The centre cockpit gives a feeling of safety and security on passage and is a delight with one demountable small table which doubles as the sink top cover and one demountable larger table for meals etc which can also be mounted non-centrally to be used as a work bench. There are also two homemade demountable pullman style lights to add/create atmosphere. and the cooker and fridge are nearby/included so the cook never feels left out from cockpit conversations.

The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.
