Ideal Boat For The Islands, Great Loop Or ICW.

Get where you are going quickly, efficiently and with comfort. The vessel is easily handled by a couple. Accommodations are for two couples with additional saloon sleeping for another two. With twin Volvo 220 hp turbo charged common-rail diesels, at Wide Open Throttle (WOT) of 4000rpm, you can achieve an impressive top speed of +24 knots. Ideal cruising speed is 80% of WOT, i.e., 3200rpm which achieves 15-17 knots with the boat fully loaded for extended cruising. When you are not in a hurry, you can enjoy gunkholing around in the shallows with the <3 ft draft. At any speed, the 18 ft beam provides exceptional form stability, while the two slender displacement hulls slice through the water with little impact on the boat’s motion. The 2’ 7” bridge deck and flared bow sections eliminate the discomfort of wave slams (in all but the most severe conditions). Engine noise and vibration have been dramatically reduced by placing the machinery aft of the living spaces and utilizing the Evolution Marine oil-lubricated shaft system with thrust bearing to isolate the propeller’s thrust from the engines. 

This yacht has been immaculately maintained. Numerous improvements and upgrades have been added, for example, in July 2019, a new Garmin Fantom 54 solid state open array radar was installed ready for our upcoming winter cruise to warmer waters.

Owner Notes 2020

SUMMER 2020 MAINTENANCE: Boat relaunched December 2020. 

As part of a refit at Deltaville Yachting Center:

1. All below the waterline thru-hulls replaced. 

2. Above the water fittings were re-bedded. 

3. The three front Ocean-Air blinds were starting to deteriorate, so had these replaced. Cost $3277. 

4. Attached outside shade covers on the three front windows to help protect the blinds. Cost approx. $800. 

5. Props have been painted with three coats of Pettit Prop Coat Barnacle Barrier followed by Pettit’s recommended 3 coats of Black Widow. First time I have used this combination so we will see. In the past I have used Prop-Speed, but this needed redoing every year. It was a bear to remove the old Prop-Speed and of course a very tedious reapplication process. 

6. Bottom was repainted with Sea Hawk Islands 44 

7. Bow thruster blades were coated with Prop-Speed antifoulant. 

8. Hull has been compounded with 3M Finesse It followed by two coats of Permanon Silver polish/protectant. 

9. A new Sea Fire automated fire suppression system for the engine compartments was installed. 

10. A new fan for the refrigerator was installed. 

11. Rudders were dropped and inspected for cracks. None were apparent in the rudder or the hull. Shaft, however, was sealed at the top of the rudder with 5200 for added flexible protection. 




a) Four overhead Lewmar™ sliding hatches in the saloon. All have Bomar™ sliding screens and shades. 

b) Windows with screens in saloon 

c) Teak/Holly flooring 

d) Design has rounded corners on all furniture as to mitigate bruising while on board. 

e) Hand holds and fids are everywhere. 

f) Ocean Aire pleated pull up blinds are fitted to all saloon windows. They essentially disappear, yet when down, offer good privacy and sun protection. The three forward blinds were replaced in 2020. 

Dining area: 

a) The cherry wood saloon table with fiddles is on sliders and can be raised and lowered to form a dining table, a cocktail table or a bed. 

b) An additional mattress was made to fit the saloon tabletop area. Removable legs were added to the tabletop to support even adults using this as a bed. 

c) Seating cushions: Sunbrella Sailcloth Shell 32000-0000 is the cover material for the salon and navigation station seating cushions. Fiddles on seat and Velcro™ retain cushions in place. 

d) Under the seating area offers the following:

I. Large storage area for spares and for cruising food and drink supplies. 

II. Under the aft seating is the 630amp hour 24-volt battery system, and Victron inverter 

III. Under the forward seating is the saloon air conditioner as well as storage accessible through a louvered cupboard door. 

IV. Also mounted underneath the seating is a Fusion woofer speaker, and a handy 110v outlet ideal for the vacuum cleaner. 

