Broker Notes: Friend Ship was damaged by hurricane Irma and a survey is available in full disclosure. The work was completed to factory spec in December 2018 by the Tortola Moorings base and her original owners have been living aboard since January. They added the aftermarket upgrades during their time living aboard, which means that all of this aftermarket equipment is less than 8 months old.
