This inspection was performed upon the request of the client listed above on February 16, 2021 while the vessel was hauled at Shelter Island Boatyard and afloat in Kona Kai Marina, San Diego, CA and the listing broker, client’s captain, owner’s captain and surveyors attended.


Scope of Services


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 vessel was inspected while hauled and afloat. The hull bottom was visually inspected and randomly sounded. The hull bottom is in good structural condition. The current owner’s captain stated the bottom paint was applied in January 2019 at Shelter Island Boatyard, San Diego, CA. At the same time, the propeller shaft seals, and rudder seals were replaced, and the boot stripes were painted. There are small blisters on the hull bottom, several are concentrated in areas which may have fairing compound (struts). A few were examined and appear to originate within the laminate. The hull sides and transom were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The hull sides and transom are in satisfactory structural and cosmetic condition. There are numerous cracks on the starboard side, the owner’s captain stated this occurred from contact with the prior owner’s dock and the listing broker suggested that some of the damage may have happened during hurricanes. The damage on the starboard side is consistent with impact with three dock pilings, though the rub rail does not show the associated damage. There is damage on the starboard hull side aft, amidships, and forward of amidships. The amidships cracks are visible on the interior of the bulwarks. There are cracks in the gelcoat about the transom locker and the transom door, about all port lights to starboard and at least two of port lights to port. There are numerous localized repairs, exhibited by different color gelcoat “patches”. There is an apparent repair at the starboard aft scupper, a 10” circle forward of the starboard aft port light and a 1” spot aft of the second from aft port light on the starboard side. There are minor gouges to the starboard rub rail forward of amidships. The HIN applique on the transom is failing. There are brown spots on the starboard side of the transom near the deck. The deck and superstructure were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The deck and superstructure are in satisfactory structural and cosmetic condition. There are numerous cracks all over the deck and superstructure. The location of cracks include: base of transom door frame, about the cable caddy toggle switch, about the lazarette hatch, on the cockpit sink counter, throughout the flybridge deck and bulwarks, on the flybridge sink counter, about the port aft deck locker, near the window to port aft on the superstructure, the base of the railing for the flybridge to aft deck steps, around window cover fasteners, in the black area around the side windows and windshield, both side deck steps up to the foredeck (port and starboard), between the port lights above the deck on the port side, many locations about the foredeck including on bulwarks, around the windlass and at the junction between the cabin top and deck, on both wing doors, and forward of the starboard door, on the bulwarks near the stanchion bases, above the starboard forward window (audible difference here), inboard of the starboard amidships external impact damage. The color differences noted include: aft of the starboard wing door below the window (5” x 2”), both sides of flybridge side panels externally, forward of the port wing door, between the port side port lights above the deck forward of the wing door, in several locations at the junction between the deck and the forward cabin top, the bottom starboard edge of the transom door externally, by the steps and scuppers on both sides of the cockpit. The teak decking is weathered aft, and is significantly damaged on the swim step. There is a damaged plank in the port aft corner of the aft deck. All the teak decking appears to be original. The deck hardware including safety rails, mooring devices and hatches was visually inspected and most hatches and the port lights were opened and closed. The bottom drawer in the center cockpit locker would not open. There is mildew inside the inspection hatch on the transom interior near the transom shower. Two of the cap rail fasteners were stiff and we did not fully pull off the cover. A vent cover for the port fuel fill locker is broken. Overall the deck hardware is in satisfactory – good condition. The hatch between the aft deck and the flybridge is crazed. There are paint lines on the starboard gunnel forward. There is vertical line texture (print through) in the white gelcoat on both sides of the superstructure. There is an audible difference above the starboard aft window approximately 5” forward of the center forward gasket. There is damage to the wood at the entry to the crew cabin through the transom door. The black about the windshields and windows exhibits various damage, particularly at the corners. The structural reinforcements including the stringers and bulkheads were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The structural reinforcements appear to be in “as-built” condition. There are cracks on the stringers in the lazarette where they change height. The bilge is holding minimal water; the origin of the water is beyond the scope of this survey. There are stains to port in the lazarette near the exhaust tube, staining goes up to the deck. There are stains to port in the forward bilge space, below the freshwater pressure tanks. The cause and significance of the stains is beyond the scope of this survey. There is unsecured lead ballast to starboard in the owner’s cabin bilge. The interior cabin spaces are neat, clean and orderly. The interior of the vessel is in satisfactory – good cosmetic condition. There is minor wood discoloration under VIP head’s forward port light. The VIP cabin door does not lock. The saloon headliner is loose. There are miscellaneous wooden scratches from use, primarily on the sole and on other surfaces. The pilothouse headliner has stains and wrinkles. The wood veneer is chipped on the forward dinette seat, on the vertical below the cushion. The overhead liner in the crew cabin is wrinkled and loose. There is a “wrinkle” in the wood veneer to port in the owner’s cabin, 1’ aft of the forward port light and 8” above the shelf. This survey is not a mold inspection. The condition of the coring, in the hull, deck, and elsewhere as applicable, is beyond the scope of this inspection.

