This inspection was performed upon the request of the client listed above on March 11, 14 and 15, 2022 while the vessel was afloat near the fuel dock in Marina del Rey, CA (3/14/22) and afloat and hauled at 5th Avenue Landing, San Diego, CA and Marine Group Boat Works (Chula Vista, CA). The two undersigned marine surveyors, XXXX (broker), XXXX and XXXX with Elite Yacht Management, Captain XXXX and broker XXXX attended.
Scope of Service
The vessel was examined by surveyor and/or surveyor’s agents from all accessible areas of the interior without removal of secured panels, destructive testing or disassembly. The hull bottom laminate, plating and/or planking was examined by percussion sounding and visual inspection only. No moisture content readings were taken, and no destructive testing was performed. The surveyor may have used a moisture meter if/when they deemed it useful or if specifically requested by client. Exterior hardware was visually examined for damage and drive components were tested by sight only. The inspection of engines, generators, machinery and related mechanical systems is not within the scope of this survey. Only a brief cursory inspection of the machinery was conducted, and no opinion of their overall condition was formed. Client shall retain the services of a qualified mechanic, engine surveyor or other expert to inspect such engine, generators, machinery and related mechanical systems. Tankage was inspected from visible surfaces only and no opinion was rendered as to their overall condition. On sailing vessels, the rig was not inspected aloft, nor were sails inspected unless they were visible during a sea trial. Client shall retain the services of a qualified rig surveyor or other expert to inspect sails, rigging and equipment. The electrical system was visually inspected where accessible, and electronic and electrical components powered only with permission of or in the presence of the vessel’s owner or agent. No in-depth testing or examination of the electrical system or electric schematic was conducted. Specifications were taken from published sources, measurements if made, should be considered approximate. The recommendations are based on federal and state regulations, industry standards, and/or surveyor’s own personal experience. The market value is based on research of available new/used comparable vessels, with consideration of geographic area where the vessel is located and reported sale prices where available. The surveyor will refer to and may reference CFRs, NFPA and ABYC recommendations (and/or other services) as the surveyor deems reasonable but not all regulations and recommendations will be applied nor should this report be relied upon as full compliance with the aforementioned entities. Every vessel inspection is different, and limitations may alter the scope of this survey, some limitations will be implied in the text of the report and some will be explicitly detailed. A Marine Survey Agreement which is reviewed and signed by the client details the terms governing this marine survey.

|Comments: The engines and transmissions were visually inspected and tested during a sea trial. The client had the engines and transmissions inspected by a mechanic, please refer to the mechanical survey report for greater detail as to the condition of the machine systems. The external surfaces and peripheral components of the engines and transmissions appear satisfactory. There is corrosion on both engines. There is staining on the port engine’s raw water pump, inboard alternator and motor mount below and outboard aft. The starboard transmission was reportedly replaced three years ago, after a seal failed. The engine controls functioned normally. There is no single throttle or low speed function. Wide open throttle was approximately 3590 rpm to port and 3560 rpm to starboard per the tachometers and top speed was 14 knots in San Diego Bay. The multi-function device displayed only the port engine’s instruments. The exhaust system is properly arranged and installed. There are fiberglass repairs on top of the starboard engine’s muffler. There are rust stains and corrosion (apparently) on electrical components in boxes inboard of the port engine and the stains continue below the boxes. The tender lift mechanism does not lift evenly, the starboard / engine side lifts more slowly. The propulsion components including the propellers, propeller shafts, struts and shaft seals were visually inspected. The propellers were percussion tested and spun with a fixed object adjacent to the blades. The propeller shafts were manipulated in the struts and observed while underway. Overall the propulsion components are in satisfactory condition. There is play between the port propeller shaft and strut bearing. The sacrificial anode is missing from the port propeller and almost gone on the starboard propeller. The steering system was visually inspected and test operated. The steering system functioned normally. The engine room blowers were energized. The blowers energized automatically with battery switches, the port engine room blower is loud. The generator was visually inspected, test operated and loaded. The generator functioned normally. There is minimal corrosion on the generator’s heat exchanger. There is staining on the drip pan below the heat exchanger. The through hulls were visually inspected and we attempted to manipulate the valves. The through hulls are in marginal condition. The port engine’s through hull valve handle has play on the stem and we did not move the valve. There were no valves on the deck drain through hull fittings in the engine rooms. The port engine’s sea strainer is not well secured. There is corrosion on the manual bilge pump discharge in the port engine room/steering locker. There is corrosion on the crew head’s seawater intake through hull fitting. The crew head seawater intake through hull valve handle is difficult to reach. There is corrosion on the #12 through hull fitting and on the generator’s seawater intake through hull fitting. There is corrosion on the starboard engine room through hulls including the engine, HVAC and bilge discharge. There is corrosion on the water maker’s through hull and valve in the starboard aft cabin bilge, we did not attempt to move the valve. We noted the through hulls seen while the vessel was hauled, but due to the delay in the haul out, we were unable to determine the function of all the through hulls. The seawater systems were visually inspected and most components were tested. Overall, the seawater systems are satisfactory. The electric bilge pumps were energized with their float switches. The manual bilge pumps were not tested.|
|Fuel: 387 gallon aluminum tanks in starboard and port aft bilge, tank in starboard and port forward cabin bilge (863 liters)|
|Fill & vent: One deck fill fitting per side on aft bench seat, labeled “diesel”, flexible hoses, all not labeled per US convention, some USCG type A1 hoses (apparently transfer hoses)|

