?Preliminary Specification.  Updated photos and more information to come.

"Impetus" was custom built for a very knowledgeable owner and is the finest example of the 95' Inace Explorer built to date.  She had a demanding design specification with extensive custom details in the layout and storage and only top quality equipment and systems were used throughout the vessel.  

 "Impetus" has the room and feel of a much larger vessel and is extremely sea-kindly and efficient.  She can accommodate 8 owners/guests in 4 staterooms when the skylounge is in VIP Stateroom mode and 3 crew in the 2 crew quarters.  Her large sky lounge has the versatility to be used as a 4th queen VIP stateroom, an office, workout area or home theater.  Her custom cherry interior was designed by Kirschstein Design and features arched doors and extensive use of burled wood inlays.  The flybridge is massive and has a full size hot tub, gas BBQ, full bar, large dining table and very comfortable forward navigation seating.  "Impetus" was designed and built to be highly reliable, comfortable and low maintenance.  Extensive use of stainless steel, granite and other design elements creates a "yacht feel" while reducing man hours in brightwork and other non-essential upkeep.  She is fully equipped for world cruising with an extensive navigation system, a huge amount of storage and room for lots of toys including a Mini Copper.   

 "Impetus" is a proven Explorer with several trans-Atlantic crossings, trips to Alaska and a rounding of the horn of South America.  She was built to ABS and MCA class and is current in both classes.  "Impetus" is a one owner vessel and has never been chartered.

Two (2) Caterpillar engine models 3406 DITA, 450 BHP @ 1,800 RPM, 24V electric start. Each engine has a “Racor” fuel filters, Mod. 75-900 MA dual filiter. Each filter can run the system and you can switch between the filters while the engine is operating. The filters have drip trays under them for ease of cleaning and are easily seen during engine room inspections.  Each engine has it's own starting bank consisting of 2 8D batteries. The main engines start batteries can be paralleled. The main engine starting banks can be charged via a charger or an alternator. The engines have the deep crank case oil pans which allow for oil changes every 500 hours and are easily accessible from all sides. 

Twin Disc quickshift MGX 5114 DC reduction gearS with a 3:50:1 ratio connected to 4" stainless shafts with 5 blade propellers.  There are manual shaft breaks on each shaft.  The quick shift allows for excellent low speed control and smooth shifting with no vibration. 

Kobelt control system with shiftiers  in the wheelhouse and fly bridge. There are also shift controls on the Kobelt SPA 10590 remote walk around with plug in stations on fore deck, wheelhouse and aft deck which allows you to control from either wing station and on the aft deck. The remote control also has helm, bow and stern control. The length of cord will allow you to move along either wing station and to even control the boat from the dock when stern to. This is very handy in the med when other vessels are leaving and pulling anchors. There are two remote controls one with a long cord and one with a short cord. There are direct manual control take overs in the engine room. 

Two (2) Caterpillar 30 kw gen sets with sound shields, 24 volt starter and vibration mounts. Each gen set has 1 "Racor fuel filter, model 900, this uses the same filter cartridge as the main engines. The filter has a vacuum gauge.  The filters have drip trays under them for ease of cleaning and are easily seen during engine room inspections. Each gen set has it's own starting bank consisting of 2 8D battery. The gen set start batteries can be paralleled. The generators banks can be charged via a charger or alternator.
The gen sets are easily accessible from all sides.
240/120 Volt 60 cycle 3 phase system. 
The panel is fed by 2x 100 amp shore cords with Glendening system and two Cat generators 
The shore power is fed through a 40 KVA Atlas power conversion system.
The main panel is a split buss system which allows you to run the ship off of one or two cords, one or two gen sets or a combination of them. The generators are sized so that one set can run the vessel under normal use. There is a ground monitoring system integrated into the panel. 

The system is backed up by a Trace 4000 inverter system which is fed from a 10 8D battery bank (house system). The bank can be charged via the inverter or the main engines. The inverter feeds selection of house services including all of the refrigerators and  freezers on the vessel, selected lights and power outlets through out the vessel. The inverter allows you to go dead ship for over 72 hours giving you the ability to shut down all systems when at anchor or dock and leave the vessel for shore excursions secure in the knowledge that basic systems are operating and all food is being kept to temperature. Should you lose gen power while at sea you have a extended amount of time to bring systems back on line while still operating on selected AC  power systems. 

The DC panel is separate from the AC panels.
All pump controls are remote located in there own control panels. 

A Alfa Laval Model MIB 303 fuel cleaner is integrated into the fuel transfer system and mounted on a drip tray. All fuel can be transferred through the Alfa Laval from and to all tanks. The Alfa Laval system can be set up on long trips to draw fuel from the two main tanks (4000 gal each) to feed the day tank, the day tank will then over flow back to the main tanks to create a continually circulating system of clean fuel and assures you that your day tank is always cool and full. The day tank holds 980 gals and will supply fuel for 44 hours at cruising speed. This allows you to transfer fuel every 24 hours and still have a 20 hours in reserve. The Day tank is set between the main fuel tanks and surrounded by fuel on 3 sides.  The fuel in the larger tanks acts as a heat sink to help keep the fuel in the day tank cool and at a constant temperature for maximum efficiency of the engines.  The fuel transfer value system is easy to use and there is a tray mounted above it for storage of small items.

