AB Normal was the 6th in the highly successful series of Inace aft house Explorer Yacht designs from 80’ to 126’. These proven Explorer yachts have now done hundreds of thousands of miles of exploring through all types of sea conditions and proven themselves to have outstanding sea keeping, sea kindliness and efficiencies. Inace Explorers are known and admired worldwide in the Explorer Yacht community for their solid commercial systems, ease of operation, long range and comfort at sea. The hull design was done by Bray Yacht Design, a specialist in high efficiency hull designs and bulbs. AB Normal was designed with a larger main deckhouse which enabled her to have a separate dining area and lounging area on the main deck while others in her size range have a combined lounge/dining area.AB Normal’s swim platform was extended by 4’ to enhance boarding and to create a water level lounging area. She has also had additional on-deck storage added and other upgrades including a new hot tub on the sky lounge deck. AB Normal has just finished an extensive upgrade and service period, a complete list of which is found below. All systems were checked, serviced or replaced as needed. She then did a flawless trip from the US to the Med and a summer cruising. Much of the equipment AB Normal has has been changed in the past few years including generators, main air conditioning compressors, pumps and head system. AB Normal had an extensive refit and upgrade in 2109. Refit items are listed in sections below.She is ready to cruise to all the exotic places around the world, and VAT paid in Europe.

SEA CHESTS(2) two sea chests in the engine room using 6” pipe. The sea valves are flanged bronze ball valves, 3-piece. Removable strainer plates are fitted to the bottom of the hull. The sea chests have blow down system. The chests are connected by a cross over pipe that feeds all of the raw water system. Each individual sea chest will feed the system with 50% blockage. Each sea chest can be isolated while underway and be cleared by the blow down system or by removing the sea strainer. All piping coming off of the sea chest is CuNi. In addition to the main main sea strainer in each sea chest, each individual user of raw water has its own finer filter.
The fuel oil system comprises a total of 12,500 gals in (5) tanks:
The system consists of four categories:
The fuel transfer system enables transfer of fuel from tank to tank.
An Alfa Laval fuel system model MIB 303 is installed, with drain to dirty oil tank. The system can draw fuel from any tank and transfer fuel back to day tank only.A unique feature is that the Alfa Laval can be set up to draw from the two main tanks and continually feed the day tank which then overflows to the two main tanks creating a clean/cool fuel loop. The day tank can operate the vessel in excess of 24 hours so that if you fill the tank every 12 hours you always maintain a minimum of 12 hours clean fuel in the system.The day tank is above the fuel pumps and keeps positive pressure on all of the engines. In addition the day tank is located between and within the boundaries of the two centerline main fuel tanks. This creates a heat sink that keeps the fuel in the day tank an optimal temperature.There is pump out and fill located on the main deck. Oily water tanks- 240 gallons
