Deck and Hull
The ballast system controls seawater flows from the ocean to and from the port and starboard ballast tanks, and between the port and starboard tanks. Each tank holds 10,550 pounds of sea water. A goal of the system is to provide simplified operator selection of the eight possible flow options: flow to and from the ocean from either ballast tank (4 possibilities) and flow between either tank either by gravity or by pumping (4 possibilities). Operating controls are located at each helm and on the ballast control box in the engine room.
Three pumps and eight valves are used. Both the main and donkey engines have power – take-off pumps. A third pump powered by the yacht’s primary hydraulic system is also provided.
The ballast control box receives commands from the operator selection switches and translates the commands into appropriate valve and pump actuations. Individual toggle switches are also provided on the cover of the ballast control box in the engine room to allow independent manual operation of any valve or pump.
Note that the helm commands to transfer water between ballast tanks via gravity do not require use of a pump. Such transfer is achieved simply by directly opening the two (fore and aft) gravity transfer valves via their two Valve Relays. It is, of course, the heel of the yacht that determines flow direction.

AANDEEL (ex-SLEIGHRIDE) is an outstanding high-performance custom carbon fiber sloop is very suitable for luxury cruising or competitive racing.
She was originally built by Goetz-Derecktor in carbon fiber, designed by Sparkman & Stephens as a fast-powerful day-sailor. The current owner purchased her and had her shipped to Westerly Marine where she underwent a two-year complete $3 million dollar major refit and re-launched in 2013.
She features three staterooms, two heads, a large salon and fully-equipped galley. Her large cockpit accommodates 16 guests comfortably. At the twin helm station, all sail controls can easily be handled.
Her transom garage can easily handle a RIB, kayaks or paddleboards. When the transom door is open it functions as a beach with a swim ladder.
She is a joy to sail and she is easily managed by a crew of two. Most sailing activities can be achieved singlehanded. All sail handling is achieved via powered hydraulic sailing systems and winches. The fully battened mainsail furls into a carbon fiber boom, new in 2013. The headsail is self-tacking with power furling. When sailing in above 15 true knots there is an outstanding water balance system that smooths the boats motion and adds comfort to your guest and maximizes her upwind performance.
This extraordinary yacht is in excellent condition and needs to be inspected to fully appreciated her high-tech sailing technology and her ease of sailing shorthanded.
