 Trinity Rose has extensively cruised the water of Mexico and has been cared for by an experienced owner who has continuously maintained her.  An overhaul of her systems was performed in 2013 along with continued upgrades in 2016 including new heat exchangers and replacement of the oil lines and oil coolers on both engines and generator.  In March of 2017, the boat was hauled for a bottom job and the exterior varnish was done. 

For 2018, varnishing of the flybridge, cabin trim and handrails has been completed along with a newly installed Raritan Crown macerating head pump and motor assembly; replacement of all hoses and clamps on all water intake hoses to strainers and a new AGM battery for the generator was added along with GFI electrical plugs installed in the galley and heads.  A New Yamaha 15 hp outboard with 5 year warranty was recently added to the boat's inventory.

A 2017 out of water survey and oil analysis are available.  Trinity Rose is ready for her next adventure be it cruising to the Pacific Northwest, Mexico, a great Catalina weekend or the perfect liveaboard.