Nav Station Area: 

a) Forward facing: Accommodates, in a side panel the SSB, VHF Radio, and tank and battery monitors. (Genset controls are positioned in the port aft chase). Cabinetry is built to allow easy access to the backs of all the instruments/controls. There is a 110v and a 12-volt outlet here. A surge protector with multiple outlets for computers is attached to the outlet. A compact storage basket houses all excess cords and chargers. There is a computer cable access hole above it to allow all the cables from the computer hook up to be out of sight. An opening desktop provides good desk storage for nav instruments and office supplies. 

b) Nav station tabletop can hold a Maptech™ Chart Book (24” x 18”), or up to 2 computers. I mostly use the desk area on the port side of the Helm or the countertop over the refrigerator and freezer for chart work. 

c) Nav station desk is illuminated by a red and a separate white LED in the ceiling over the nav station. These are operated with independent dimmable switches at the Nav station. (see also Electrical) 

Helm Station:

a) Two adjustable Lebroc™ individual helm chairs with footrests. Steering and controls are from the port helm chair. Helm offers good visibility of all four corners of the vessel. 

b) The helm chairs are built on a pedestal suitable for reference book storage. 

c) Cabinets to port and starboard can accommodate a Maptech™ Chart Book (24” x 18”). These have fiddles to prevent the books from sliding off. 

d) Helm instruments are housed in a panel that allows access to them via a removable panel on the forward side of the box. Good ventilation of the instrument panel is achieved by several SS vents on this forward side. 

e) Controls for bow thruster, anchor remote, horn, wipers and search light are mounted to port. 

f) EPIRB: 

In Hull Accommodations:

a) There is an office built in guest stateroom that can be converted back to guest bed accommodation as needed. 

The office seat folds up when not in use. The desk drops down from its locked upright position. When needed as a bed, a tray drops down and the removable section of mattress is placed in position. 

A spot for a printer was designed in the cupboard forward of the office. We have also built in file cabinets, drawers and cupboards. 

b) Stateroom: a. Queen size bed 

c) Excellent sound insulation between the staterooms by floating the bulkheads with Soundown ™. Sound mitigation was also added to wiring channels, etc. 

d) Mattresses are secured with appropriate side boards. 

e) Master Mattress is 7” Latex supported by adjustable wood slats for comfort and moisture control. 

f) Guest mattress is 6” latex on Hyper Vent for moisture control. 

g) All furniture and paneling are American cherry. 

h) Moisture Condensation Control a. Power vents in the head/shower area to circulate air through the boat. These are water resistant, and quiet. Good to run when having a shower, or for venting the head. To allow air circulation, have two damper controlled louvered vents mounted high above the saloon door. 

i) One solar and one passive vent are mounted on the anchor lockers to create air flow between the two. 

j) A wooden louvered door is fitted on the forward starboard hanging locker. This locker has been lined with carpet to help with condensation. All hardware fittings here have also been insulated as during cold mornings it was surprising how much condensate formed on these through bolts and backing plates. 

k) A wooden louvered door is fitted under the seating in the saloon to allow good air flow to the saloon air con. 







Microwave convection oven

Cook top

Double sink

Good storage 

a) Hi Macs Tambora, VE01 (E) solid surface for counter tops with back splashes and fiddles.

k) Overhead cabinets above galley counters, L shaped. One section along the stern bulkhead above the stove top and the other section above the sink area. Designed to not block window viewing area. 

l) Fridge/Freezer. To maximize our range for cruising we selected both a large refrigerator and a large freezer. With these we can easily cruise for 3+ months without having to restock.

i. Vitrifrigo™ DW210RFX Refrigerator is a two-drawer refrigerator (34Hx27wx 22d) 6.4 cu ft, 45watt, Flush Face 

ii. Vitrifrigo™ DW210BTX two-drawer freezer. Same dimensions as above. 51 watt. Flush Face. 

iii. Extra venting was installed in cabinetry to lessen run time. 

m) Galley SS Garbage Bin 

n) To achieve a well-lit, bright galley, Imtra™ LED rope lights were installed under the overhead cabinets. These LED lights can also be dimmed for mood lighting. 









a) Depth sounder in each hull. Port Side Bronze thru hull (bonded) displays the depth on the port side chart plotter. The starboard side, shoot through design depth sounder, displays the depth on the GMI, starboard side. Having a depth indication in either hull allows one to know direction to steer to deeper water. 

b) Two 12-inch 8212 Chart Plotters. Both interfaced yet able to act alone should one go out. Both GPS antennae hooked up, as one comes with each chart plotter and recommended by Garmin. 

c) VHF Garmin 200 ram mike mounted at the Helm, with the main unit at the Nav Station.

ii. Installed a power booster for transmissions to ensure correct amperage is achieved for the transmission. 

iii. Antenna. Able to be lowered and secured. Best lowered for lightning storms and for transiting the ICW. 

iv. Connected to GPS such that can send DSC emergency signals. 

v. SSB unlocked to allow HAM band usage. 

e) Sirius/XM weather for Chart Plotter together with the GXM 51 Satellite Weather Receiver. 