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. Wide open throttle was 2393 rpm to port and 2376 rpm to starboard per the tachometers and top speed was approximately 22.8 knots in one direction in San Diego Bay. The external surfaces and peripheral components of the engines and transmissions appear good. The engine controls functioned normally. The engine controls had no troll function. The exhaust system is properly arranged and installed. There is staining at the water injection hose connection into the port engine exhaust tube, aft in the engine room. The port engine exhaust hose is cracked by the muffler and the hose is not fully on the muffler’s flange. There are cracks in the fiberglass flange for the muffler by the hose. We did not access the starboard muffler and hose connection. 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 (though they are too large to manipulate by hand), visually inspected and observed while underway. Overall the propulsion components are in good condition. Both of the propeller shaft seal hoses are not fully inserted on the fiberglass tubes. The sacrificial anode is missing from the starboard Spurs line cutter. There is minor runout noted when spinning the port propeller with a fixed object adjacent to the blades. There was moderate vibration underway. The steering system was visually inspected and test operated. The steering system functioned normally. The owner’s captain reported that one of the actuators was recently replaced. There is no screen over the port engine room vent fan. The engine room blowers were energized. The generators were visually inspected, test operated and loaded. The generators functioned normally. There is corrosion below the starboard generator’s seawater pump, primarily on the mount and there are salt crystals below the generator. The insulation in the port generator box is failing and the insulation on the top of the starboard generator box is loose. The through hulls were visually inspected and the valves were manipulated. The through hulls are in good condition. The seawater systems were visually inspected and most components were tested. Overall, the seawater systems are in good condition. The seawater washdown is inoperative. Most of the electric bilge pumps were energized with their float switches. The bilge pump in the waste treatment room did not energize with its float switch. We could not reach the bilge pump forward in the lazarette. There is an unusual noise from the HVAC system to starboard in the engine room, the captain stated that it has always existed. There is light corrosion and salt crystals on motors and pumps in the engine room, most significantly on the hydraulic pump to starboard. There is fluid by the bow thruster.

Summary: Good

Holding: Plastic holding tank center aft in crew quarters bilge, unknown capacity, deck fitting to port forward of cockpit, marked “waste”, deck fitting starboard forward of amidships, marked “waste”, plastic tank in forward bilge, 200 gallon capacity *

Comments: The fuel system including the tanks, fill, vent, feed and return lines was visually inspected as installed. There is minor staining in the generators’ Racor filter bowls. There was a trace fuel odor about the tank in the owner’s cabin bilge. Where visible the fuel system components are in satisfactory condition. 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 crew refrigerator’s ice tray filled with water when it was turned on. There is no hot water pressure at the cockpit sink. There is corrosion on the top and sides of the water tank, including small accumulations of “rust”. There is moisture on top of the water tank. The water tank capacity placards indicate 392 and 400 gallons. The port water fill hose is cracked. There are numerous severely cracked hoses, most of which appear to be drains. Cracked hoses include the flybridge sink drain, one to starboard in the waste treatment room, two by the port engine’s muffler, one in the port forward corner of the engine room, one between the port generator exhaust water separator and the blower, one to starboard of the engine room door, two outboard of the starboard generator and a seawater supply hose from the through hull to the strainer serving the seawater washdown in the forward bilge. The windshield wipers hoses are aged and failing. The accuracy of the tank level gauges is beyond the scope of this survey.

