6000 litres of fuel gives a range of 3000 miles approx. Another 3000 litres of fuel can easily be plumbed in. Tank already in place. Which would take the range up to 4500 miles approx.

Gardner 190 hp 8LXB has only done 111 hours since back to bare block rebuild [ new Twin disc 3 to 1 reduction gearbox fitted 50 hours ago ] KEEL COOLING DRY STACK. No heat exchangers to maintain.

I sea trialled the vessel for 2 hours, and 8 knots seemed to be the comfortable cruising speed @1250 rpm. The top speed @1460 RPM was 9 knots. Its a nice boat manoeuvre with a large rudder and lots of push. The powerfull bow thruster made it even easier to manoeuvre.

The vessel has just been freshly anti fouled

Remarks
This boat will have appeal to former commercial operators who know the importance of a tough vessel with workable systems. This is a no nonsense long range unit that can take you to those out of the way places, and it will do in economically.
The boat is virtually a new vessel with all systems working and tested.
Nicely fitted in beech timber and laminates. Good refrigeration for those trips to the reef
3 separate sleeping cabins and plenty of water for the crew.

The engine space is a delight to be in with full access to the front, side and back of the engine. The fuel tanks have large inspections. [ as you would expect] and there is plenty of room for additions if you would like to do your own thing.
