Would be great if there's now a factory option for that!
The design came from the Saona, but is now available on the Saba. The item description is...

OPT0553711 Electrical multifunction table - 5097 Euro
Electrical saloon table convertible into diner table or berth + cushion.

I have a PDF showing the various uses on the Soana (coffee table, small table, larger table with leaf and bed base.) It also pivots. I'd post it but I'm unclear how to post a PDF to CF. Send me a PM with an email and I'll forward it to you. The option is very expensive and I would have preferred a manual version, but we use the saloon table frequently so it was worth it to us.

Hi.
As I am at the point of trying Finsulate on our new Astréa42 next year, I am wondering what you mean exactly. I know they did a SABA not so long ago. Was it yours, or what do you know ?

2 Sabas were equipped with Finsulate and were immediately met with significant problems. More information is available in the private FP Owners Group.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1017563221642960/

As a result I cancelled my plans to install Finsualte and am planning on having coppercoat installed once my Saba arrives in Florida (Scheduled to leave the factory next week.)

I know the decision to copper or not to copper is a big and scary one but don't worry, it's one of the best decisions I made.

Our boat was mostly marina based from May to November this year without a bottom clean. I just dove the boat and to my delight... it's in mint condition.

Copper coat was applied June 2017. Good luck on the launch!

Re: 2019 Saba Ordered!

Thanks Dave! - I'm comfortable with the Coppercoat decision. Just trying to determine if i can get it done in La Rochelle or wait until Florida.

BTW - LOVE your channel, I've been following your adventure since mid 2016 when you first created your thread.

Re: 2019 Saba Ordered!

Hi Tom,
I had a quote for our boat, after contacting the coppercoat representative of France. This is the company: CNVP F Lesineau <francois@cnvp.fr>
In the mean while I joined (Facebook) and the FP groups. Thanks for your tip.

Thanks a lot!
I actually started reading your thread to see if I can pick up any ideas for our own improvements. It's always good to get inspo from a yacht more expensive than your own!

Our CC was done in L'Sables by Yacht Care Services but that's prob not a lot of help to you.

Re: 2019 Saba Ordered!

Thanks Luc,

I'll reach out to your contact and Uchimata to see if it can be done in the window between delivery and departure.

Finally! SV Ghost, St. Thomas USVI

After what seems like an eternity, Ghost is within a week of escaping France. She's sitting in La Rochelle waiting on the arrival of the Peters & May cargo ship Rolldock Sun which will deliver her to Florida where I'll lay eyes on her for the first time. If schedules hold, she'll depart La Rochelle on 1/8 and arrive in Ft. Lauderdale on 1/21.

We’ve got a 8 weeks of commissioning planned, most of which was has been decided. I was pleased to find a company called CubeSmart that provides storage units that will accept direct shipments (Amazon…YES) that will save me from the hassle of hauling boat equipment from Michigan.

I’m working on energy usage calculations so I can best-size the solar and charger inverter plan. Hoping to frame 4 of the new Sunpower 470W panels and perhaps as many as 4 Solara 140W flex panels on the coach roof. Charger/inverter is looking like a Quattro 5K to get the 200A charger (vs the factory installed 80A.) We’ll stick with the 900AH of OEM Varta AGMS until they start to fade, then go LiPo.

I can’t wait to step aboard for the first time.

Re: 2019 Saba Ordered!

Those AGMs could last you 6 years or more, current replacement for Lifpo is around $1000 per 100Ah + add on bits - hopefully prices will drop or an even better battery is designed by the time you want to change.

My thoughts as well, except as FP put the house bank in the Starboard engine well (along with the 13.5KW Genset) , even with my planned <50% DOD, I'm not expecting the AGMs to last more than 3~4 years.

The work I'm doing now, (charger/inverter, programmable MPPTS...) will hopefully make the future LiPo upgrade pretty easy and hopefully less $$/AH.

It's official - We're underway!

High winds in France slowed loading and delayed us a couple days. Ghost is now due into Port Everglades at 11:00 on 1/24. Now all that has to be done is finalize the ~400 lines on my commissioning and outfitting spreadsheet.

Re: 2019 Saba Ordered!

Congrats on the SABA

I have a SABA arriving in 3 months. We located a product called "Renolite" from Renolite Marine. You may want to have a look at that product before finally going the copper coat route. Cost is approx Euro 10k applied on a SABA
I have included both the URL and youtube links below

Good luck with your SABA and I would welcome any good or bad experiences you have in the next couple of months

regards
