Engine Volvo Penta D3-110, 81 kW/110 HP 5 cylinder 2.4 litres displacement, turbo charged with intercooler, common rail and 
20 valves. Mounted with four rubber feet on strong foundations to avoid vibration and noise. Fixed 3 bladed propeller. Water-cooled rubber exhaust pipe. Freshwater cooled engine. Aqua Drive flexible link for a quiet and smooth engine. The hot freshwater circuit is led into a 55 L / 15 US gallon well insulated hot water tank. Due to the good insulation water remains hot for many hours after the engine has been run. The engine is served by a separate 12 V battery. There is a large filter for cooling water. The bilge pump has been installed in a position where it can be cleaned even in extremely bad weather conditions. 
Approximately 800 Litres / 212 US gallon in two tanks, below the floor in saloon with fuel gauge. The tanks are filled through 
deck inlets. Between tanks and engine there is a further large water and coarse filter in addition to the one on the engine. The 
cruising range at 6.5 knots in calm waters is approximately 1 300 nautical miles, provided that the optional Gori overdrive 
propeller is ordered.
Water capacity is approximately 910 litres / 241 US gallon under the floor in the saloon in two tanks. There is a water gauge. 
The water goes to a pump and then on to a 5 litres pressure equalising tank, and from there via a manifold is distributed to 
a 55 Litres / 15 US gallon hot water calorifier (heated by 230 V and the engine’s cooling water) and the cold water system. 
As soon as a water tap is turned on the water which is under pressure in the pipes starts to flow. As soon as the pressure 
reduces the electric pump begins to work and will continue until the pressure is built up again after closing tap. Filling of water tanks is through deck inlet. There is a carbon filter for the fresh water system. There are three bilge pumps; one manual, one electric and one high capacity electric emergency bilge pump that is floodable. The emergency pump is operable from the cockpit.
Three separate circuits; one with 12 Volt and 100 Ah, AGM with CCA value 1250, starter battery for engine start, and one 24 Volt 230 Ah AGM deepcycle for general 24 V use on board, covered by four 6 v 230 Ah AGM deepcycle batteries. One 12 Volt 230 Ah AGM deepcycle for general 12 V use on board, covered by two 6 v 230 Ah AGM deepcycle batteries. Charging of batteries is by one 140 A 12 V and one 55 A 24 V alternator from the engine. Lighting throughout the boat is located in all the important positions. There are adjustable lights above berths and settee. Electric sockets at inner chart table and in the cockpit. Electric panel with circuit breakers in the walk through. There is a water- and a diesel meter. For low power consumption LED navigation lights and LED steaming light with switches on the steering pedestal. Anchor light with switch at the work table inside. A wiring diagram is supplied with each boat.
Two Webasto Airtop Evo 3900 Diesel, with outlets in saloon, forward cabin, starboard cabin, heads compartments and aft 
cabin. As far as possible double heater hoses are used in each other for insulation purpose. Also the hull is well insulated and 
therefore heating and consequently electric consumption will be minimal. The heating exhaust flue is led outside through the 
blue decorative stripe. The heating is installed in the engine room and is easily accessible for servicing. 
A water cooled Isotherm SP system with Danfoss compressor unit for refrigeration is fitted for the icebox, extremely economical to run. Operated from a 24 Volt supply.
Five hatches, 7 opening port holes, companionway washboards, 5 vents in forward cabin, saloon, forward heads, sb cabin and the aft cabin. Separate electric engine room ventilation.

nated compass. Leather covered steering wheel.
Safety and General
All outside skin fittings are speedily and securely sealed by using ball-valves with Delrin-sealer. Double hose clips are used under water. For the toilet special non-diffusing hoses are used. All electric cables are, where possible, laid in special tubes and where this is not possible, cables are safely loomed away from the hull. There are large limber holes so that any water can easily drain to the bilge. The bilge is accessible by a removable floor panel without having to remove the steps. Inspection hatches for easy access to stop cocks and speed transducer. Four fire extinguishers, one fitted to the saloon table, one in the forward cabin, one in the aft cabin and one in the cockpit locker.
