Hello fellow cruisers,
Briefly, I am new to this forum, I live in New Zealand
and have just retired. My life ambition has been to motor cruise
around the Pacific Islands off NZ.
I am keen on buying
a Sundowner 30 in the states, probably Washington
and cruising back to NZ via the Islands.
My concern is the low fuel
capacity of the Sundowner 30 (varies between 100 to 150 gals) and with a distance of 2,328 nm from Washington
there's no way of reaching there.
At this point with the info that I have been able to find in the net a Sundowner 30 will cruise
at 9 knots using 1 1/2 gals of fuel
I don't know the internal design of a Sundowner 30 whether a larger or an added fuel tank
can be installed.
Perhaps there is a member(s) who have experience with this and could advise me please?
Thank you in advance.
