  • Hulls & decks etc +

    We organized APATIKI to accommodate a couple in comfort in hot climates, six months per year in the Mediterranean and full-time in areas like the Canary islands or the Caribbean.
    We decided on purpose to keep the furniture as basic and functional as possible in the pure Wharram spirit. It means no door frames in bent hardwood, no shiny worktops, no glossy bulkheads, no laminate teak flooring but simple plywood coated in white or with clear epoxy.
    The cockpit bubble offers with its clear vinyl windows good visibility and wind or sprays protection. The white tarpaulins are efficient for shade and good ventilation.
    We use the cockpit as the center of life of APATIKI.
    The doghouse with its sitting headroom is the other center of life when sailing shorthanded in rough weather conditions.
    It includes the galley with a Wallas Diesel stove and heater lid, a microwave oven, a Waceo / Dometic 50 liters fridge (2014), a sink with pressurized water tap, a single bunk and a porta-potti portable toilet hidden under a seat.
    The starboard hull offers a huge “master cabin” with a bathroom aft.
    The port hull comes with a home office, a multipurpose workbench area, and a double guest cabin aft.
    There is fore of each hull a storage area with shelves and separated from the cabins by a watertight bulkhead.
    Note : the home-office could be easily transformed into the classical U shaped saloon that can also be used as an extra double bunk.
    There is already a cabinet in front of the multipurpose workbench that was originally built to accommodate a combined sink/stove unit.
    The hulls are insulated with 20 mm cork in the cabins to reduce heat, noise and vibrations.
    A total of 15 wall mount halogen cabin lights.
    There are on deck 12 Lewmar Ocean hatches and 6 Plastimo dorades for light, ventilation and water tightness. Also 2 Lewmar escape hatches.
    The antifouling consists in 4 layers of Coppercoat for low maintenance (2012).

  • Engines +

    Electric propulsion sold, installed and maintained by idtechnology.nl
    The same motors are also sold by Mastervolt agents worldwide.
    2 x 10 Kw Aquamot electric motor
    2 x 200 Ah 48V AGM battery bank (starboard one replaced in 2013)
    1 x 8 Kw 230V 1500 RPM 51 dB (A) water cooled LMG 8500 Lombardini generator on deck
    4 x Piktronik 18 Ah 48V programmable battery charger
    2 x Piktronik board computer, controller and joystick
    1 x 110 Ah AB Power lead-acid generator start battery
    We are sailors and we avoid as much as possible to use the motors.
    Our philosophy : no fixed planning, no agenda, no predefined itinerary, no mandatory appointment, no flight to catch. We go where and when the wind allows us to sail !
    The electric motors reflect this sailing attitude. We configured them to meet the following requirements :
     maneuvering in safety, comfort and silence in marinas and anchorages,
     1 hour full throttle in case of emergency (top speed above 7 knots in good conditions),
     100 nautical miles in 24 H in case of flat calm (no wind, no swell, no current).
    Fuel consumption at 4 knots : less than 2 liters per hour
    Fixed fuel tanks : 65 L and 45 L = 110 L
    Portable PVC fuel tanks : 9 x 20 L = 180 L
    Total mileage : 290 L = 145 H = 580 NM @ 4 knots in flat calm
    This configuration could be reviewed to meet other requirements by adjusting the number of batteries / battery chargers and installing a more powerful generator.
