The Boat

“Two Oceans” Is a Voyage 380 design by Alex Simonis. She was built by Maxim Yachts of Durban south Africa in 2002 and is hull #25.

Unfortunately the boatyard is no longer operating. A pity! They really built good boats.

Here are some statistics:
Overall length:    11.5 m 37.7 ft
Waterline length:10.2 m 33.1 ft
Beam:                 6.27 m 20.5 ft
Draft:                  0.97 m 3.2 ft
Mast HT off WL  17.03 m 55.4 ft
Light boat weight 6000 kg 13200 lbs.

Sail area: Main 50 sq.m
Jib    35 sq.m
1st Spi   95 sq.m
2nd Spi  125 sq.m

The boat is an “Owner Version”, with the owner’s cabin in the forward port hull and a large head/ shower aft. The starboard hull has two double cabins with a head between.
The saloon has a “U” shaped settee, a very good galley with a fridge and a huge freezer and the navigation corner.

In the tip of each hull we have single berths, intended to be used as lockers.

Engines: two Yanmar 3 GM 30, 27 HP each.
Tankage: fuel 2 x 66 gallons, water 2 x 66 gallons, 500 liters of each .
Electronics: Raymarine A65 chartplotter and ST 60 instruments with a repeater in the nav corner, ST 6000 and ST5000+  autopilots.
Electrical system: Starting battery for each engine with a regular alternator charging it, in addition each engine has a 150 amps alternator charging the battery bank made out of 6 twelve volt batteries with 600 amps capacity. There are also two solar panels, the specifications of which I still need to determine. All this is operated and monitored by Heart Interface Link 2000.

Dinghy: A new N.Z made R.I.B, with an 8 HP Yamaha outboard. There is a very clever arrangement for lowering and hoisting the dinghy by utilising the main halyard on a derrick that goes out of the boom.

Watermaker: PUR 160 E which is not operable right now.
