Easy to increase fuel capacity for those longer passages if required.

Last runs I did to vanuatu had range increased by having 4 X 44 gallon drums of diesel per side on one

On another we had 2 of these down aft

or you could even have some of these to increase tankage, which is what I will be doing

its a really good website, and i like the look of the boat. even with 2000nm range is still good and i especially like the fuel consumption.
