Sixteen Tons is ex “Dos de Trebol”. When this owner purchased her he made several additions and changes. The former stern dinghy garage was converted to stowage (they wanted a larger dinghy that is now stored on deck). For extra comfort he included a drinks fridge, ice-maker, TV’s, music and wifi.
In May the yacht will be lifted in Badalona for her annual service and antifoul, and the liferaft will be serviced. The yacht benefits from constant maintenance by her crew.
