a cadet training vessel for some time.

cleaning and maintenance.
The Generators are run in the daytime Monday through Friday.
The vessel is fully in class and can sail at any time.
The vessel really is exceptionally clean in the accommodation area
and public spaces.
Owners ideas were USD 1.2 million however we would certainly try less
