Tech specs … an Océanis for cruising

A description of how we’ve set the boat up. From day one we’ve been thinking a) long term and b) cruising not racing. You’ll see this reflected in our options and the speed that we’ve made the changes.

And we had a bespoke Asymmetric Spinnaker made:
This awesome sail was made by
Paolo Favaro of BARAONDA SILMAKERS in Caorle, Italy.

Our storm jib was also made by Paolo at Baraonda Sailmakers. Up till the 2016 season it was secured (if needed) to a secure factory fitted fixed point on deck. It has a Dyneema bolt rope sewn in and runs up to a purpose fitted strong tang up the mast. Now that the new inner forestay has been installed, we’ll need our friendly sailmaker to find another way to attach this heavy weather sail.

Over the 2015/6 winter I had the rigging upgraded to include an inner forestay, a furling inner foresail and new tracks and blocks to better manage both headsails. The rigging was done by Meltemi Yachting, based in Athens and the sail was made by our friend Paolo at Baraonda Sailmakers, Caorle, Italy.

Solar Panels

We’ve fitted 4 flexible solar panels to the bimini. Technical specs for each one is shown below and each has it’s own regulator connecting to the 4 domestic batteries. For more information about the fitting, see the ‘Mods’ section.
