AB Normal was the 6thnin the highly successful series of Inace aft house Explorer Yacht designs fromn80’ to 126’. These proven Explorernyachts have now done hundreds of thousands of miles of exploring through allntypes of sea conditions and proven themselves to have outstanding sea keeping,nsea kindliness and efficiencies. Inace Explorers are known and admirednworldwide in the Explorer Yacht community for their solid commercial systems,nease of operation, long range and comfort at sea. The hull design was done bynBray Yacht Design, a specialist in high efficiency hull designs and bulbs.
AB Normal was designednwith a larger main deckhouse which enabled her to have a separate dining areanand lounging area on the main deck while others in her size range have ancombined lounge/dining area.
AB Normal’s swim platformnwas extended by 4’ to enhance boarding and to create a water level loungingnarea. She has also had additional on-deck storage added and other upgradesnincluding a new hot tub on the sky lounge deck. AB Normal has just finished annextensive upgrade and service period, a complete list of which is found below.nAll systems were checked, serviced or replaced as needed. She then did anflawless trip from the USnto the Med and a summer cruising. Much of the equipment AB Normal has has beennchanged in the past few years including generators, main air conditioningncompressors, pumps and head system. AB Normal had annextensive refit and upgrade in 2109. Refit items are listed in sectionsnbelow.

Removable strainer plates are fitted tonthe bottom of the hull. The sea chests have blow down system. The chests arenconnected by a cross over pipe that feeds all of the raw water system. Eachnindividual sea chest will feed the system with 50% blockage. Each sea chest cannbe isolated while underway and be cleared by the blow down system or by removingnthe sea strainer. All piping coming off of the sea chest is CuNi. In additionnto the main main sea strainer in each sea chest, each individual user of rawnwater has its own finer filter.
Fuel Oil System
The fuel oil systemncomprises a total of 12,500 gals in (5) tanks:
- Two (2) main tanks (each 4000 gals approx.)
- Two (2) forward tanks (one with 1780 gals andn the other with 1740 gls approx),
- One (1) day tank (980 galsn approx.)
The system consists ofnfour categories:
- Transfer, Supply and Return, Fill, and Tankn Sounding.
The fuel transfer systemnenables transfer of fuel from tank to tank.
- Two (2) “Racor” fuel filters, Mod. 75-1000MAn for main engines.
- Two (2) “Racor” Mod. 1000 single filter pern generators.
An Alfa Laval fuel systemnmodel MIB 303 is installed, with drain to dirty oil tank. The system can drawnfuel from any tank and transfer fuel back to day tank only.
A unique feature is thatnthe Alfa Laval can be set up to draw from the two main tanks and continuallynfeed the day tank which then overflows to the two main tanks creating anclean/cool fuel loop. The day tank can operate the vessel in excess of 24 hoursnso that if you fill the tank every 12 hours you always maintain a minimum of 12nhours clean fuel in the system.
The day tank is above thenfuel pumps and keeps positive pressure on all of the engines. In addition thenday tank is located between and within the boundaries of the two centerlinenmain fuel tanks. This creates a heat sink that keeps the fuel in the day tanknan optimal temperature.
There is pump out and fillnlocated on the main deck.
