Open 40 with design of Phil Morrison and built by the Belgian Shipyard Shipsupport under controll of Ronny Nollet.
She is constantly maintained by the owner on high standard and is ready to race for a new owner to enjoy!
To prepare her for the Global Ocean Challenge and TWOSTAR an extensive refit was planned. Among others, the following parts of the boat were renewed or overhauled.
- The hull and appendages have been sanded, damage in the gel coat repaired and locally repainted.
- A new anti-slip layer has been applied to the deck.
- The hull has been polished.
- The underwater hull is equipped with a fast anti-fouling. Just before launch the rudders and keel are painted bright orange.
- A new chair is installed (Sparco) that is adjustable in all directions and also rotates on its axis so that a comfortable seat can always be found when inclined.
- In the central navstation a new Furuno GPS (GP39) is installed with the newest antenna on the antenna pole aft. A new JRC radar (JMA-1032) dome and screen are installed. A new Icom M330GE DSC VHF. All instruments receive relevant nav data via seatalk/nmea multiplexer.
- A new double stove is installed in the galley. All gas hoses replaced.
