I do not have it backwards...it is listed under options as: The Old Iron Propulsion Package (in lieu of standard electric) $75,000.
That is the standard so if you want Diesel it cost more. From what I understand the space savings in the engine compartment is going to be designed into the interior. Therefore if you want the old system it will be more than a drop in. This is a production boat now not custom.
It is not that we disbelieve this. We are simply trying to make sense of this data.
I suspect what is happening here is that Gunboat wishes to propagate the electric
package and have tooled up to do so and the electric
components are included in the price
The term "Old Iron Propulsion
Package" would seem to back up this view.
If you want diesel
then it seems what they are doing is charging
the additional costs of the diesel motors plus the structural modifications and not subtracting the standard electrical
costs. This is an interesting marketing
I guess if I was in that the market for this boat I would elect to spend money
on electric upscaling of around 100% to make the boat safe.
It will be interesting to see the specs of the boats now coming out of the factory. Once we actually see one that survives for longer than a month or so blue water
cruising we may be able to come up with some conclusions.
