ALL SERIOUS OFFERS CONSIDERED: MAVERICK” is a masterpiece of the finest Dutch Craftsmanship available today. From the exquisite joinery in the interior spaces to all of the ships operating systems, the marriage of the Kuipers Shipyard and Vripack Design and engineering have made “MAVERICK” a true work of art while being a proven and capable expedition vessel for passages in excess of 6,000 nautical miles. She has crossed the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and yearns for more. Her fuel efficiency (1.6 gallons per nautical mile) is believed to be partially due to her shrouded propellers that can be seen in the attached photographs that also offer propellor protection from logs, containers, and other objects at sea.
Maverick has received continual maintenance attention by an owner who operates aircraft and is very familiar with good maintenance schedules. Oil samples have frequently been taken on the engines and the generators. Other than oil changes, sensor replacement, injector replacement, zinc replacement, and heat exchanger replacement very little work has been necessary over 45,000 nautical cruising miles on the engines and generators
Recent maintenance includes:
New computers for the DMP system, new LED overhead lighting, new gyro compass, two new dishwashers, two new washing machines, two new ice makers, new eisenglass curtains, complete exterior repaint, rebuilding of both tenders with new tubes on the large tender, one new Sea Recovery 33 gal/hour water maker.
