Sixteen Tons is ex “Dos de Trebol”. When this owner purchased her he made several additions and changes. The former stern dinghy garage was converted to stowage (they wanted a larger dinghy that is now stored on deck). For extra comfort he included a drinks fridge, ice-maker, TV’s, music and wifi.
Topsides on this Yacht are painted on a two coat system. This is the base plus a clear topcoat.
The top clear coat was resprayed “rebarnizado del casco" in 2014, providing extra brightness to the black topside.
The yacht benefits from constant maintenance by her crew.
