Gray water collection/movement: Three Headhunter sumps (crew, guest and engineers) for transfer to black water tank or directly overboard via Y-valve. Westport construction includes primary AC pump and DC back-up pump with strainer, inspection port and alarm on DC pump.

Black water lift station: A Headhunter sump for the galley and crew galley for transfer to the black water tank.

Compressed Air System

The vessel will have a compressed air system for powering the ship’s whistle, gasoline dispensing pump and oil dispensing pump, the fuel valves, as well as for use in the machinery spaces for air powered tools. The system consists of compressor, piping system, quick connect fittings, and (3) accumulator tanks.

Quick Connect Fittings: Located; FWD escape hatch, Port Swim Step, Exterior Bar (port side) on Pilothouse deck and Flybridge Mast Leg (stbd) in storage locker.

Accumulator tanks: 3 - 10-gallon units, 2 in the Engine Room and 1in the stbd. Flybridge mast leg storage locker.

Hose/Reel: Reel Craft - Hose ½” x 35’

Compressor: Kaeser 5hp SX-6

Bilge System

The bilge system consists of five watertight bilge compartments which carry alarms for the presence of water and are monitored electronically. In the Engine Room and Utility Room are 66 gpm AC bilge pumps. The water pumping Diesel engine, mounted in the Utility Room bilge (part of the firefighting system) can also be engaged for extreme bilge pumping capability.

Deck Drain System

All exterior decks are fitted with freeing ports and/or drains with a plumbed piping system. Deck drains are molded portions of the deck and fitted with polished stainless steel grates. All drain piping is of ABS approved materials, PVC – DWV and are led to laminated thru hulls located at the boot stripe with check valves and ball valves.

Fire Hydrant System

The fire main system consists of four fire stations and two pumps. Each station contains a hose, angle valve, and high/low volume nozzle. The primary electric fire pump can be started from any fire station or locally.

The interior of the ship is protected by sprinklers which draw from the ship’s fresh water supply. In the event the water supply is depleted, then without interruption, the system would revert to seawater use.

The engine room is protected by a gas smothering FM200 system.

Galley Hood Fire System

Independent, fixed system is located in the main galley in the hood above the stove.

Stabilizer System

Stabilization while underway is provided by a pair of fins located approximately amidships and powered hydraulically by a main engine driven hydraulic pump. Control is by modern digital ‘fly-by-wire’ system located in the pilothouse.

At rest stabilization: Zero speed stabilization is accomplished by two 22 sq foot stabilizer fins using a Model Naiad 525 Stabilizer system which is powered by the central hydraulic system via a generator.

Stabilizers were dropped in November 2021 for service. Hydraulics were serviced in Jan 2023.

HVAC System

The interior temperature of the vessel is maintained by a 30 ton capacity seawater cooled HVAC system from Marine Air. Air handlers of various BTU ratings are mounted behind cabinets and bulkheads throughout the vessel and are fitted with electric heating elements for autonomous heating for all accommodation, crew, and guest spaces. The HVAC system also provides fresh air make up to create a ventilated atmosphere.
