CURRENT SURVEY AVAILABLE. There are two heads. The forward head is in a hideaway-cabinet in the V berth cabin. This head is manual. The other head is in the aft stateroom. That head is electric.The vessel has four cabins. The v berth is a single bed or garage, with storage underneath the bed and a large locker with over/under storage. A small sink with running water and the before-mentioned head.

The mid cabin has two pull-out beds that make for great seating or sleeping. There is plenty of storage, with two forward-lockers with over/under storage. There is additional storage port and starboard, along both beds.

The pilot house cabin has the helm and electronics.

Engine access is directly under the pilot house floor. It features a wrap-around settee with a double-leafed table. The heater, standup refrigerator, and stove are located here, as well as a double freshwater sink with tons of storage, and counter space. In addition, there is a television and DVD player. The TV can accommodate all current forms of peripheral entertainment options. In the pilot cabin are the VHF and FM radios.

The Aft cabin has a double bed that has an actual custom cut mattress. It also features a standup shower and freshwater sink in the aft berth. There is a Ram mount for a laptop or iPad. The SSB is also located in this area.

The inside of TQT sports beautiful hand carved teak from bow to stern. Hand carved Teak doors and fitings throughout. Teak walls lockers and with painted accents. All teaks has been taken down to bare wood. Special care has been taken to make sure the hand carved doors and other areas have not lost detail. The floors have been sanded with dents and dings being addressed. All has been redone in gloss varnish, or epoxy, depending on application.

The refrigeration, heat and stove, are all propane driven. This is one of the reasons why a larger battery bank is unnecessary. Two full size portable propane tanks are located in the aft starboard lazarette. The stove is gimbaled, with three burners and an oven. The heater is a Dickenson wall mounted unit. The refrigerator is a Norcold 120/ propane upright with icebox.The water heater is a 5 or 6 gallon 120 V engine-driven heat exchange. However it was removed since it was nonfunctioning, and the vessel price accommodates the lack of this item.

The electronics package on TQT was updated in 2016. All components are Raymarine. The Multifunction display, Digital Radar and Depth sounder/Fish finder are the newest parts of the system. The MFD is installed at the inside-steering-station. We personally use an Ipad, via Wifi, to the outside steering station. TQT has hydraulic steering to accommodate the inside and outside helms talking to each other. This is a passive system that requires very little attention and is extremely reliable. Additionally the system does not overwork the installed autopilot. This allows the autopilot to keep up in almost any sea state. The autopilot installed also has a hand held controller, allowing one to steer the vessel from anywhere aboard.The sail instruments are virtually bulletproof. They are legacy equipment and in excellent shape mounted outside within view of the outside pilot station. The depth sounder will sound to 999’ at the outside station, and 1200’ plus on the MFD. While a fish finder on a sailboat sounds peculiar, it allows one to determine the bottom when setting the hook. It is very helpful in unfamiliar anchorages.

The Electrical system is very simple, and this vessel is low power consuming. It currently has two 8D lead acid batteries that were replaced in 2016. A third battery is installed for start. There is a charger installed for these batteries. Additionally she sports a single 100 W flexible solar panel, with charger controller, that is capable of significant expansion if one prefers. With the updated electronics there is no need for any additional power. However, she has a Honda 2000 generator aboard that can be plugged in directly through the shore power cable outlet, if the need arises. All internal bonding wires have been gone through and replaced as necessary.