There are a total of 5 fuel tanks which include: two main tanks and a day tank in the engine room and also a mid tank and a forward tank.  Fuel can be transferred using a 120 vt high speed pump, the Alfa Laval or a 24vt back up pump. 

All fuel tanks have two ways of reading them, manually via a sight tube or pull tape or via the integrated tank monitoring system. There are no hoses used in this system other then for vibration isolation. 

There are two sea chests consisting of two 6" steel pipes the tops of which are above the waterline. There is a 6' CuNi cross over pipe that is fed from both or either of the stand pipes.  The stand pipes can be isolated from the cross over pipe. The vents for the stand pipes lead up to the main deck level; they do not discharge back into the engine room. Each stand pipe has a compressed air blow down and the top can be removed underway to clean the primary filter in each pipe. There is also a grate on the outside of the vessel that can be removed for cleaning. All raw water consumers have their own secondary filters located near the equipment. The stand pipes are sized that each one can supply the full needs of the vessel with 30% blockage. All sea water piping is CuNI other then hoses are used for vibration separation. All piping is welded and flanged.  There are no hoses used in this system other then for vibration isolation.

There are two independent bulge systems, a 120vt 5 hp pump and a 24vt light de-watering system. The 120vt system has pickups in each of the watertight compartments.  The systems piping is copper with PVC foot valves. The fire pump is interlinked with the bilge system to act as a back up.There are high water alarms by each of the pick ups. 
The system can be fresh water flushed after periodic testing.  There are no hoses used in this system other then for vibration isolation.

Black water system: 600 gal tank
All heads in the vessel are Head Hunter. The system is plumbed with sch 40 pvc 11/2" pipe to assure that over the life of the vessel no odors can emanate from the piping. A white sanitary rubber hose is only used to make the connection between the pipe and the head. The heads run to a 400 gal black water tank. The discharge pump is a 230vt diaphragm pump, the pump is interlinked to an identical black water pump as a back up. The tank can be discharged over board or through a deck fitting. The tank has a wash out system integrated into it allowing for it be maintained to a high level without frequent openings.   The system is fed by twin fresh water pumps from the portable water system. There are P traps on all lines leading into the tank.

All lavatories, showers and tubs gravity feed to the gray water tank via schedule 40 PVC ,1 1/2" pipe. The galley sink with garbage disposal can be directed directly over board or to the tank. The tank is discarded via a diaphragm pump. The pump is inter linked with the black water pump, it is discharged below the water line.There are P traps on all lines leading into the tank. There are no hoses used in this system other then for vibration isolation.

The system consists of two (2) 120 gal tanks integrated into the hull. The system has a two (2) Overdorfer 24vt pumps, one each for the clean oil system and dirty oil system. The system can drain and fill the main engines and generators.  

Aqua Air Alpha Series with 3  4 ton capacity chillers with Temp wise 2000 controllers in each room. No fan coil units are mounted in overheads. All units are deck mounted in individual secondary drip pans that cover the entire area of the unit. Both the standard and the secondary drip pan drain lines discharge into the gray water tank, There is a air handler in the engine room. NO fan coils drain into the bilges. The main chiller unit in the engine room is also mounted on a secondary drip pan. There are no hoses used in this system other then for vibration isolation.

There are no hoses used in this system other then for vibration isolation.

The bow thruster is 85hp in a 16" tube and the stern thruster is 35hp. The thusters are driven off of the 2x hydraulic  pumps mounted on the transmissions via electric clutches. The system is sized that it will provide full power to the bow thruster and stern thruster at idol. 
The bow and stern thrusters can be controlled at the wheelhouse helm, flybridge helm, remote plug in SPA 10590
control station for port and starboard wing stations and at the stern plug in control station. 
The system also feeds the Quantum Marine integrated power management system and feeds the Quantum Maglift stabilizers, crane and windlasses. There is also a 220vt Ac hydraulic pump that feeds the Quantum power system. 

The system is Kidde-Fenwal  automatic system with Audible and visual alarm located in the engine room and bridge. There is a manual release on the aft deck. The system shuts down the air and fuel system.  The system is class and  US coast guard complaint. There is a 220vt AC Fire pump that is backed up by the AC bilge system. The fire pump provides water to fire stations in the engine room and on the main deck port and stb. The hoses are sized to cover all areas of the vessel.
There are 25 portable fire extinguishers throughout the vessel as required by class.  

Center line on the engine room there is a work bench with tool chest under and fresh water sink. 
All major equipment has lift point mounted above them for full service and rebuild in place. The engine room door from the deck is over sized to allow all major equipment can be removed via the stair way. 

