Well, the standard package is definitely worth while, although there were a number of things we changed or added, as it is the perfect opportunity to do so at the time of 'speccing' up a rib.
Starting from the bow (Jason will forgive me as a number of things come as standard and I might mention them), we wanted a dedicated anchor locker, large enough so as not to struggle getting a larger anchor in, and out the way. A decent sampson post will be provided in this area. A bulkhead will then seperate a cavernous locker, which drops down into the hull which is almost 6 feet long. This is accessed through one or two large lewmar hatches. There are a choice of consoles, although these can be modified to conform exactly to your criteria. Again , a large lewmar is on the front of the console for aesy access and storage under the double console seat.
We chose console 1 as shown. The power will be provided by a Suzuki 250Hp 4 stroke which comes with a tachometer and accompanying displays for temp, oil etc. The choice of GPS is a Garmin 180 and an ICOM 601 (DSC) VHF. A through hull transducer will feed into a single VDO depth gauge, completely seperate from anything else. The fuel tank is GRP (380l)and is integral to the hull with access to breather and filler pipes as well as sender unit through a hatch neatly concealed on the deck 'in' the console.
I was particularly impressed at the neat installation of all the wiring and looms inside the console with seriously beefy water-proof trip switch box - photo to follow. Seating are jockey seats, two singles up front with 2 doubles immediately behind with an integral aft bench seat. Double A-frame with welded cleats higher up so as to provide a clear run for mooring lines, this prevents the tubes chafing. The A-frame will support a 2m Glomex aerial, gps antennae fitted flush onto a plate with 2 s/s flag poles. In the centre will be powerful light, as well as the obligatory nav lights.
The wind-screen and s/s rail have not been fitted yet but can be seen in the next photograph.
