Owners Manual of Sailing Vessel Avanta Page 8 2 Description of the craft The craft is a cutter ketch-rigged sailing vessel that was custom-built. The Wever53 is a logical evolution of the Wever52 design that has already proven its outstanding qualities as a family cruising yacht. The ship offers the comfort and additional room of a real pilothouse for steering under adverse conditions. It features a full-fledged engine room for easy maintenance, and has a variable draught between 1.4 and 2.8m to allow gunk-holing in those attractive, but often shallow, coastal waters that fixed keel designs cannot reach. The hull is made of Alustar providing superior corrosion resistance and high strength after welding. New design features of the Wever 53 are, for instance, a full aluminum hull with a newly designed stern featuring a hydraulic swimming platform and additional storage space, and an improved sail plan and deck lay-out for easy handling. Tried and tested technology is used. The ship is soundly built, well equipped and has excellent handling qualities. The designer P.B. Behage has given a great deal of attention to good sailing qualities, short-handed operation, comfort, safety, good sailing qualities when under power, stowage space, and service-friendliness. The interior design, storage room and equipment are ideal for longer stays aboard. It has been optimized for living space. The guests cabin can sleep two adults and one child. The steering house bench can be used as pilot berth, close to the watchman. Sailing qualities. When under sail, the large beam and well proportioned hull give the vessel excellent stability and speed. With the ballast keel lowered, the draught is almost 3 m and provides a great deal of stability and, even when the keel is raised, the vessel has sufficient stability to sail close to the wind. The theoretical hull speed (based on the water line of 12.65m) is between 8.7 to 9.7 knots (see section 6.8) Easy handling. The well-planned equipment allows easy handling by two people. There is a mechanical helm position in the cockpit, and an electronic one in the steering house; engine controls can be found at both positions together with extensive navigational information. The retractable keel is operated hydraulically, with a manual backup. Safety. Many features have been incorporated to ensure direct and indirect safety, such as easy handling, the shelter offered by the vessel under adverse weather conditions, and the reliability of the equipment due to its simplicity. A day tank for reliable quality of diesel fuel can be found in the engine room. The three watertight bulkheads, the possibility of lying high and dry, a well-protected propeller with a rope cutter, a bulwark and an 80 cm high stainless steel sea rail on the deck all contribute to crew safety. Both an electronic and a mechanical autopilot have been installed to assist the crew on long stretches. Special care has been taken to have all relevant navigational information, including radar, directly available at both steering positions. Under power. When using the engine the cruising speed is between 7.5 and 8 knots (see section 6.8), with a maximum speed of 9 knots. At cruising speed, the vessel has a cruising range of approximately 1,100 nautical miles3. Comfort. Whether sailing or lying at anchor, the Wever53 is a very comfortable vessel. A dodger provides sheltered cockpit seats against spray water and a bimini gives shade.

Based on 1500 l storage, 11 l/hr diesel fuel consumption at 8 knots for main engine, (Whispergen inactive). This corresponds to 136 hours (5.6 days) of operation.

When the weather bad, the steering house is a good place to be. There is spacious Owners Manual of is Sailing Vessel Avanta Page 9 accommodation below deck, including the owners aft cabin. In the engine room, a water maker, washer/dryer-combination, oven/microwave, a freezer and a bread maker have been installed. Storage space. A great deal of attention has been given to the capacity and location of storage spaces. Apart from the cupboards and drawers that can be found throughout the vessel, there is also a forepeak with a chain locker and ample room for fenders, mooring lines, etc. The cockpit has a number of lockers and towards the stern with the negative transom, there is a very extensive storage room (lazaret) that can accommodate, among other things, sails, bicycles, an outboard engine, a deflated dinghy or a diving compressor. A large waste bin has been installed for storage of household waste. 2.1 Main dimensions & hull material Length overall Length hull Length waterline Beam Displacement Ballast4 Draft keel up Draft keel down Vertical clearance (excluding antenna) 16.90 16.00 12.65 4.87 25650 8990 1.40 2.80 20.95 m m m m kg kg m m m

The hull plating, rubbing strakes, tanks and keel house are made out of Alustar, a shipbuilding material that provides superior corrosion resistance, and tensile strength after welding. Welding of this material can be carried out using standard ship building electrodes. For the other parts, ship building quality aluminum AlMg4.5MnW28 is used. The thickness specifications are: sole 15 mm hull below waterline 7-8 mm hull above waterline 5-6 mm Deck and superstructure are made of seawater-resistant aluminum AlMg4.5MnW28, the frames of AlMgSi I F 28/32. Thickness specifications are: plates of deck and superstructure 5 mm deck beams, angle profiles (75x32x6)(65x32x6) mm bulwarks and gunwale 5 mm Cockpit drains are made of aluminum tube. The chain plates are anodized aluminum. Below deck, double plates are mounted, where necessary, for winches, rails and deck blocks. The sacrificial electrodes are made from zinc. The rudder is fabricated of 8 mm plating with internal reinforcements, and a thickwalled aluminum rudder shaft. The rudder angle is limited to 45 maximal. A grease nipple is fitted for lubricating the bearings.
