December 2002 haulout
The swim platform was doubled to twice its original size.
The all new control panel.
With her dark blue hull, she got so hot in the mediterranean sun, (much drier than her former home in Florida), her planks would move and seams opened. We decided to paint her white and the problem was solved.
First 2006 Spring cruise.

General Info

 
Blue Moon is based in Palma, Majorca Island in the Balearics, Spain. Is powered by a Ford Lehman Dagenham 6D330 (or model 590E) which delivers, depending on the different informations I found from 86.5 BHP to 105BHP. This engine was the predecessor of your 120's and it's only 330 CI instead of the 360 CI of the 120. The way to identify it, is looking at the injection pump which is driven by an external shaft. From the pump end towards the rear of the engine, there's another shaft driving the raw water pump. As you can see in the pictures, the hull was dark blue when I bought the boat but I decided to paint her white to reduce the temperature. The planks opened up at the seams when hot. I have a Raymarine radar, log, depth finder and autopilot, Garmin 182C GPS, DCS radio, Navtex and a portable VHF radio. I replaced the original propane range by an electrical range. Also the original toilet by a vacuflush unit. Extended the swim platform and rewired all the electrical systems, (12v, 110v and 220v). Fixed the genset, a 3,5Kva diesel single piston unit and built a new control panel. This winter I'll do all the brightwork as well as paint the whole boat again. Any questions about the boat or this beautiful archipielago of the Balearic Islands, please do not hesitate to contact me at o.segura@mail.com.