Engines & Mechanical

a) Twin Volvo D3 220hp. These engines have been running well with minimum to no oil burn between my 100-150 hour service intervals. Volvo recommends performing oil changes at 200 hours. Each year an oil analysis has been preformed, and these do show that Seller could probably easily extend the change interval to 200+ hours, however Seller still prefer to change earlier. Engine hours Jan 2021 about 1700. 

b) Several modifications have been made to improve the installation and functionality of these Volvo engines:

i. Increased the Volvo recommended through hull and strainer size to achieve the correct vacuum pressure at the sea water pump. Paid for by Volvo. 

 ii. The crankcase filter units were upgraded at 922 engine hours to Mann-Hummel ProVent™ 400s from ProVent™ 100s which is standard on these engines. Because the ProVent 100 crankcase filters installed were too small for this size engine, all the oil vapor from the crankcase was not caught. The new larger ProVent™ 400 prevented oil vapor passing through the small collector and entering the air filter, the bilge and also contaminating the turbos. Volvo paid for some of this modification. Volvo did not want to acknowledge this design flaw as it would have cost them millions to recall all these engines. Since the upgrade, have had no oil vapor leak problems 

iii. Because of the oil contamination of the turbos from the undersized ProVent 100, New turbos were given to me by Volvo and were fitted at 922 engine hours by Chesapeake Cove Marina. 

c) Good sound insulation (IVF2020MN Vinyl/Lead/Foam 2 lb./sq. ft Soundown™ with Silver Mylar Facing). 

d) Standard Volvo EVC LED displays at the helm. Together with the Garmin Chart Plotter, I can monitor battery voltage, rpm, engine hours, engine temp, oil temp, turbo pressure, oil pressure, fuel usage, NM since last fuel fill and the amount of fuel burned by each engine since the last fill. The latter is great for knowing how much fuel to take on. 

e) Volvo NEMA 2000 Gateway box installed into Garmin N2K backbone. 

f) Volvo engines run totally independent from each other, except for the ability to automatically synchronize the engines rpm. 

g) Dual Raycor™ Max Turbine Series, 75 500 Max primary fuel filters are installed for each engine. These allow easy change of filters while running without having to stop the engine. 10-micron filters are used as was recommended by Volvo. I change these about every year depending on the vacuum gauge reading. Can monitor these filters after each run with the built-in vacuum gauge. Have not had to change more frequently as I maintain fuel with additives and ensure good fresh diesel is added at each fill. 

h) There is a hidden kill switch for each engine to prevent unauthorized starting. 

i) Counter rotating Props. 

The EMSS Thrust Bearing. This system puts the thrust from the props directly on the hull rather than on the engine mounts. This improves fuel efficiency, noise and vibration. Unlike other P47s, I have pumps that circulate the oil from the oil reservoir through the thrust bearing to ensure better lubrication. 

k) Engine Air inlets and outlet sizes are appropriate as there was no negative pressure differential when assessed with the engine running. I had this checked by Chesapeake Cove Marina, Deltaville, VA. Maine Cat used a Vetus 7” by 35” louvered vent for intake air and 5” by 13” for forced exhaust air with a Delta-T exhaust fan. Maine Cat builds their own custom dorade boxes to ensure only air enters the engine room. The standard Vetus™ product was not adequate. These fans are rated for continuous use. If the fans are operating, they will be shut down if the fire suppression system is activated. 

l) Reverso™ engine oil change system for each engine compartment. Direct plumbing was not possible for the Volvos, however, the Northern Lights Genset was plumbed. Hose and fittings to the Reverso™ make oil extraction from the engine dipstick tube easy and fast. Storage tube for the copper dipstick extraction tube installed. 

m) Reverso™ Fuel Polishing. Has the ability also to transfer fuel between tanks for rebalancing. All lines and valves are clearly labeled as to their function. 

n) Have an Algae-X™ In-Line Fuel Conditioner LG-X Series 500 for each engine to de-aggregate fuel particles in the fuel feed lines for both the engines and generator. Positioning is before the primary filter. 

o) Fuel shut off valves are accessed outside the engine compartment, in the port and starboard aft lockers. 

p) Fuel tank fabricated out of FRP. They have good access for clean out. Good baffling. 

q) Fuel fill whistles are installed on both fuel tank air vents. This allows one to know when the tank is full. I use a rubber insert which goes over the fuel hose nozzle to seal the fuel inlet. This prevents fuel blow back and ensures that all the escaping air emanates through the vent hose and whistle. 

r) “H2O Out” Silica Gel in the fuel vent line to absorb moisture to keep fuel dry. 

s) Access to front of engine. Enough space to allow change of the impeller and belts. 

