Electrical Equipment

Shore Power Inlets:

3 inlets for 50 amps, 240 volts:

  • Stern inlets: 2 Cablemasters. Each 50 foot cords, 240 Volt, 50 Amp. One Port, One Starboard.
  • Secondary Stern Inlets: 1 Port and 1 Starboard standard 30 Amp, 240 Volt, waterproof inlets.

Isolation Transformers:

  • 2 - (1 Port, 1 Starboard) 240 volt, C-Power isolation transformers. This allows the boat to use its full compliment of electrical draw using just 50 amps.


The Shore and Generator electrical panel have power source selector switches, as well as indicator lights that show the path of the current from the source, thru the transformers, to its destination. This panel also has selector switches to select any inlet being used, including the generator. The Amp draw meters are also selectable for any source



One Trace 2000 Watt Inverter

Telephone/TV inlets:

  • Port and Starboard located at stern
Fuel Tanks and Filters
  • Approximately 851 gallons total in 2 tanks. One under Master bed and one under Guest bed.


  • The tank tops are recessed below the sides to form a “well” on the top of the tank. The well size has been calculated to hold all the fuel in the fill hose in case the hose should ever leak at the connection, and is easily accessible to pump out. Without this, the leakage and it’s odor, would spill into the bilge.


  • Two selectable Racor filters for each engine. Water alarms are on each filter with notification to boat’s Alarm System.


  • Racor drain “plugs” have been replaced with ball valves (safety wired shut) in order to easily drain off any accumulated water or empty out prior to filter change..


  • Fuel manifold has selector valves, and an electric pump to prime the filters at filter change.


  • Both Fuel tanks can be pumped out from valve connections in the engine room.


  • All fuel lines in the bilge run in separate fiberglass lined troughs.


  • Fuel (and water) measurements are done with a “Tank Tender” gauge.

Bilge and Emergency Pumping


24 Volt:

There are 4 pumps: One in each bulk headed section of the bilge between the bow and the engine room. They are activated by magnetic switches and include separate contacts for the alarm system. Pumps can also be manually started from the helm station.


120 Volt high capacity:

There are 4 pumps: One in each bulk headed section of the bilge between the bow and the engine room. They are are activated by a sealed diaphragm switch. They can also be manually activated at the pump site.


The 24 and 120-volt pumps are set to operate in series with the 24-volt coming on first.


Groco SBV emergency seacocks:

Engines and generator have the option of being used as EMERGENCY BILGE PUMPS.  Merely close the connected GROCO SBV seacock valve, and then remove a plug to pump out the bilge water

Heating and Cooling System



Marine Air Hydronics Chilled Water System with individually controlled air handlers and thermostats in the Engine Room, Each Stateroom, V Berth/Gym, Salon, Galley, and Wheelhouse.



Built in Hot Water Heating System throughout the vessel with individual thermostats in each Stateroom, V Berth/Gym, Salon, Galley, and Wheelhouse.


Heat from the refrigerator can also be vented inside in the Winter, or outside in Summer.


With the aft deck enclosure in place in the winter, the temperature out there can reach 75degrees on a 35-degree day. A temperature-controlled fan in the aft deck bulkhead can bring this hot air in to warm the main salon if using the baseboard heat is not necessary. 

Plumbing System

Drinking Water: Dedicated General Ecology Filtration System. Filters taste, odor, and water down to ½ Micron. Removes Giardia, Cryptosporidium, etc., and removes bacterial and Viruses instantly without the addition of chemicals, electricity or wait time. Fill the water tanks at any marina without concern!


Hot water re-circulation system provides push-button instant hot water in the Master shower and sinks, as well as the Galley sink. No precious tank water is wasted down the drain waiting for the hot water to arrive!


187 gallon 316L Stainless Steel water tank.

Push-button operated tank fill valve with safety overflow. Audible alarm sounds when tank is within 8 gallons of full.



2- 10 gallon 240 volt water heaters. Valves and couplings allow for single tank use, tandem use, or series use. Either tank can removed easily for service without affecting the other tank or water system.


One- 240 volt “Well” Water pump and One- 24 volt marine water pump. Pumps are set to automatically switch from 240 volt power to 24 volt power when shore power is disconnected. If generator power is used, pump will switch back to 240 volt. All of this is easily changeable.


Hot and Cold water is ultimately directed throughout the boat from 2 manifolds in the engine room. Each spigot in the boat is a “home run “ from the manifold. Therefor, any individual valve(s) can be shut off for service at the manifold without affecting the balance of the system. Also, any faucet and supply can be winterized individually.


Raritan electric macerator heads with remote pumps for easy servicing.

One forward head is optionally plumbed for fresh water operation


Head Discharge: Discharge is individually directed to either “Overboard”, or “Holding Tank”. This is done with individual electric motor valves for each head. Each valve can be selected, and then key locked at the Main electric panel in accordance with USCG.


All plumbing connections on the boat are easily acceptable. They are either wall mounted or have access panels.


There is an anchor wash down fitting and interior plumbing installed on the bow. Currently not in use.


All plumbing (except Heads) drains into a main drain system (P & S) running Fore and Aft and exits out the transom at the exhaust opening. NO ugly thru hull fittings on the sides of the boat!


High-pressure, Stainless-steel piping, boat washing system with “Soap” or “Rinse” options. Bow, stern and aft deck controls and high-pressure water connections. (Note: All plumbing and electric controls are in place and ready to go. The pump has never been installed.) This system is similar to a car wash system.
