etc etc, and lots of other detail cleaning works most carried out at Berthons.. so she is perhaps more "up together" than many boats .
