The Engine: Yanmar Diesel 160HP 4LHA-HTE



This is a 4-cylinder, turbo charged engine, which develops 160HP (118kW) at 3,300 RPM. Fitted with a 2.52:1 reduction gearbox, it is designed for smooth, long running operation. It has excellent torque characteristics that allow it to power a large, slow turning propeller for quiet motoring. The engine is flexibly mounted with Aquadrive coupling and stainless steel shaft to a cast bronze P bracket. It is fitted with dual alternators.
The engine is housed in a full walk-in engine room, with the main access door through the ensuite heads compartment of the owners cabin. It has a full height door entrance, and is fully soundproofed. Access to the engine and other ancillary equipment is easy with good lighting and fan ventilation.

The engine room is fully lined with fire retardant insulation that is faced to prevent any contamination by diesel or inflammable substances. All access panels have rubber sealing strips. All ancillary pumps and motors are rubber mounted for quietness. Ventilation ducting is also sound-insulated where appropriate. Two automatic fire extinguishers are fitted.

This area is fully sound insulated for near silent running. The exhaust is fed to an HMI water separator, which eliminates almost all exhaust and cooling water noise. A remote control panel includes automatic shut down facilities. This is an upgrade from the standard 7kW generator to support the yachts full air-conditioning.