t) Have double clamps of appropriate band width on all hoses as required by ABYC, e.g., AWAB Marine Grade 316SS smooth interior, or Trident or Shields T bolt where required 

u) Automatic fire suppressant in each engine compartment with alarm at the helm. 

v) Height of the raw water strainer such that the top is above water line although not so high that the filter compartment drains totally. 

w) Shock cords secure engine compartment hatches when open. 

x) Bilge in engine compartments is painted with a 2-part epoxy so that oil and other contaminants are easily cleaned up. Gel coat alone is easily stained and hard to clean thoroughly. 

y) Engine rooms have LED lights 

z) There is easy access to the drain plug on the WaterLock Muffler system 

aa) Rudders able to be easily aligned. Written directions are supplied in the Operations Manual. 

bb) Protected from grounding by a sacrificial skeg 

cc) Vessel is very responsive to these large rudders. 

dd) Propellers: ACME props (1 888 661 2263), diameter 20”, pitch 22”. The props as originally installed by Maine Cat were 20 x 23. When the vessel was tested by Volvo in Maine prior to delivery WOT was just 4000rpm as it should be. However, the vessel was lightships, that is little water in the tanks, even less fuel and not loaded for cruising. We did achieve a top speed of 23.7 knots. In testing that a vessel has the correct size props, one needs to run at WOT and achieve the 4000rpm required for the D3 220 engines when loaded as it would be for normal use (loaded for cruising). So, in discussions with Bob Reiner at Chesapeake Cove Marina, Deltaville, he suggested that he send the props out for rework to take 1” out of the pitch. This was done and the adjusted props were reinstalled 9/13/17. With this adjustment, we were able to achieve WOT with the boat loaded for cruising. Top speed did drop a little. 

ee) Rudders are able to be easily aligned. Written directions are supplied in the Operation Manual.  They are protected from grounding by a sacrificial skeg. Vessel is very responsive to these large rudders. Steering hydraulics easily refilled and bled.

ff) Gen Set: a. 6 KW Northern Lights M673L.33, Single phase 1800 rpm. 10/19/19 = 466.7 hours run time. 

gg) Sound Enclosure 

hh) Gen Set is mounted in the port engine compartment with easy access. 

ii) AGM starter battery for the Gen Set is maintained by a controller from the start battery to ensure that the battery is in full charge even after prolonged no use. 

jj) Genset Primary Fuel Filter. Racor™ Single unit Max Turbine Series 500MA. Filter is top loading, with a clear bottom sight glass and with the protective shield. Sight glass is easily viewed. 

kk) Spares:

I. primary and secondary fuel filters. 

II) Northern Lights recommended spare parts kit (raw water pump seals, a spare raw water pump, belts, hoses, impellers, etc.). 

III. Oil filters  

ll) Fuel shut off valves activated by remote pulls positioned in the cockpit aft cabinets. 

mm) Bow thruster: Side Power SE80/185T, manufactured by Sleipner Motor AS (Norway) and distributed by IMTRA. It has twin counter rotating propellers which develop 176 lb of thrust from a 6hp motor. This the largest thruster that Maine Cat had installed as their standard one was, I thought, underpowered for the size of the vessel. Control is conveniently placed on the port side of the helm. Hull installation has been flared to decrease turbulence. 










Cockpit & Deck

a) Stern seat has lockable storage under the seat. Good for dry boxes holding the various tools and spares. 

b) Cockpit cushions: 3” reticulated foam cushion with back tapered 3” to 2’. Fabric is Sunbrella© fabric Dolce Oasis 56001-0000 with UV resistant thread. 

c) Cockpit table: Table is a one-piece design, cherry 24” x 48” with wide radius corners and fid. It has a good weather resistant marine high gloss finish. Two legs give it stability. 

d) Sunbrella padded cover for cockpit table. Color Aruba 4612-0000. Stitching in UV resistant thread. 

f) Bell, louvered vents above the door, and the motion sensor light. With the vent fans in both heads, by having the vents shown open, get good circulation of fresh air through the boat. 

g) Have good storage in the cockpit cabinets:

i. Cabinets with locking doors on either side of the seating. 

ii. Cabinets against the saloon bulkhead: The port side cabinet has a triangular sink used very frequently. Sink has a single faucet for hot and cold water with a pull-out center hose. A soap dispenser is installed. 

iii. Beneath sink is a secure, vented to the outside of the port inside hull, storage for the active and a spare 20lb propane bottle. This outside gravity venting is also connected to the cabinet upon which the BBQ is mounted. Propane bottles are secured to prevent movement in seas. 

