Also located in the engine room is the Eskimo ice chipper, engine room closed circuit camera and the Sea Recover Aqua Whisper water maker that provides the conversion of salt water into pure fresh water free of any calcium or salt. No spots from a wash down with this water and a must for Bahamas cruising where water is typically 35 cents per gallon or more.
From all indications, Blue Energy has been well taken care of over the years. Her interior and exterior are clean and neat. The decor is tastefully done and non-intrusive. With the 1000 HP MANs, her cruise speed is acceptable by today's standards.
With fresh interior including Audio Visual, Carpet and Galley Flooring and Window Treatments the Interior is perfect.
The bottom was recently painted and all fluids changed, completely professionally detailed and lovingly cared for by fastidious owners with an eye for detail. This couple has put both heart and soul in taking this vessel to the next level. Why spend $1m+ for Sport Fish that looks like this one.
