MINISKIRT (ex-CHARDONNAY C) went through a very extensive, two year refit including a redesign in all areas of her deck layout, completed in 2011.  Her new transom boasts a fold down swim platform/boarding platform.  The only way to accomplish the extensive modifications to her cockpit was to cut the deck off and start over.  Now, her hardtop protects the recessed seating while still providing great views.  The two new steering stations provide both excellent visibility (windward and leeward) and full access to all necessary instrumentation as well as great accessibility to necessary winches.


Electrically, the boat was completely rewired, all new electrical panels were built and the new Atlas frequency converters installed.  Four new inverter/chargers were installed for a total of 14 Kw of inverter capacity.


All of the plumbing on the boat was also redone with CPVC.  A new Headhunter sanitation treatment plant was installed with five new Headhunter toilets.  All pumps on the boat were replaced with new.  A new AC and DC bilge system was designed and installed including an Arid dry bilge system.  All of the air conditioning system was redesigned and installed new.  Larger fiberglass drip trays were custom built and a make up air unit was installed.  Likewise, the refrigeration system on the boat was completely rebuilt with new compressors.  All of the hydraulic hoses on the boat were replaced and a new Max Power DC hydraulic pump set was installed.  Two new Maxwell vertical anchor windlasses were installed with new chain and a larger anchor on one side was installed.  A fire smoke alarm system, burglar alarm system and eight video cameras were installed.  A monitoring system for all of the boat was designed and installed with complete control throughout the boat.  All standing rigging on the boat was replaced as well as the running rigging.  All of the fuel transferring systems were done new with added filters and pump redundancies.  All new Headhunter fuel and water level gauge systems were installed.


All of the interior was completely refinished and new overheads were built.  All new appliances were installed as well as new audio/video equipment with a dedicated computer just for music and movies.


As a fiberglass yacht, with twin engines and bow thruster, and an incredible shoal draft of just 7'/2.2m, MINISKIRT is not just redundant, but a yacht that can access areas no other sailing yacht can even approach!
