Mechanical and Rigging

Mechanical Systems:

Located under cockpit sole in vented and soundproofed engine room. Twin 1991 Volvo Penta 41B marine diesel engines turbocharged. 200HP each. Six-cylinder. Fresh water-cooled. Sterndrives to aluminium 4  bladed duo props. The engines give a cruising speed of some 24 knots with a maximum speed of 26 knots (dependant on loadings and fouling). Engine hours as at 1st August 2020 1149. Trim tabs. Last out of water service in February 2020. Through tunnel bowthruster.  A stern thruster is available, but not fitted currently.

The stern drives have been locked in the down position to avoid interference with the stern thruster when fitted. The decision has been taken to leave them in the locked-down position as the owner drives the boat from the flybridge where there are no trim controls for the stern drives. The owner has found that the trim tabs provide sufficient balancing to enable the vessel to preform to its maximum capability.
