How far can a cruising catamaran motor
Let's say it is a common model: Lagoon 440
: 325 liters x 3 or 257 gallons (+ 5 gallon can for emergency
reserve, but not counted in the range)
Side question: can all three tanks
be used by the saildrives or is one tank dedicated to the genset?
Bottom is newly painted and clean.
We are trying to maximize the range so we'll use just one 55 HP engine
at 4-5 knots in the doldrums with zero or cancelling winds and relatively calm seas. Boat
is fully loaded with gear
, provisions, etc.
Flex-o-Fold 2 blade
prop (or other, please specify)
manual says light displacement
is 10,500 kg, Max load disp in theory 13,500 kg with an authorized max load of 5900 kg. Not sure what that means. Maybe someone can help me there.
There are likely other factors that I've forgotten. I'm interested in both the theoretical and real life expertise of the forum. This may help us understand the difference between electric
better, though I admit I'm very seriously considering electric
given new battery
Again, this thread is about diesel engine
range on a cat. I'm intereested in all brands/models so if you have other actual numbers to share, please don't be shy.
