Re: Sea Trial Lipari

We owned a 2015 Lipari Evolution before purchasing our Saona.
It is a solid boat and sails well. The things that I would keep an eye on during the sea trial are:

1. Escape hatch. Ours developed small leaks. FP sent replacement hatches, but we sold the boat before we had them installed.

2. Water heater. Ours developed an internal leak after only 3 years. We kept hearing the water pump cycle as the leak slowly emptied the accumulator tank. It would pool in the engine compartment until it caused the bilge pump to activate. While they are under warranty for a period, we were told that we would have to uninstall the tank and ship it to the manufacturer for a pressure test before they would replace it.

3. Rudder posts and steering arm attachment. Over time the shear pins used to lock these together would wear causing a bit if play.

Other than these small issues, we were very happy with our Lipari while we sailed her.
