Alizee history and pre-2008 maintenance and upgrades

The 36' cutter Alizee was designed by William Crealock for Cabo Rico Yachts in 2000 as a modification of the Cabo Rico 34.  Crealock extended the CR 34 stern, improving access to the steering system and adding a large lazarette locker to better accommodate all gear for cruising.  The stern extension balanced out the original design, which was bow heavy with water tankage and anchor chains, so the CR 36 gained a bit in waterline on a heel and gained in speed.  Alizee is hull #2 of the new 36' design, and she was commissioned in May 2001 for Bob and Dunja Hegeman, who sailed her from Florida to New England - her was documented hailing port was Colchester, Vermont. They subsequently brought her back to cruise the Bahamas.  For four or five years, she was berthed regularly at Marsh Harbour Marina in Abacos.  Bob and Dunja decided they really wanted a larger boat, since they spent so much time aboard, so they put Alizee on the market in 2007, first in Florida and then moved her to Annapolis, Maryland, in spring 2008.  There she was purchased by James Williams in June 2008.

Alizee specifications

 LWL 26'10"
 Beam 11'

During the years the Hegeman's owned Alizee, they installed an after-market Sitex/Nobeltec radar/chart plotter system and an FCF 16,000 btu air-conditioning unit.  Simon Edwards, a delivery captain and boat manager in Annapolis, did much of the maintenance on the boat during the period 2001-2008.  No maintenance log was provided on transfer of ownership, and few receipts for maintenance were discovered.
