Hull length 41’ 11”
Waterline length 36’ 2”
Beam (width) 13’ 1” Waterline beam (width) 11’ 2”
Mast height from DWL 63’ 2”
Propeller and Shafting
The geared 3 fluted propeller and shafting is complete and well supported by an associated “P” bracket that is well secured to the hull.
Superstructure The superstructure is of cored fiberglass construction and is sound with good anti-slip qualities. There are a number of portals on the side of the structure that are correct with no indication of any ingress of water through the seals externally.
Upper Deck Hatches
All hatches are correct with fair seals and securing arrangements and are watertight. There is a small degree of stiffness in a number of hinge sections that may lead to stress on the associated securing points and hatch structure whilst the Plexiglas shows variable degrees of crazing and discoloration as expected in the Caribbean.
Guardrails and Pulpits.
Stainless steel safety wires run from both pulpits and are supported by well positioned and secured stanchions. The tubular stanchions are well secured into the heel fittings that are secured through the deck at and through the toe rail.
Mast and Rigging
The Standing Rigging was new in 2016 by FKG St Maarten with the Running Rigging replaced in 2017 by the same company. The vessel is sloop rigged with twin spreaders and a self-furling fore sail. The aluminum profile mast is stepped at the keel step with a collar sealing the superstructure. The general outline of the mast is straight with no indications of any distortion or indentations. All spreaders appear well fitted and secured to the mast. The vessel is fitted with numerous winches around the cockpit and mast that operate effectively with differing degrees of minimal movement on the vertical axis. Running Rigging
All viewable running rigging appeared in a fair to good condition with no indication of excessive wear on any of the working blocks, rope clutches, ball bearing cleats and rollers fitted to the port and starboard side of the canopy and are in working order. The vessel’s sail inventory comprises of well-maintained cruising rig and evidence is available showing continuous maintenance.
The engine is fitted centrally beneath the main cockpit with a single direct propeller shaft aft.

Access into the area is restricted but those sections of the structure that could be surveyed were found to be correct with clean bilges. Examination of the mounts found them to appear new and found the units to be well secured onto the longitudinal engine bearers whilst the engine appears to be in a well-maintained condition with correct water and oil levels. There is indication of the replacement of a new starter motor and refurbishment of the engine. All wiring and pipe work is well positioned and secured to the engine or adjacent structure with double hose clamps as necessary. Mechanical belts fitted to the engine are correctly tensioned and all piping and wiring is well secured away from moving parts.
Conclusion of the Surveyor
The internal and external examination shows a yacht of sound fiberglass construction with indication of continuing upgrading and refurbishment of fitting and equipment to maintain the yacht to an international standard. It is also evident that recent maintenance and repair work has been completed by skilled or knowledgeable persons and is still ongoing. Due to the internal upgrades and maintaining the yacht as an offshore cruising vessel in private ownership I would consider that the replacement value of the vessel, fittings and associated equipment to be in the region of US$95,000.00 before the addition of personal items. This report is a factual account of the examination of the vessel “Ocean Angel” and is given in good faith.
