This project was completed in the summer of 2017. A classic 42’ 1959 wooden ketch rigged ‘Gentlemen’s Motor Yacht’ designed by Fred Parker. The vessel has undergone extensive and complete renovation for the new owners by Charlie Hussey at Baltic Wharf Boatyard in Totnes. I was pleased to be involved with this refit and was tasked to carry out planning and specifications for a new electrical and electronic system and to carry out the complete rewiring of the boat. A new custom built switch panel and terminal distribution board along with new battery layouts which included Optima engine start batteries and remote switching together with a new Victron charging system.

A new Vetus bowthruster with Optima batteries was included in the fwd. cabin and a set of Victron AGM batteries were installed under the saloon floor for domestic use. The vessel has been fitted out with a complete Simrad Marine Electronics package including NSS Evo2 multifunction display, AIS, Simrad 4G Radar, Autopilot, VHF and a Simrad IS40 instrument system.

There is a full Dokensip wireless boat monitoring system installed to give the owners peace of mind when she is left unattended on her mooring. The owners have enjoyed their first season afloat and the boat is looking stunning.
