Refit Works

Sixteen Tons is ex “Dos de Trebol”. When this owner purchased her he made several additions and changes. The former stern dinghy garage was converted to stowage (they wanted a larger dinghy that is now stored on deck). For extra comfort he included a drinks fridge, ice-maker, TV’s, music and wifi.

Topsides on this Yacht are painted on a two coat system. This is the base plus a clear topcoat.
The top clear coat was resprayed “rebarnizado del casco" in 2014, providing extra brightness to the black topside.

The yacht benefits from constant maintenance by her crew.
