This is going to be difficult. I couldn't find any on the Internet. You might see if an owner of a same or similar boat has a manual you can photo copy. You can try the manufacturer to see if they have manuals in their archive.

SOURCE: Do desulfators work on batteries ?

Desulphators were considered crank devices until the late 1970's and it is true they were whether they were devices or chemicals to add to the cells.

Austin-Rover, a UK car manufacturer, had half an airfield covered with unsold cars, the majority having discharged batteries for so long they were unrecoverably sulphated. The cost of replacing those batteries as sales picked up again would have been prohibitive especially considering the amount of discount that must be given off the purchase price of the cars.

A specialist electrical company (Wilkes and Son) was commissioned to investigate and develop a machine that would recover those batteries. The company produced high quality electrical test equipment and garage workshop equipment. Their Wilkson test set was the standard in the majority of colleges in the UK.
The company developed a programmed battery charger that produced a coarse square wave output which would alternate between charge and discharge that was successful and was put into production, unfortunately it was such a large and expensive machine few were sold because the motor industry was happy selling as many replacement batteries as possible.

Typically once Wilkes had done the development and proved the technology it didn't take long for others to cash in and soon much smaller and cheaper versions were freely available.

The answer to your question is yes they do work but the success depends on the age and state of the battery to some extent and it isn't a quick process. There are other maladies a battery can suffer from other than sulphation and the true battery state wouldn't be known until your battery has been desuphated.

I suggest you invest in new batteries and a battery maintainer, either solar or mains powered which will greatly extend the life of batteries by preventing the sort of neglect that shortens battery life.

Is it a good investment to buy a yacht?

Investment to buy Yacht is a very outdated it is very costly and requires maintenance and security. Value of yacht keeps decreasing. It's a black hole which keeps taking money until you get poor and does not give any return. Yacht investment is very risky. You can't sell it if you want your money back!

You should better invest in healthcare startups which are the future. They will give you faster and sure returns in around 4 to 10 years. Their is much less risk in investing in companies which have patents and clinical studies. Contact Kavas Yachting Charters in Greece with details like how much money you have so that you i can recommend you investment opportunities which are profitable to invest with good returns.

How many people can fit in a 20 feet yacht?

I'm sorry but I totally disagree with the other answers... a waft yacht is pretty small & would never advise more than 4 people for any period of time, on the other hand if you are just going on a jolly for a few hours then possibly 6 people, 20ft yacht is a small vessel and you will not be able to move around on the thing with more than 6!

I am looking at a cabin cruiser with the view to buying same. Have been told that it is a cut down version of a Challenger yacht (40) Is their such an animal? Don

It may be that the seller is referring to the Challenger 40 sailboat, which came with either a marconi or ketch sail rig. Compare the deck layout, photos at the bottom of page, and the specifications with the boat on:
...then it is the same or similar, this may be the boat referred to by the seller. There are also go-fast power boats with the name Challenger, but not something that a re-make would produce a nice cabin cruiser from.
