History and Maintenance

“Jay-Jay” has been meticulously maintained by her previous owner – only the third since her commissioning in Vancouver, BC – since October, 1984. There is some Seattle family history in her ownership as well.

She has been moored for thirty years in her freshwater boathouse in Seattle; literally ‘no expense has been spared’. Her detailed mechanical logs indicate regular and scheduled oil and filter changes to main engines and genset, routine replacement of hoses, filters, motors, pumps, compressors, etc., in her engine room, and for all of her mechanical systems.

She has been hauled by rail at Seattle’s renowned Jensen Motor Boat Co. facility for hull inspections and bottom repainting on a regular schedule, including as recently as November, 2015.

The galley and salon were custom designed and remodeled with the highest quality appliances and custom built cabinetry. This provides exceptional living space in her interior main salon.

Everything aboard this beautiful boat works as it should.
