About Aquarella:
Currently kept at a secure boatyard in Greece, she is a Hallberg Rassy Monsun from 1976 modified for the climate and special demands for sailing in the Mediterranean.
From the bow there's a retrofitted bowsprit which moved the original position of the forestay with furling genua forward about 70 cm. This made her easier on the tiller under sail. It also enables easier access to the boat with an integrated hinged ladder. The anchor is stowed under it. Theres an electric Lofrans anchor windlass with remote control. 
80 meters of galvanised anchor chain and a 16 kg CQR anchor.
Spinnaker pole and spinnaker halyard
Aft anchor (Brittany) mounted on pushpit with 40 m ankorolina.
The Monsun has a rolling boom, useful for reefing and stowing the mainsail.
Plastimo offshore liferaft for 6 persons. ( last service 2012)

The L shaped galley has a stainless steel sink with taps for both fressh water and sea water. Under the work bench is a cooler box connected to an Isotherm compressor. The gimballed  two burner Origo spirit stove hangs in a custom built stainless steel  compartment.

Under the floor between the forward two V berths are the hoses for fresh water from the 160 l tank. The through hull sea water ball valve for the head and protecting hose for the wiring from the through-hull echo sounder tranducer.
Mounted beside the navigation table are the controls for the 5 solar panels. The top left panel ( installed 2019) is designated for the dinghy engine battery. It can be programmed to give priority to this battery when needed.
The head (toilet) is a jabsco marine toilet with hand pump. The holding tank is hidden behind the locker on the  left. The wash basin slides out from under the lockers.
The toilet compartment is separated from the main cabin and forward stateroom by a sliding door on one side and a folding door on the other.
The table in the main cabin can be lowered to
create a double berth and the backrest can be lifted
for more space. Length of berths 2m.
Under all berths are radiators for the Eberspächer
waterborne heating system

Extra fridge Isotherm installed 2018

Starboard berth with backrest lifted.
The inside of the hull above all berths is paneled with mahogony.

The dinghy battery is kept under the bench
while in use or charging

With the table folded up and the starboard berth backrest lifted there's
plenty of space for creative projects.