iv. In a separate compartment in this port side saloon bulkhead cabinet, it has been plumbed and wired for a future washer dryer should this be desired. Currently the space is used for storage of cleaning supplies and folding PICO deck chairs. The shelving is easily removed if one desires installation of the washer and drier. Personally, we never have found the need for these. Marinas have good facilities and when we are offshore cruising in the Bahamas, we wash our T shirt and swimming shorts by hand, after our outdoor shower in the evening, and they are dry by morning. 

v. The starboard side cupboards provide good storage for water filters and connectors, small stuff (lines), bungee cords, safety equipment such as our 4 off-shore Type I life jackets, Type II and III life jackets, throw cushions, ditch bag, black day signal anchor ball, damage control plugs, SOS strobe light, emergency throw line when not attached to the stern railing, etc. 

h) Magma Catalina A10-1218 Propane BBQ in cockpit, 

i. Mounted on the aft cabinet to port. Mounted such that if have the cockpit surrounds up, there is no concern for contact with the Sunbrella© canvas. 

ii. Bolted on to prevent theft. 

iii. Sunbrella© Aruba 4612-0000 cover for the BBQ. 

iv. The propane bottle serves the Princess cook top and the BBQ. There is a gas shut off to the BBQ. 

v. Safety solenoid switch in galley close to stove top to allow remote propane shutoff. 

vi. Installed a propane sediment/drip trap to prevent oil/grease/etc., from entering the regulator valve. Have incoming line from tank with the trap just before the regulator.

vii. BBQ and cockpit are well lighted with LED lights which can be dimmed for mood lighting. 

viii. Propane detector and alarm: One in the cupboard where the propane enters the saloon from the cockpit locker? The cupboard housing the propane lines is sealed to prevent propane leaking further into other cupboards/bilge/etc. 

ix. Combined CO/fire/smoke detectors, one at the base of both sets of stairs in each hull, as well as one in the salon. 

x. Appropriate safety stickers are attached (ABYC A-1, 1.11). 

i) Scuppers in the cockpit have SS recessed drain covers. They drain overboard. 

j) Telescoping flat step Swim Ladder is mounted on the port stern transom platform. It has a hatch cover to allow the deck to be unobstructed. This cover can be lifted and the ladder easily deployed if one is in the water, to allow access back onto the boat. 

k) Retrieve and storage system for the shore power cord. See detail in Electrical Section. 

l) Wave design Gates on stern to prevent accidental MOB. Gate latches allow secure attachment. 

m) SS side safety rails mounted on the cockpit sides. Not only do they provide an extra measure of safety, but they also allow easy attachment and adjustment of fenders. 

n) Two overhead hand holds. Three additional hand holds on the two aft cabinets and at the cockpit sink 

o) Fishing rod holders for 4 rods are mounted on the cockpit ceiling. An additional two removable holders are mounted on the stern for use when trolling. These two have slip mounts that allow the holders to also be transferred and used on the dinghy.

a) Electrical and electronics line drawings 

b) All electrical well marked. 

c) Electrical neat and well secured. Chafe protection as needed. 

d) Detailed list of all fuses and their size/type and position on the vessel. 

d) House battery bank. Minimum of 600amp/hr at 24V (six Victron 8-D Deep Cycle AGM batteries with a total of 1320Ah at 12V). This has proved well sufficient as I rarely discharge below 70%. 

e) Solar TSM-305 72 cell microcrystalline 3x305 watt (max 38 amp) solar panels, 24 volt output with a Morningstar ProStar 45 controller/booster. Have mounted a separate cut off switch for the solar to allow shut off if needed. 

f) Victron Quattro Inverter/charger 5000W. Can run the soft start air con with associated front window defrosters while underway with this inverter. 

All loads go through the inverter, so if lost shore power, solar power, or engine power and these high loads were attached (water heaters, air con), could drain the battery bank quickly. Careful monitoring needed. 

g) 12 volt alternators on the Volvo engines feed the 12 volt start batteries. Can monitor the state of charge of the start batteries on the Volvo engine instrumentation at the helm. 

h) On the engines also installed are 110 amp at 24 V high output alternators (Balmar) with the Balmar Centerfielder and regulator. Allows running of the aircon while underway.

Power cable is housed in a SS cover on the starboard side of the house just under side aft window. Have the appropriate 30/50 amp and 125/250 to 125V adapters to meet all dock power attachment possibilities. 

Switch for retracting is out of the way in the cockpit but handy to the electrical cord storage. 

j) Forward of power inlet is the hook up for shore TV cable
