OPTIONSThis vessel may also be powered with naturally-aspirated diesels (Yanmar 4JH4s) or stage one turbo diesels (Yanmar 4JH4HE). Fuel economy will be increased at the expense of power and top speed. Different interiors can be designed on a custom basis. Bear in mind that standing headroom is limited to 6’ 2” in the cabin and pilothouse (as originally designed), and should not be increased more than 1”.
DESIGN Reuel Parker
NOTEThis design is intended to be fuel-efficient and environment friendly. The hull displacement distribution is based on engine weight and power limited to the twin diesels noted above.
