Outfitting an Outremer 59 5X
An Outremer 59 5X travelled from Florida to Maine this summer to tackle several significant projects. The GIBY team addressed an extensive summer punch list – performing over 200 hours of work – to bring the boat up to its new owner’s specifications. During the visit, the new boat owner worked closely with the GIBY team to fine-tune the work scope.
Doorway heights were raised to improve overhead clearances; sliding doors were hung to improve use of interior space; the bonding system was updated to eliminate stray current; new B&G electronics were installed at the nav station and helm; the solar array was upgraded; locker storage rods were fabricated and installed; the davits were repaired and painted Jet Black; new tender hoisting lines were spliced; the rig and steering systems were inspected; and an audio/video camera was installed to improve blind-spot views of in-water activity at the bow. The genset and heater were also serviced, while hatches were rebedded and cabinets and shelving were modified.
