Advertiser's comments

Moleoba III, which is her official name was made by Olympic Yachts in Athens, Greece in 1974.  From her chart inventory it appears that she was extensively cruised, from the west coast of Italy, up the east coast to Venice and down the old Yugoslavian coast line, before exploring some of the southern Greek Islands and some of the Turkish coast, before coming to rest in Samos.
In 1989, she was sold to two Austrian brothers. The engine was taken out of the boat, the cutlass bearing replaced and the shaft re-aligned. The whole of the hull was then re-epoxied and re-sprayed.  Moleoba then remained in the yard for the next 14 years before being bought by her current owner and fully refitted in 2003

Details of Refit

New teak cockpit hatches and chair and a cockpit platform, engine hatch.
A few of the platformboards in the compartment were replaced and a fresh intermediary step between the compartment sole and the first step out to the cockpit was made, as this seemed uncomfortably large.
The toe-rails on both sides of the yacht along with several deck fittings were removed, as these were suspected as having let in some water.  Remedial work was then undertaken and the fittings and toe rail were re-sealed and retailored.
The local rigger tailored a fresh furling unit and took away some 9 sails to be valeted. The No 1 Genoa needed to be sbeamly altered to fit the fresh foil. The main sail was tailored with fresh Lazy Bags and Lazy Jack unit.
A re-conditioned, Perkins Prima 50hp, diesel engine was bought locally and installed along with two 200ah unit batteries and two 90ah batteries for the engine start. These are charged as pairs by two apart alternators, a 90amp and 40amp alternator for each pair set.
The unit batteries, weighing 50kgs each, are located at the bottom of the forward compartment, bunks.
This gives the shortest run for the cabling to the mainstay winch, which is the biggest drain on the unit.
The weight in the engine, various basins and batteries are distributed evenly fore and aft as well as seaport and starboard, the fresh water basins are located beneath the two bar chairs.

The engine is tailored into the vessel backwards, connecting to a V navigate, in turn driving the propeller shaft out of the rear of the vessel. This is so the engine can be tailored under the cockpit and not located in the middle of the compartment.
It was mounted on thick rubber feet and connected to the V navigate with a universal joint.
New access hatches were trim into the side of the captain dock to allow easier access when changing the oil filter, and a blower, air fan was installed in the engine room compartment to extract hot air from around the engine.
All the wiring, plumbing, clips and ties were replaced throughout.
A hot water unit was installed, supplying hot water to the galley and shower in the quantity.  The clarifier was custom made and operates either from the engine heat or from a freshly installed A/C circuit when connected to sand potential.
It was decide that the shower along with the chain safe would drain into the main bilge and is extracted using a large automated and hand-operated bilge pump.
I am having a small hatch tailored into the deck of the vessel just forward of the mast, replacing the two small air vents.
This is to provide better air circulation to the quantity as it will now be tailored with a shower unit and will also allow more beam into the compartment.
An 80 litre dirty water basin was made and installed into the toilet plumbing unit.
Eight carbon fiber sea-cocks were made and tailored, as the mechanic didn’t like the look of the modern plastic ones and metal was too prone to electrolysis.
The original sea-cocks were removed when the body was re-epoxied and just screw quantity were now visible protruding from the body, marking their previous locations.
The original compressor for the fridge-freezer unit was past renovation so it was replaced.
