The starboard engine was replaced in 2008 in Australia, and the port engine replaced in Turkey in 2009. Both were installed by licensed Yanmar dealers. Saildrive seals were replaced in Nov. 2014 at Lauderdale Marine Center by MultiTech.


S/Y Liahona was purchased at the St. Petersburg Boat Show in Nov. 2002 and delivered to Riviera Beach, FL for additional items to be installed: generator, air-conditioners, ice- maker, water-maker. She left USA waters for the Bahamas in January 2003 and sailed in the Western Caribbean for several years before going through the Panama Canal in 2006 to continue on a circumnavigation, which was completed in St. Thomas in Dec. 2010. Liahona stayed on the hard in Puerto Rico for several years while the owners were in the States for business reasons, and returned to the sea in 2012, sailing in the Eastern Caribbean to Antigua, then back to Belize, Isla Mujeres, and Key West, Marathon, and Ft. Lauderdale in 2013 and 2014.
