Fánaí, Steel Ebbtide 36, For Sale

Fánaí is a round bilge steel version of the  36ft Alan Pape, long keel Ebbtide design. She was built and fitted out by the owner, she was launched in August 2003. Her ballast is lead ingots encapsulated in concrete. All windows and hatch lights are "unbreakable" Lexan.

She has a wide flush deck, many handholds, substantial stanchions, lifelines and granny bars near the mast. There are no holes in the deck. All gear (mostly stainless steel) has been attached to stainless steel backing plates which are themselves welded directly to the hull.  The hull, deck and insides of the craft were all shot blasted professionally and immediately  epoxy primed to prevent any oxidation of the steel. After two coats of epoxy the interior was sprayed with expanded polyurethane foam.
