Construction                                     

 

Hull

Planked in larch fastened with copper rivets to closely spaced steam bent oak timbers.  Occasional heavy weight sawn oak frames in futtocks making a very strong and robust hull.  Galvanised steel hanging knees reinforcing the hull to deck join.

 

Decks and cockpit

Straight laid solid Iroko decks screw fastened to the deck beams.

 

High bulwarks all round with intermittent metal stanchions for added strength.

 

Superstructure

Aluminium superstructure giving sheltered seating for passengers with the wheelhouse mounted above.  This layout gives excellent visibility for the helmsman and also makes the most of the available deck space.

 

Machinery

 

Engines

Twin Gardner 6LXB 175hp diesels installed new at the time of build.  Excellent slow revving and economical engines, superb reliability and are also quiet when running which is important for a passenger boat.

 

Twin disc 5061A down angle gearboxes to stainless steel shafts with 26” 4 blade bronze propellers.

 

Currently 15000 hours on the engines.  Complete maintenance records available.
