Helia 44 Fuel Tank

A 2nd Helia 44 Fuel Tank is one of the best upgrades you can make on your Sail Cat.

The Helia 44 was designed to have a 2nd 124 gallon fuel tank under the Stb. Stern berth.

Itís not on the FPís price sheet, but if you ask, they may factory install it for you.

For those of you that have had your boats delivered, you know that all the lockers are loaded with lots of 5 gallon jerry canís to make the Atlantic crossing to the USA.

This 2nd 124 gallon Fuel Tank has been added on quite a few Helia 44ís now.

With a 2nd fuel tank you will have a range of 1712 miles if you motored with one engine at 6 knots and 2000 rpmís.
That is why these Cats are one of the most efficient boats on the planet sailing or motoring.
You can easily double the 1712 miles, if you put the sails up with the trade winds and currents.

Hereís a few pictures that our friends on ďZiezoĒ have shared to show how itís done. "JB", the owner is in one of the pictures.
