BANYAN's owner, an experienced yachtsman, has made many significant upgrades to this lovely classic.  In 2009 a 14' extension was added to the hull which provided a cockpit, lazarette storage area, and BBQ.  New main C18 Cats were installed; the electrical system was revamped; new electronics, audio visual equipment, air conditioning and heating, plumbing, steering, bow & stern thrusters, and an updated anchoring system were fitted.

In the winter of 2015, BANYAN underwent another refit which included, in part, some of the following major work:

1)  Starboard engine overhauled:  rebuilt head, new pistons and liners, rebuilt turbos and rods, heat exchanger cleaned, water pump and filters renewed.  Zero hours as of 3/15/15.

2)  Bottom plating replaced from bottom of keel to 20" up and from the bow to 40' aft, including the water tanks.

3)  All thru-hull valves serviced and checked.  Those with stainless steel flanges retrofitted with Delron isolator kits.  (12) thru-hulls without flanges were replaced with polypropylene banjo valves.

4)  All fuel tanks cleaned and pressure tested.  Gray and black water tanks, pressure tested, sandblasted, and recoated.  New water tanks pressure tested and recoated.

5)  Naiad stabilizer fins dropped and major service work scheduled for April 2015.  Seakeeper gyro pumps serviced and relocated.

6)  Shaft logs reconditioned (coated plus new bearings and seals).  Engines realigned.

Details of refit, including photos and video, are available to be seen upon inspection of vessel.

The owner of BANYAN has taken every measure possible to assure that this yacht is in excellent mechanical and structural shape, as well as beautiful cosmetic condition.  Anyone looking for a classic yacht with up-to-date systems and a multitude of upgrades should seriously consider this superb offering.
