COMMENTS

The second hull in the Marco Polo series, designed by Ron Holland, AVALON is slightly larger than her sister ship. Built to Lloyd's standards, AVALON features a steel hull and a composite superstructure. She is powered by a single Caterpillar 3512B engine. With her easily driven deep hull shape, stabilizers, and a secondary propulsion system for emergency get-home power, AVALON ensures exceptional maneuverability, especially when docking, aided by her stern thruster. 

Well-equipped and meticulously maintained, AVALON is a proven long-distance explorer. Having recently completed a shipyard period, annual maintenance, and an intermediate survey, AVALON is not due for another haul until April 2026, with the next annual survey scheduled for April/May 2025. She is ready for her new owner for the upcoming season.
