Broker's Comments

JEWEL is a powerful blue water cruising yacht built of aluminium with a fabulous deck saloon the size of which you would normally expect to find on an 80 footer and interior steering. She has a high gloss teak interior with great accommodation for her owners and 4 guests, as well as potential for separate crew accommodation forward if required.   She has a spacious cockpit, twin wheels and a splendid engine room.  After build in 2005, she was substantially refitted in the USA in 2009.  She is now available following a refit at Berthon Boat Company.  Work undertaken includes –


New teak decks to ring deck and cockpit.  This is a 12mil Moody Teak decking systems deck.  After the removal of the original deck, the aluminium subdeck was repaired and re-faired in some areas where corrosion was apparent.  Any damage to the Awlgrip paint system on the gutters or superstructure was rectified.


The mast was unstepped, undressed and the rod rigging was NDT tested.  This testing revealed wear to the D4 rod which was replaced.  The rig was then cleaned and reassembled.


The rudder was dropped for inspection.   It was drained of water and sealing bungs fitted.   It was primed, undercoated, repainted and refitted to JEWEL.


The exterior varnish work was refinished and the toe rail was stripped and left in a natural condition to match the new teak deck.  


The Maxprop was serviced and burnished.


All seacocks were thoroughly serviced.


Small repairs were made in the main bilge where there was some local corrosion around the mast step area.


JEWEL is now good to go and her new owner will benefit from this remedial work as well as stunning new decks.
