That included the addition of a stern arch, 7 new deck hatches, solar panels, folding prop, watermaker, beefed up refrigeration, auxiliary fuel tank, life raft, oversized stainless steel framing for a new dodger with Makrolon polycarbonate windows and a bimini running the entire length of the cockpit with side screening, and a RIB with wheel steering, a seat and 15hp outboard engine.

SHA SHA is a two-cabin Beneteau 473 providing generous accommodations for both the owners and guests. A large forward stateroom offers an island berth, and a private ensuite head compartment with separate stall shower. A U-shaped settee to starboard in the salon combines with a bench seat on centerline to afford comfortable dining and entertaining and can then be converted to another double berth for additional guests. Opposite to port is a long, straight settee that is 6'5" in length, affording yet another berth for overflow guests. There is ample shelving and locker storage above each settee, as well as custom dry storage under the floor panels. A nav station follows to port and is opposite the large galley. A full head with vanity is to port, with two doors, one of which provides private access to the roomy aft cabin.
