Basic Overview

(Currently lying Haslar Marina, Gosport, England)

She is fresh from completing a 12000 mile Atlantic circuit visiting West Africa, the Caribbean , the eastern United States and the Azores, and ready to go again tomorrow. Morvargh is an extremely seaworthy boat with 6mm thick hull and extensive standing rigging, yet no slow-coach either, managing 24 hour runs of 160NM (6.5Knot average).

All photos are taken 2015 or 2016.

We conducted an extensive refit before our journey with the following work performed in 2015:

  • Hull professionally blasted and painted below waterline
  • All standing rigging replaced
  • New suite of sails (One Sails,
  • New roller reefing units for genoa and staysail (replaced again spring 2017)
  • £10,000 professional electrics installation, with new domestic batteries, solar panel, inverter, engine starter motor, anchor windlass motor, Iridium go satellite hub (phone, sms, email and forecasting) and extensive rewiring. The solar panel provided more than enough power for the year without needing to use the engine.
  • New custom sprayhood and bimini (Dolphin Sails,
  • New custom-built 350L stainless steel water tank
  • Gas and diesel plumbing professionally replaced
  • New Rudder bearings
  • Interior of front cabin blasted, repainted, and rebuilt.
  • New liferaft, Danbuoy and life-rings (2015).

Ultrasound measurements of the hull taken in 2015 confirm no areas of less than 4mm (report available on request).
