Engine and Mechanical

Full standing height with wide spaces to walk around in this delightful engine room! The two well-maintained Detroit diesels take pride of place. The engines are turbocharged and with the 4 fuel tanks totaling 1750 gallons of fuel there is over a 900 nautical mile range.  At 650 hp, these machines will provide an all-day cruise speed at 16 knots or throttle back and enjoy the roughly 1nm per gallon at her 9 knots ‘trawler’ pace. Either way the ride is solid as this yacht is fully stabilized with Naiad stabilization system. She also has a hydraulic bow thruster to assist with easy maneuvering.  Walker air seps, Racor fuel filters, and bilge blowers are all part of the high-end fit-out aboard this luxury yacht.
