The latest Redbay creation recently departed the Team Redbay headquarters en route to its new home port of Kenmare. Dromquinna was commissioned and built for hotelier John Brennan and his son Adam, and the boat has been built to their bespoke specification.
Redbay took a standard production 1150 boat and altered it to produce a couples cruiser with the emphasis on creating a comfortable live-aboard space in a boat that can go to sea in any weather. John and Adam were heavily involved in the initial design and conceptualisation of the vessel, detailing both the internal dimensions and the arrangement of spaces on board. In addition, John personally oversaw the selection of the wood, cabinet styling and upholstery finishes.
Dromquinna is powered by the Yanmar 8LV engine package, which is coupled to the ZT370 sterndrive with the added benefit of the Yanmar JCS10 joystick control system.
On-board comforts include an Eberspacher heater, a galley with a Wallas diesel stove, a Dometic fridge, a forward-mounted heads compartment and an Ocean Marine electric toilet. A Garmin electronics and navigation package is also included.
