The hull was built in 2005 with 2x D6-350/DPR. Topspeed 58 and max cruisespeed 52 kn.
I bought the boat in October 2006 from Henrik Dahl with 200 hours on the meter.
Another 150 hours use in 2007 before I decided to enter the Round Britain 2008 Race.
To get more speed I decided to change the engines to D6-435 and had the drives modified by Volvo to the latest specifications.
When the engines were changed during last winter we also changed everything else int the engineroom.
New hydraulics to the steering incl oilcooler, electrics, batteries, fuellines, bilgepumps, 4 fireext etc
The instruments were also overhauled with the latest setups from Raymarine.
The instruments are 2x E120 GPS-plotters + one ST 70 , radar, rategyro, VHF.
Four Ullman-seats with suspension and footstraps.
