Charter Yacht DULCINEA
Here's what Jon had to say:
|We have started making our way south after a very busy summer in the shipyard in New England making substantial upgrades to DULCINEA. Highlights from our busy yard period include the following work:|
The engine was removed and completely stripped down and rebuilt by Mac Boring of Yanmar -- so the engine now runs as new! It is much smoother and quieter also.
DULCINEA has been fitted with a new state-of-the-art Varifold 4-blade folding propeller and also a new transmission. We can now motor very comfortably at ten knots having eliminated vibration higher rpm's. In addition, we have noticed a significant increase in DULCINEA's sailing performance as the new propeller is very streamlined when folded, compared to a traditional fixed prop.
Other upgrades and improvements include:
Thanks for the update, Jon.
DULCINEA is a 63-foot Dixon sloop, with a crew of two. Ducinea is fully air conditioned and accommodates up to 6 guests in 3 cabins, each with ensuite head/shower. The aft master cabin has a centerline queen berth, while the other two guest cabins forward, each have a double berth.
