The engine and generator have dedicated 12V start batteries.
The 12V instruments can be powered from a dedicated 12V battery, however the default is to power the 12V system from a 24/12V DC/DC converter from the 24V house batteries. This means all are charged from the solar panels.

Since 2009 her present owners have been on a circumnavigation from the Caribbean via the Panama canal through the South Pacific to New Zealand, Tasmania, Northern Australia, S Africa and then finishing back into the Caribbean.
The yacht then crossed the Atlantic to her home base in Plymouth.
The boat is set up for comfortable live-aboard ocean cruising by two people, but can accommodate six in comfort.
She has been constantly maintained and upgraded over the last seven years to reflect the true needs of a cruising couple and continually turns heads and receives many compliments wherever she travels. She is well arranged practical yacht with many spares, tools etc.
Well equipped Beneteau 57, but, will need some work following her circumnavigation.
