Reach has been extensively updated and maintained. We recently finished a two-year refit and were taking off for Central America and further long-term cruising when we found our plans changing. We had already left in December for the cruising, so Reach is literally ready to go because she has already left!

Some upgrades and modifications to Reach (several unique):

  • The fuel and water tanks have been replaced and designed and mounted to never cause trouble again.
  • The sterns have been extended 27” following the Manta 42 lines. They were designed with a bit more volume and power than the 42, and the steps were designed to be much more useable than the 40 - one step was removed, the lower two steps lengthened, and all step heights were evened to be the same.
  • The main beam and wing bulkheads were doubled in thickness and fully capped with fiberglass. This is a stiff boat.
  • 2017 new standing rigging up-sized to 7/16”. The original T-ball fittings were removed and tangs were thru-fit and welded to take standard rigging toggle and eye fittings. All chain plates were replaced. Deployable intermediate stays were added with new deployable running backstays.
  • 2017 new running rigging. All halyards (main, spare main, jib, spinnaker) are either Dyneema or Vectran. Reef lines are spectra.
  • The Main and Jib are new made by Mack Sails 2016. The Doyle Code 0 on a Facnor continuous furler is from 2008, but has only been used a few times.
  • New mainsail and jib covers
  • 2017 new larger and higher-performance elliptical rudders designed and
    professionally built by Foss Foam
  • 2017 new 3-blade Flex-O-Fold props.
  • Saildrive main boot seals replaced last year, along with the prop shaft seals, and
    the input shaft seals. The prop shafts were sleeved.
  • The front and rear engine crankshaft seals were replaced on both Volvo MD2030
    engines last year.
  • 2018 new engine mounts on engines
  • 2018 new engine start batteries
  • A serpentine belt kit is installed on the stbd engine with a Balmar 120A externally
    regulated alternator. The port alternator is a 60A and externally regulate
  • dNew shift and throttle cables, and spare cables ran in place for quick connection/
  • 30 gal/hr CruiseRO watermaker with 2 new (uninstalled) membranes
  • 2017 new Garhaur adjustable rigid boom vang with dyneema control line
  • 2017 new 300’ Maggi G4 high test chain.
  • Current NMEA 2000 integrated electronics (all current equipment, some brand
    new) including Simrad autopilot and control head, (3) B&G Triton multifunction instrument displays, Furuno chart plotter and 4kW radar, multiple GPS’s, Maretron ultrasonic wind, and depth and speed.
  • 2018 new OGM LED tricolor/anchor/strobe nav lights
  • 2018 new Raritan Elegance fresh water electric heads with Smartflush controls in both heads. Both are also plumbed to use salt water if wanted.
  • 2018 new freezer evaporator plate
  • Recent full upholstery with Ultra Leather Brisa

Now other than, all of that new or improved stuff, Reach also has:

  • 5.5kW NextGen generator with 800hrs on original engine and 0hr on new electrical head (2018).

  • 3,000kW Victron inverter/charger (120A charger)
  • 700 watts solar with separate MPPT controllers and a spare (which is large
    enough to add another 400W of panels)
  • 2) spare Volvo folding props
  • (2) LED TV’s. Both accept direct plug in of hard drives for movies.
  • 55lb Rocna primary anchor and a spare aluminum Fortress anchor sized as
  • ICOM 710 SSB with remote head, ICOM 130 tuner, 28’ Whip antenna, and
    Pactor 3 modem.
  • Second SSG 235 tuner with long wire antenna. This was connected to a
