AGUA THERAPY delivered in 2006, a Hunter 45 Center Cockpit with a backstayless B&R rig and cockpit traveler arch.
Fitted with lots of extras most installed from new, Furlboom in boom furling. Bowthruster. A Fischer Pander generator, 2 Air conditioning split for cooling and heating. On deck 2 electric winches, a E120 and a E80 Raymarine chartplotter is fitted at the nav station. Raymarine Radar. Autohelm which handles her in the roughest weather. ICOM dsc radio with extra set in the cockpit. Gori folding prop.

There are 2 cabins one master with a queen size bed, shower and loo, the other forward v-berth with separate shower and loo.

We bought her after having had a power boat which was nice while it lasted but increasing fuel costs and wanting to relax more while going from A to B helped us make the decision to change to sailing. So now we have those big white flappy things to move us along.
Up to now she has served us well and kept us safe sailing around the Med, visiting many coastal resorts along the Spanish mainland, we did go to the Balearic islands a couple of times visiting Ibiza, Majorca and Formentera. We have been along the coast up as far as Barcelona ans south to the Costa del sol, we did pass Gibraltar on the way to Morocco into Smir and Melilla the Spanish enclave. We have been based in Cartagena, Spain for the last 3 years and have been making lots of improvements adding more equipment to continue our adventure further afield now Don is finishing working. We have added a cockpit cover and changed the cream covers with grey ones. Now we have added another arch which holds the solar panels and a cantilever system for the dinghy. Still work in progress, watermaker, SSB radio, bigger refrigeration a removable bowsprit for the cruising chute so we can sail downwind which is what we will be doing in the trade winds (hopefully), and many other odds and ends.
