Engine Maintenance

The digital LCD hour meter has failed as so many of these do so we are conservatively estimating the hours at 1,500 however the boat has only been cruised in New England waters and a sailboat like this typically uses between 50 - 100 hours per season so the actual hours could be less.

The Engine has always been professionally maintained at one of the best marinas in this area. Annual maintenance includes: oil & filter change in the fall, gear oil change, bottom paint, zincs twice per year, normal winterizing & commissioning.

Owner Specified Service that is above and beyond typical:

New Impeller every year

New Belts Every Year

New Hoses every 4 years, Just done in 2017
