You requested the inspection to establish its condition and value. The survey guidelines are provided, for t he most part, by the "N.F.P.A., and A.B.Y.C., Uni ted Stat es Coast Guard Standard s, and the “Code of Federal Regulations”, as published for pleasure yachts, and t he values guideli ne is the current edition of the “BUC” book along with current market condit ions. The survey of this vessel is based solely on a careful visual inspection of all accessible portions of it’s hull and equipment. Certain parts of the hull and structure can be inspected only by removing decking, liners, bulkheads and sheathin g. These areas were not inspected. It is my normal practice to conduct a survey which includes a sea trial. The sea trial enables me to make a determination concerning the engines and reduction gears. In order to make a proper inspection of these important components, they must be brought up to operating temperature and run under a load at RPM for a period of tim e. Inspection and operation of the engines was limited. General The vessel was built by the Wellcraft Marine Company of Sarasota, Florida, in 1989. The vessel is cu rrently registered and bears the Number RI 7965 K. The hull ID number is WELC5051J889 and is moulded into the transom . Pertinent dimensions of the vessel are: the LOA is 42' 10", the Beam is 14' 6", and the Draft is approximately 3' 2". The Displacement, according to the book is 25,000 pounds. Page 1 of 9 1989 Wellcraft San Remo 42 Express Cruiser "ELYSIUM" Hull and Structures The hull is a typical polyester laminate reinforced with fiberglass matt and woven roving in a modified deep Vee configuration. The freeboard finish is white gelcoat with stainless trim, and is in very good condition, overall, with just a few superficial mars and scratches. The hull - deck attachment is secure and reinforced. I was unable to locate any delamination or separating of glass, including the engine bearers and stringers. The bottom (sections below the water line) was sounded with a mallet and was found to be in good condition and has a proper coat of anti fouling paint just applied. The propeller shafts are in good condition as are the shaft logs, cutlass bearings and struts. The bronze three blade propellers are in good condition, Note photo on page ten. The rudder posts are secure and properly packed. The topsides, fore deck and all walkways, are also white gel coat and are in good condition. All through hulls are in good condition and their related valves are working properly. The vessel is equipped with an integral swim platform with attached stainless steel swim ladder. There is a stainless bow pulpit, and solid life rail which are properly installed, in good condition, backed, and secure. The entire deck was checked for excess laminate moisture and none was noted. All deck hardware is properly backed. The bridge weather enclosure (appears to be a recent upgrade) and related supports are in good, secure condition. All hatches and ports are in good condition and tight to the weather. Page 2 of 9 1989 Wellcraft San Remo 42 Express Cruiser "ELYSIUM" Main Cabin The main cabin houses the galley-dinette and salon. This area is spacious, nicely finished and in good condition. (The Photo at left indicates the removal of carp as new carpet is being installed). The jointer work is made up of plastic, some Teak, and for the most part, looks very good. The upholstered sections show average use, good care, and maintenance. The doors and ports are in good condition and tight to the weather. The overhead liner also appears in very good, clean condition.. The entire deck is plywood and is well supported. All deck supports were checked from below and all are secure. Lighting is good throughout the vessel. The dinette converts to sleep two adults. The entire interior area is in good condition and clean. Aft deck, and Bridge Operating Station The operating station is well designed and the controls are easy to operate. The upholstery is in very good condition overall. The compass is accurate on its present heading. The shifts and steering are also smooth operating and in good condition. Steering is hydraulic and the related lines are in good condition. There is a complete color keyed canvas enclosure, that covers the entire operating station and bridge area. The canvas enclosure, and supporting structure appear are in good serviceable condition. The bridge is equipped with stainless life rails which are secure and properly backed. Overall, the bridge, including the operating station and upholstery is in good. Page 3 of 9 1989 Wellcraft San Remo 42 Express Cruiser "ELYSIUM" Galley There is a two unit Compact 120/12 volt refrigerator / freezer and a Counter top electric stove, which were not tested, but appear in serviceable condition. The counter top in the galley is comprised of white Corian which is in good shape. There is a large stainless steel sink located between the stove and refrigerator in the galley area. The sink and its related faucets and over board drain are in good condition and clean. The sole in the galley and forward is also plywood an d is in good condition and secure. No rot was found in any deck timbers or supports. The galley is located a few steps forward and below the main salon and dinette. The galley, overall, is in good condition. Heads The heads (one forward and one in the master stateroom) are in good condition. The heads are equipped with showers, hand basins and an electric/manual Wilcox-Crittenden standard toilets. The shower units are an integral part of the inner liner. The shower stalls are good sized fiberglass enclosures. Each shower is equipped with a sump pump and overboard drain. There are macerator units, Y-gates, and ho lding tanks installed. The head plumbing is in good condition and conforms to A.B.Y.C. standards. Fire fighting and safety equipment Fire extinguishers and safety equipment on board include: Several Kidde BC size 0 dry chemical. Automatic FireBoy (out of Date) Adequate PFD’s (in good condition) A throw ring, Signal Flares, Whistle, Bell, and First Aid Kit were not noted Page 4 of 9 1989 Wellcraft San Remo 42 Express Cruiser "ELYSIUM" Berthing A large berth (Owners Stateroom) is located aft and down from the main Salon. This area is clean, nicely finished and upholstered. There is adequate lighting and ventilation in this area. The deck in this area is properly supported, and carpeted. The carpet is being replaced in this area. Otherwise this area is in very good condition. I was unable to locate any excess moisture on any surface in this aft cabin. This area also appears lightly used. The forward berth area (V-Berth), pictured at left, is also clean and in excellent condition. No fresh water leaks were noted in any berth area. Also, housed in the Vberth area are several lockers and rode storage. Head liners in both areas were clean and in good condition and secure. All berth areas are equipped with adequate lighting, locker, and drawer space. Adjacent heads with showers are provided forward and aft. Electrical and Electronics The electrical panels are in good shape. The 3 position battery disconnect switches mounted on the panels are in good condition and properly wired. All DC circuits were rung out and fou nd to be in good condition. The 120 Volt power panel, breakers, and circuits were found to be in op erating and safe condition. All wiring is properly harnessed and secure, (conforms to A.B.Y.C. standards) as can it be observed through out the vessel. Telephone circuits and receptacles are installed.

The engines are rated at approximately three hundred and seventy five horse power each. Visual inspection of the engines, oil, filters, and related connections show no signs of abuse. The fuel lines are reinforced rubber and are in good condition, but do needs some harnessing. The stringers that support the engine mounts are heavily built and fiberglass covered and tabbed to the hull. The stringers also provide rigidity to the hull. The stringers are in good condition. The raw water intakes are equipped with a proper sea water strainer, but the rubber hoses to the intakes are brittle and should be replaced. The engines exhaust through approved rubber composite hoses, fiberglass tubes and then overboard at the sides. The entire exhaust system is in basic good condition, but does need maintenance. The Onan generator engine exhausts through approved rubber hose and silencer to overboard. See note on hose chaffing on page eight. The fuel lines and filters to the generator set are in good condition. The raw water intake hose to the generator should be replaced. There are appropriate bilge pumps mounted. The fuel tanks are aluminum and only partially visible. There are water cooled Cruise Air air conditioners properly installed that provide heat and air-conditioning to all living compartments. The units were not checked out while operating. The bonding system installed is in good condition. There are no traces of oil in the bilge, and the bilge is clean overall. The batteries on board are properly boxed and secured but not covered. Page 7 of 9 1989 Wellcraft San Remo 42 Express Cruiser "ELYSIUM" Item Specific List 1.
