This boat is ideally suited for solo sailing but even with 4 people on board still plenty of room. Halyards and sheets can all be controlled from the cockpit. The boat is equipped with a windvane steering system (windpilot) and autopilot which is linked via seatalk/NMEA2000 to B&G plotter and autopilot from Raymarine. All with the aim of being able to sail long distances solo. The rigging and sails have been replaced/renewed in the last 5 years. Also the rudder and bearings are renewed which makes the ship pleasant and predictable sailing. On the Dutch coast and spacious waters she feels at home and she takes a sail easily without equal extreme tubes. The engine is good and starts easily always proved reliable.

The interior is not really dated but not modern either. There is a lot of interior space which makes her suitable for long trips. There is a fridge on board and a three burner gas stove with oven. For lighting there are 2 pieces 100Ah service batteries available, almost all lighting is in led.
Front is a spacious V bed and under the cockpit bench a generous pilot berth, in addition, the two benches in the cabin can be used as waiting berths.
There is a spacious wet room containing an electric toilet and a holding tank.This is a great way to get a good night's sleep.
The bukh engine has never let me down, always starts. It is a rock solid engine that if you keep it up will last for years. The propeller shaft, shaft bearings and propeller have all been renewed. The engine has its own starter battery and is always charged first, after which a Victron Cyrix relay is used to charge the service batteries. With a meter in the cabin, the state of charge of the service battery and the starter battery can be read. There is also a Victron charger that charges and maintains the battery through 220V shore connection. A Victron solar cell and charger maintain the batteries when there is no 220V available.
Navigation and electronics
The navigation consists of an NMEA system with a B&G Vulcan plotter, a B&G windset and a Raymarine autopilot. So everything talks to each other which makes it easy to navigate and sail solo, this was also the whole purpose of the current navigation setup.
There is a sailor radio on board, maybe old fashioned but always works.
Rig and sails
Many recently renewed, sheets, halyards, rigging, sails etc. everything younger than 5 years.
Standard equipment such as mooring lines, fenders, swim ladder, anchor gear etc.
There is no liferaft available
