“Gavito” was completely refitted to the highest standards in January 2016, when she was equipped with new engines and gearboxes, new shaft seals, new seawater strainers, new mufflers, new exhaust ports, new scuppers, new fuel tanks (long range 650 Litres)… the list goes on. The fishing gear was also replaced in 2017 to include two 130 lbs Alutecnos reels matched with Alutecnos chair rods, two Alutecnos/Shimano rigs at 80 lbs and one at 50 lbs. In 2020, the “Gavito” has undergone even more improvements with equipment such as new carbon outriggers from Rupp, new covers and cushions, two new Raymarine Axiom 9” with 3D vision and Navionics fishing charts, new Roll bar with sunroof, new flooring, and more all being added to the long list of features.
