"Hiatus" is an extremely well-found inshore or offshore cruiser. She was significantly upgraded in 2012 for what was to be an extended worldwide cruise and she is ready to go with new owners. The cockpit is aft and has a new dodger and bimini. There is a complete suite of Raymarine instrumentation at the helm on a stainless steel bow, rebuilt compass, calibrated in 2012. The primary winches are electric, Lewmar Ocean 50's, which are also used to hoist the AB 3.6 (12') with Eurohelm and 30 hp. electric start, Tohatsu power tilt outboard motor up on the stainless steel Well's Marine arch/ davits. Photovoltaic solar panels totaling 420 watts are mounted on the arch and provide power to the house bank (880 amp.hrs.) through a Morningstar MPPT controller. With the Spectra 180 gpd water maker, a couple could cruise almost indefinitely.


Forward is the V-berth with a "pie" shaped wedge on centerline that can be easily removed if you wanted two single berths. The port side has a workbench under the cushions and the starboard side has storage under for the new, 2012, suite of sails not on the Profurl roller furling systems above. Moving aft, the port side has the head/shower and to starboard a hanging locker and lots of drawer space. The head door also closes off the main salon so Hiatus can be broken into 3 discreet staterooms. Aft of this bulkhead to port a U shaped dinette with foldable table that has space inside for storage. A Sig Marine diesel fired heater is also aft of this bulkhead with bookshelves. To starboard, bookshelves and a settee with chart table just aft of the settee.
