AQUA LOBO was originally built as an Asteroid 54 full displacement hull, designed by Pat Bray Yacht Designs and completed in 1996. In 1999 the vessel was extended to 60' with a custom aft deck and crane and the bow was fitted with a bulb extension. Naiad Multisea 2000 hydraulic stabilizers and fore and aft hydraulic thrusters were also installed, along with other numerous modifications designed by Bray Yacht Designs. AQUA LOBO is a 3 stateroom, 2 head layout with a single fuel efficient Cummins diesel engine.
AQUA LOBO's owners spent six years (2005-2011) restoring and refitting her from stem to stern. They had the original wooden bow pulpit raised to its current location and is now made of aluminum; they completed the aft deck and swim platform extension, added the upper and lower aluminum rub rails, completed a bottom job in June 2011, new carpet throughout in 2011 and many other modifications.
Entering AQUA LOBO through the lounge deck, is a comfortable L-shaped settee that has ample storage underneath each bench. From the settee, you could relax with a book from the built-in bookshelf or watch a movie on the 32" flat screen LCD TV mounted on the forward wall. A shelf above the stairwell to the Salon will easily accommodate a receiver and/or DVD player.
