Engine Room General
The engine room is the technical heart of the ship. Next to the main engines and generators you will
find here the main units from all major technical systems. Special attention is given to measures
that limit the transfer of noise and vibrations throughout the yacht. All electrical/vibrating machinery is fitted on (soft) rubber, resilient mounts. And the in and outside of the engine room is
covered with sound and vibration insulating and damping materials which also ensures an highly
fire retardant barrier in case of fire.
Garage and Lazarette
Aft of the engine room the garage (sb) and lazarette (ps) are situated. You can access them by 2
hydraulic operated stern doors.
The lazarette is mainly used as ‘wet’ room, for storing diving equipment and fishing gear. There is
also a worktop to process your freshly caught fish. After which you can immediately store it in the
shockfreezer or storage freezer that are located in the lazarette.
To enlarge your change on a price catch, a fishfinder is located near the entrance to the platform.
A Bauer Compact PE250HE breathing air compressor with a Pro Blender Nitrox generator is
installed in the lazarette to fill diving bottles.
The bow thruster is a Naiad VT140 fixed tunnel type, electrical driven, 132 kW. Controls in the wheel
house and on both wing stations.
A Naiad stabiliser system with stabilisation at anchor is installed to ensure comfortable sailing and
to minimize roll while you’re at anchor. The installed unit is a Naiad model 621 with two fins of each
3,49 m2. The stabilisers are driven by a 30 kW hydraulic power pack, which is situated in the engine
An air compressor is mounted in the engine room. This compressor will serve a Kahlenberg three
tone air horn. On several locations around the ship there are also work air connections, which can
be used to fill fenders or to drive air tools.
There are fuel oil storage tanks integrated in the hull. All tanks are provided with a level indicator and interconnected by means of a manifold and fuel trim system. A Westfalia fuel separator, model
OTC 3021337, filtering system is lined up in this fuel transfer system. This unit enables you to clean
the fuel in the tanks.
A lube oil system is installed that makes it easy to change the oil from the generators and main
engines. The system consists of a clean oil tank and a sump tank for dirty oil. The tanks are connected
to the engines by means of a manifold and transfer pumps.
The boat is provided with central electric driven power pack in the engine room, which provides
hydraulic pressure to the gangway, stern hatches, side boarding ladders and aft crane. The crane on
the fore deck has his own dedicated power pack, which is located in the fore peak.
The ventilation system is split into accommodation ventilation and engine room ventilation. The
interior ventilation is a part of a complete HVAC installation.
The engine compartment ventilation is based on the maximum air consumption of the engine,
generators and air change of the engine room. Furthermore two (2) engine room air coolers are
The Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) is based on air supply from outside the yacht,
accommodation with local and individual controllable fan coil units.
The fresh air is treated by the airhandling unit and diverted throughout the accommodation spaces.
The air is routed near the fan coil units and mixed. The accommodation air temperature is
individually controllable in each compartment.
Outside: 40oC – 95% R.H.
Sea water: 32oC
Inside: 22oC – 55% R.H.
Fire Extinguishing and Detection System
A hi-fog sprinkler system is installed in the accommodation areas. A Novec fire extinguishing system
is installed in the engine room. Local portable fire extinguishers are installed as specified by MCA. A
salt water fire main is installed, fed by means of 2 independent driven fire pumps and hydrants
supplied with nozzles and hoses according rules and regulations. In the deckhouse, near the
navigation area, a fire detection cabinet is mounted. Sensors mounted in the accommodation,
engine room, forepeak, garage and lazarette are connected to this cabinet. To meet the class and
MCA rules, an independent portable, diesel driven emergency pump is mounted in a locker on the
bridge deck aft.
Three (3) H.E.M. 25/1600 Reverse Osmoses water makers, are installed in the engine room. Each
with a capacity of 6000 liter per day. Two (2) of the water makers are used for the production of
drinking water. The third for process water, e.g. trim water and aquarium water. Next to the water
makers there are of course sand filters, UV sterilizer and Silver Ionizer.
Two (2) boilers are placed in the garage for freshwater heating. The boilers, each 25 kW, are heated
with 400 VAC, 3 phase heating elements. To achieve a good and reliable hot water supply the boilers
are connected in such a way that they can work together as well as independent of each other (e.g. during maintenance).
Grey Water System
One combined, grey & black water holding tank is integrated in the hull. Black and grey water will
be transported by means of a JETS vacuum installation with subdivided collecting units for grey
water throughout the yacht. All toilets are directly connected to the vacuum installation. All ventilation pipes will have smell filters. Special attention is given to have no black and or grey
water tank smell.
