The Ship/Yacht, has been lovingly maintained by her third owner, who has kept up a tradition for keeping her in top shape.
In 2010 The Vessel received a full exterior paint, including bottom, hull sides, topsides... truly complete paintwork!
Also, bonding system upgrades, bilges painted, and vessel audio-gauge. Most of the pictures in this listing were taken recently.
Her toys received new canvas all around, and the interior has several new upgrades as well just to spruce things up and keep her in top shape.
She sports an excellent, professional and very economically-conscious crew to keep her in top shape. Combine this with a Four Season's Chef and you have the makings of a finely tuned vessel ready to go cruising.
A little history... This go-anywhere expedition style ship was first converted for yacht-style cruising in 1993.
Originally built for the Canadian Coast Guard in Quebec, the vessel was designed, constructed and classed for light ice breaking.
She is a 170' Expedition Ship, which spent her first 30 years operating year round in fresh water on the St. Lawrence Sea Way.
Originally accommodating a crew of 34, the vessel was sold to a U.S. owner in 1993, at which time she was converted to a luxury yacht.
There were a number of cabins removed to make way for guest accommodations, a large master cabin and a main salon. In 1999 the ship was moved to Jacksonville, Florida where she underwent a 6 month mechanical refit of all engines and operating systems wherein the owner spent more than 4 million dollars on the upgrades alone!
In the spring of 2000 2 new John Deere 115 KW generators were installed as well as a back up 150 KW Isuzu and massive 8 Ton hydraulic deck Crane.
She is tremendously efficient burning only 30 gallons per hour at cruise for both engines and one of her generators.
This yacht/ship is a must see for anyone that is looking for a reasonably priced expedition vessel capable of world cruising.
