IMPERVIOUS 1995 Real Ships 70' Steel Trawler

IMPERVIOUS is a 1995 Real Ships steel hulled vessel.  Over a 4 year period she came into the yard for a series of extensive interior and exterior refits to meet the cruising needs of this vessel.  The initial interior refit was focused on modifying the crew quarters.  The newly acquired vessel had damage from salt water induced corrosion that required immediate attention as well as re-engineering of the exhaust system, upgrading stabilizers and redoing entire water system.
