If you'd like to know why we named the boat ARION - well, we liked the story. And if you don't happen to have a book of classical stories, we've found it on the Internet. Read the story for yourselves.
The yacht has a fore and aft cabin with three
bunks in each, a washroom with toilet, and a U-shaped dinette with the galley
opposite. The navigational equipment is located in the wheelhouse and comprises
log, echosounder, compass display, VHF radio, Loran C, Robertson Autopilot,
GPS, radar, short wave transmitter. Under the wheelhouse the engine room contains
a Perkins 50 hp diesel motor, diesel tanks for 450 litres, hot water boiler
(1,000 l fresh water on board) and the batteries for the 12, 24 und 220 V power
supplies. The batteries are charged by a solar panel and by the engine which
also provides the hot water and the refrigeration if it runs about 30 minutes
a day. This
was our home for six years.