A great deal of attention was paid to the sound and vibration control.  
The engine room has a number of sound control systems and design features in place. The forward bulkhead between the engine room and the master cabin is a dual bulkhead creating a 1m deep fuel tank system. This provides double sound bulkheads and the fuel acts as a sound deterrent. 
All steel in the engine room except the bilge is coated with "Dum dum" a vibration, sound and moister barrier.  A lead foam insulation was then installed and followed by a aluminum sound barrier finish. Above the engine room on the saloon sole there is another layer of "Dum dum" and then a sheet of lead glued to it then foam and carpet. 

The master stateroom aft bulkhead also has a lead foam  barrier.

The main engines and all reciprocating  equipment are soft mounted, pumps are soft mounted in catch trays which are again soft mounted. There are flexible connections between the equipment and fixed piping.
The lazarette is aft of the engine room and can be accessed via the engine room or a deck hatch.
There is an additional freezer and extensive storage.
Glendening cable master system 
The main steering pumps are located here and have short runs to the dual rams. Each of the rams can be valved off in case of a frailer the system can be run on one ram.
There are lift points above the rudder posts which extend above the water line allowing you to remove the rudders in the water. The rudders are off set so the shafts can be removed without dropping the rudders. There are lift points on the hull above the propellers to assist in removal and replacement in the water.  

Impetus is fully equipped with spares for long distance cruising.  There are extensive spare parts of equipment, main engines and gen sets aboard. 



Windlasses and Ground tackle
2x Muir 6000 hydraulic windlasses 
One 440 pound CQR type anchor
One  550 pound navy style anchor
Each anchor has 400' of 5/8  stud link high test chain
There are stainless chain lap guards on the deck  with integrated drains and a stainless rub guard on the stem.

The CQR runs centerline forward on the main deck and clears the bulb when dropped or retrieved under normal conditions. The Navy anchor is mounted in a anchor pocket on the port side with the chain running through a 6" stainless tube. This give While both types of anchors work well in a broad spectrum of bottoms this system gives you the choice to pick the best anchor for the bottom as your primary holder, hard sand, better to use the CQR, soft mud like what is found in St Barths use the navy anchor. The fact that one anchor is running off the vessel from a higher position also means there is less of a chance of the chains rapping. The higher CQR is also much easier to run a snubbing line to. 

There are 2x port and stb large stainless cleats with two stainless line guides per side. 
Both anchors have an integrated fresh water wash down system. The chains are self stacking, the spurling tube is stainless and bell shaped and there is a minimum of 2' drop between the deck and the chain. There is easy access to the chain lockers from the forward crew quartered.   

The anchors can be controlled by deck switches, a plug in remote control on fore deck or from the wheelhouse.
There is a forward masts with enclosed steps that lead to a crows nest. The mast can be lowered using the crane to facilitate hauling using a travel lift. the mast holds navigation lights and flood lights to illuminate the fore deck and the boat deck. There is a  large 3000 pound Marquip crane with extended reach for off loading the Mini Cooper on center line. There are stairs on the Stb side that lead down to the large boat deck.  The deck is painted non-skid for safety and easy of up keep. The aft deck of the fore deck is is raise to water dripping onto the boat deck 
There is a raised toe rail around the fore deck capped with a polished stainless pipe, the stainless hand rail is set inside of the toe rail this allows the toe rail to act as a rub rail without effecting the hand rail. 

The boat is is 19'6" on center line and 22'9" wide on the inside of the bulwarks.
On the forward bulkhead there are two removable aluminum deck boxes and center line there is the main access to the crew quarters. There are three large round portlights 1 each in the captains cabin, crew cabin and crew lounge. To port and stb are stainless fender racks. There are port and stb gates with ladder connections for easy dock or tender access when loading or unloading.  There 2 stainless bars for hanging lines and other items.
On the port side is a 17' "Flexboat tender with 115 hp Yamaha out board. To stb is the location the Mini Copper when it is being carried aboard, the Mini Copper has a custom designed lifting and securing system. When the Mini is not on board there is a 15' "Flexboat" with 60 hp Yamaha on stb. 

There are hold points located on the forward bulwarks and the front of the Portuguese bridge to rig a a full size awning to cover the boat deck. It can either run over the boom of the crane or the cane can be used to "tent" it. This creates a vast shaded area for servicing tenders and toys or just as another lounge or party area.
To port aft in front of the house is a "at sea" pet rest area with stainless bed, stainless rim, large over size drain that leads directly over board. There is a fresh water outlet and a compressed air outlet directly above it.
There are two deck prisms port and stb of center line aft that provide natural light into the "hers" tub/shower and "his" shower.  The deck is painted non-skid for safety and easy of up keep. The covered side decks have teak over steel. There are two over sized cleats port and stb the aft cleat is dead amidships for ease of use when maneuvering to the dock. There is a center line escape hatch from the lower guest cabin corridor.
