With that I thought I would talk about that infamous four letter word WORK. Over the last few weeks I have been commisioning a new Yacht at work. Azzurra a brand new 36 Foot Fountaine-Pajot Mahe Catamaran. The boat was delivered from France across the Atlantic Ocean on it's own bottom by a delivery crew.
Four thousand three hundred and eighty four miles on the log meter. So after all of this ocean time it was time for us to put in the "American Toys". Europeans use a different electrical system. So the boats from France come with a basic shore power systems. This boat now has a 6.5 KW generator,
as well as two air conditioners,
and a 2.5 kw inverter. We also installed a freezer to compliment the fridge installed at the factory as well as power converters to run the fridge and freezer on 110 Volt american current.
Besides the panels above we ran the wires to make them all work. we also doubled the battery capacity of the boat. The ground tackle, anchors were upgraded and we added a sun screen for the cockpit, as well as a soft bimini for the raised helm seat. There are tons of other little things but you get the idea. It's been a long couple of weeks but the boat has turned out really nice.
Greg and Tiziana congrats on your new boat.