Comments: The electrical system including the shore power cord, shore power inlet, batteries, wiring, circuitry components and circuit protection equipment was visually inspected and most components were tested. The vessel has an Octoplex system which controls most of the electrical components. The relays controlled by the Octoplex screens serve as switches and the over current protection is not traditional distribution panels. Overall the electrical system is in good condition. The condition and age of the batteries is beyond the scope of this inspection. The batteries all appear to be vintage June 2017. The battery boxes are larger than the batteries and the batteries are not well secured. There are several unused small diameter wires by the batteries, many of these are used on other batteries for temperature senders. The refrigerator is apparently inoperative. The Furuno RD30 devices in the crew cabin and owner’s cabin are inoperative. We did not test all HVAC units in both cold and heat modes. Several lights were inoperative including two forward in the engine room, cockpit courtesy lights, one in the forward bilge, and one bulb in the port spotlight. The starboard spotlight did not energize. The new Octoplex controllers have more option than older controllers. The pneumatic door between the saloon and the aft deck is inoperative. We tripped the dock circuit breaker twice when testing the oven with the HVAC units energized. The ship’s vacuum is inoperative. The center windshield wiper is inoperative. The GFCI outlet forward in the forward bilge space was tripped and would not reset. One of the 50 amp shore power cords has a burnt connector.

The vessel is a composite fiberglass motor yacht equipped with two diesel engines and two diesel generators. The vessel was designed by Ed Monk and built in Taiwan. The current owner purchased the vessel in June 2017 in Florida and had the vessel shipped to Ensenada, Mexico and delivered to San Diego, CA. The current owner has upgraded the vessel with electronics including a Garmin package and Yacht Controller, the davit ram was rebuilt, the anchor and 400’ of chain were added and new interior and exterior furniture upholstery and carpet was installed in 2018. Underwater lights were added in January, 2019 when the bottom as painted at Shelter Island Boatyard. At the same time the boot stripes were painted, the shaft seals and rudder seals were replaced. A new windscreen and flybridge enclosure were installed in 2020. The owner’s captain disclosed the seawater washdown pump in the forward bilge is inoperative and the central vacuum is inoperative. The machine systems are original. Three groups of cracks on the starboard hull side are attributed to the prior owner’s dock in Florida and damage which occurred as a result of the vessel hitting three pilings for the dock. The vessel was inspected while afloat, underway in San Diego Bay, and while hauled. The vessel is basically structurally and mechanically sound. The vessel is actively and well- maintained. Except for the extensive hull side and gelcoat cracking the vessel is in good – excellent condition. Upon completion of the recommendations the vessel should be suitable for its intended purpose as a coastal cruising vessel, primarily limited by its fuel capacity.

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.

These recommendations are the surveyor’s ideas and suggestions for addressing deficiencies with damaged or suspect components or systems found during survey or general improvements. The primary recommendations address safety items, structural issues, operational issues or deficiencies which the surveyor determines are of greater importance or more expense than secondary deficiencies. For instance, items that pose a risk to passenger safety or immediate property damage are listed under primary deficiencies and cosmetic concerns are addressed under secondary deficiencies. Most of the recommendations have been addressed in the comments and usually they are
discussed at the time of the inspection.


1. Maintain the fire extinguishers per NFPA recommendations including the fixed and portable extinguishers. Extinguishers should be inspected and tagged annually and inspected by a qualified technician or replaced every six years.
2. Provide federally required, current and approved distress signal flares.
