Engine Room

Most professional Captains tell us that we have the best engine rooms they have ever seen on a vessel this size. You can get to everything quickly and safely with 6'2" "standing tall" head room. The area is well lit with 110V and 24V lighting. There are 4 blowers to cool the space down after a run, and the area is air-conditioned so maintenance and inspections are done in comfort. Each diesel engine has a dual Racor filter. The fuel system is upgraded with 1930 gallons of fuel that can be filled from either side of the boat. The engine beds are solid polished stainless steel and secure the engine vibration isolation mounts to the hull stringers. They run all the way past the transmissions to accept the thrust load of the aqua drive units.The dripless shafts seals have a crossover tube that supplies water from both engines so you can safely run on one engine if required. At the aft corner of the engine room you will find twin sea chests with removable clear cleaning ports. Each of the engines, generator, A/C system, and all other components of the yacht that require salt water have their own shut-off valve on the sea chest. One hull opening for each sea chest for all sea water needs provides great safety.
