"Pacemaker" is a Ben Lexcen (Americas Cup fame) designed fast cruising yacht. Originally built to race, her owner has optimised her for fast, comfortable and easy single handed cruising. Sails are trimmed and raised at the helm with the assistance of a powerful 3 speed Barton electric winch and all controls are lead back to the cockpit. Her performance pedigree produces a yacht that is a pleasure to sail, being extremely well balanced and responsive to the helm.
In 2011 Pacemaker underwent a 5-month overhaul by Solidair at the Phuket Boat Lagoon. The hull was repainted with Awlgrip, a new pulpit installed, new stern tube & flush skin fittings fitted. To add to the comfort for tropical cruising a marine air-con system was added to the owner's cabin which is run by a Honda EU2000 Generator (not included).
NDT testing of the rod rigging was undertaken, and anything that needed repairing was, including re-glassing the new stern tube and the tip of the rudder. Chain plates were removed, checked and re bedded. New tables were fabricated along with an AC housing, engine cover etc.
The interior was repainted in 2013, and new engine mounts and flexible drive have been recently installed ensuring smooth & quiet motoring.