Holding: Plastic tank inboard in starboard forward, port forward and port center heads, deck fittings located port amidships, port aft of amidships and on either side forward, all marked “waste”
|Comments: The fuel system including the tanks, fill, vent, feed and return lines was visually inspected as installed. Where visible the fuel system components are in satisfactory condition. There are salt crystals on the starboard fuel tanks, the source and cause is beyond the scope of this survey. The condition and age of the fuel (and water) and the integrity of the tanks (fuel, water, holding) and hoses is beyond the scope of this survey. Please consider filling all tanks for a simple, practical test of their integrity. The water pressure system functioned normally. The freshwater hose in the port steering locker has come free from three tie wraps. The foredeck washdown pump has a water selector valve (fresh or sea water in the anchor rode locker). The port aft shower sump collector was full of water and was leaking, the pump did not function. Debris came out of the port center shower head. We did not see holding tanks in either hull aft. Accuracy of tank level gauges is beyond the scope of this survey.|
|AC system: Two 50A 125 / 250V shore power inlets on the port transom, two 50A 125 / 250V shore power cords, system voltage not recorded|

|Comments: The electrical system including the shore power cord, shore power inlets, batteries, wiring, circuitry components and circuit protection equipment was visually inspected and most components were tested. Overall the electrical system is in good condition. The condition and age of the batteries is beyond the scope of this inspection. The video feed is not available on all multifunction devices. The flybridge windlass controller is inoperative and there is moisture in the display. The Simrad vhf handset on the flybridge had a low battery indication and was not functional. The pop-up light by the flybridge sink would not illuminate. The refrigerator on the flybridge was “iced over”. The vessel repeatedly showed autopilot computer missing error message, the significance is beyond the scope of this survey. The E-plex system indicated the starboard module was missing. The listing broker reports that service to this module is underway, and that it has been replaced but is not in service. The E-plex system pictorially showed there was a shore power connection and only the inverter was in use. The full and proper functionality of the E-plex system is beyond the scope of this survey. This system and most similar systems lack complete homogeneity, due to the programming options. There is apparent corrosion on electrical components in gray boxes inboard of the port engine, the cause is beyond the scope of this survey. The port engine room blower is loud. Our tester indicated a false ground at several outlets. The water maker was tested, the water maker’s meter indicated 820 ppm. There is no MMSI number in the vhf. The ice maker had no bucket. The port aft engine room light did not illuminate. One overhead light in the port aft cabin did not illuminate. The stereo in the forward cabin did not function normally, it became stuck booting up. There is rust on several nuts on the bow thruster.|

The vessel is a fiberglass composite power catamaran equipped with two diesel engines and a diesel generator. The vessel was built in France. The listing broker reports that the current owner is the original owner. The machine systems are original with the exception of the starboard transmission which was replaced less than one year ago. The anti-fouling paint was applied when the transmission was replaced. The vessel has reportedly been used only in California. The broker disclosed that there is work in progress on the E-plex system, no other known problems were disclosed. The broker reported no knowledge of any significant events in the vessel’s history, such as submersions, collisions, fires, etc. The vessel was inspected while afloat, hauled and underway in San Diego Bay. The vessel has no full time crew, limiting the survey. The vessel is basically structurally sound and, with the exception of the wrap, exhibits low usage type damage. Upon completion of the recommendations the vessel should be suitable for its intended purpose as a coastal cruising vessel.
Overall Summary: Good
Standard form key: We use subsection and overall ratings to summarize conditions found, based upon their appearance. Ratings include: Not examined, Not applicable, Faulty, Marginal, Satisfactory, Good, Excellent.
|ACTUAL CASH VALUE||NEW REPLACEMENT VALUE||INVESTMENT|
The actual cash value is the value that our research approximates the selling price of this vessel should be, at the time and place of our inspection. Consideration is given to vessel’s condition, geographic location, published listings and guides, comparable sales and listings, and market conditions. The new replacement value is the cost of this or a similar, new vessel, comparably equipped. The investment is the reported investment including purchase price and significant upgrades. No values include maintenance costs, storage or tax. The most relevant data found while researching the value is included below. We primarily use market value analysis methodology for determination of value.
Explanation of value opinion: The value is based on the soldboats.com reported sale prices and the yachtworld.com listing prices below. The best comparable sales are the 2019 vessel that sold in January 2021 in St. Augustine, FL for $2,365,000 and the 2018 that sold in November 2021 in Hollywood, FL for $2,200,000. The 2019 vessel is three years newer than the surveyed vessel but sold 14 months earlier and the Covid-19 induced demand has continued to raise values. We did not research which vessels may have been chartered. Most of the comparables are in a fairly small range of value and most are not in the US.
