Originally Swiss flagged, her first owner sailed Enki continuously from mid 2005 to 2010/11 when his five year project came to a close. She sailed from Sweden to Iceland, British Isles and then some seasons in the Mediterranean. From there she voyaged via Panama to New Zealand and returned to Europe via Cape Horn and the east coast of South America.

We purchased Enki in France in July 2011 for our own five year project.

Second independent Autopilot

Second autopilot is wired independently from primary system. The second course computer can control the primary autopilot if needed in the event of failure of primary. The second autopilot drive unit is a Lewmar Mamba direct drive and is connected via draglink directly to the rudder stock. It is correctly sized for this purpose The primary autopilot drive is also a Mamba unit, but connected via draglink to the Mamba gearbox. This arrangement copes with any potential failure in either an autopilot course computer, a drive unit or gearbox, or the Lewmar Whitlock steering system itself.

Enki II is currently in Auckland, New Zealand.  She is complete with all the equipment and spares commensurate with living aboard full time, being self sufficient and undertaking the voyage from the Med to New Zealand. She has been carefully looked after, continuously upgraded and added to during our ownership.

There are countless spares and equipment on board that have not been listed in this document. They are very extensive. From spare water pumps for engines and generators, thermostats, oil filters, some 25 Racor fuel filters, to spare fresh and salt water pumps, Raymarine instruments, electrical spares, globes and fuses, cabling, Lewmar winch kits and spare rope clutches, blocks, ropes, sheets and shackles, LPG hoses and regulators, oils and lubricants, watermaker chemicals, numerous filters, toilet rebuild kits, other maintenance items etc etc.

Invoices and documentation since our purchase are all available to confirm our attention to ENKI II during our ownership. There are instruction manuals for all on board equipment. The blog too, written in real time over the past years, will confirm what we all know about boats…….they are not perfect. They do require care and attention at all levels and they reward you for that accordingly.

She is truly a yacht that a knowledgeable cruiser could step aboard and begin his or her journey with great confidence in her condition.
