Northern Lights 12KW generator (412 hrs)
Fireboy Fire Suppression System

The lazarette contains the house battery bank along with all battery fuses and disconnects. Thruster and windlass batteries can also be paralleled with the house bank for increased capacity if desired. An upgraded Trace 2512 SW inverter provides power for all 120V appliances when the genset is not running. This boat was ordered with a “water maker prep” option and this would be the place to put it in if someone so desires. There is also a by pass switch added to this boat just in case of inverter failure, you would still be able to power everything up through the use of the generator.

The molded in swim platform makes for easy entry aboard either from the dock or the water using the fold down swim ladder. Once on the aft deck you will notice the walkway up the stbd side which provides ample space for moving fore & aft during docking maneuvers.
