The first owner bought the boat in November 1999 and started to sail in 2000. We purchased the boat in the spring of 2010, which has been significantly boosted next years. It was little used when we got it and equipped rather modestly, but it had a great prospect for additional development.
Much time has been spent on keeping and supplies. We properly covered and preserved the boat when we kept it on land during winter. Each year we polished and waxed the boat, preventing wear on the gelcoat throughout the winter and making spring cleaning considerably easier. That’s why it’s in excellent condition.
Below there are improvements made since we have purchased it:
Switch for the electronic shut-off valve on the gas tank on the aft deck. If you forget to leave the boat, it automatically turns off when the main power is switched off. The gas stove has been replaced with a new Eno 2 burner and oven.
Old Valla’s diesel heater was replaced with a 4 kw Eberspecher, as well as insulated heating pipes, and new heat outlets in the drying room and aft cabin.
New Standard Horizon map plotter with Cmap chip for Svalbard, Norway, Sweden west, Denmark, etc.
New Standard Horizon DSC VHF with handset also on the pedestal.
Standard Horizon portable DSC VHF with built-in GPS, floating, with the same MMSI no. as the primary device.
New Quick 30 amp shore current charger for two battery banks.
The Efoy fuel cell charger powered by methanol can be operated both manually and automatically.
Solar charger with MPPT controller with removable solar panel, new this year.
Quick anchor winch at the front with 50 m 8 mm chain and 15 kg Bruce anchor, operating unit in the anchor well.
Quick anchor winch at the back with 50 m 6mm chain and 10 kg Bruce anchor, operated on a pedestal.
New Raymarine autopilot with electronic compass.
TV 19 h Finlux with card reader for Rikstv, Glomex antenna at the top of the mast with the amplifier by the TV.
DAB radio Pioneer 40 w. Loudspeakers in both the saloon and cockpit. Both FM and DAB, USB input and AUX output.
Isotherm compressor and evaporator new 2019.
New sails; Rollogenoa Elvstrøm Breeze 150 Radial laminate table cloth. Roller mainsail Elvstrøm Epek’s canvas with 3 long and 3 short upright piles. Total price 53,000. Enormous improvement in sailing properties compared to the old dacron sails.
Dinghy Rings for inflatable boats make it possible to tilt up the inflatable dinghy on the stern. It’s really functional when the boat is in port to prevent hail and rainwater. We have also experienced that the dinghy in tow has gone around in strong winds. Then it is also good to be able to tip up the sailboat.
The teak outside was very well taken when we got it. It was sanded and varnished as long as possible. The door in the cockpit is still lacquered teak, while the benches are now coated with Easyteek. It is very easy to maintain and non-slip.
We have experienced the boat as both practical and safe to sail. Although we like ourselves best in a pleasant sailing wind, it cannot be avoided that the road to land occasionally becomes long when storms suddenly set in. We have experienced the boat being safe up to 19-20 m/sec, much due to good sails and a deep keel.
