Sizes and Capacities

 

  • Boat Capacities and Specifications

    • Volvo Penta D2-75/150S

      • 75 HP

      • Good for 7 knots at 2400rpm (80 % power) with reasonable economy.  You can push it to 2600rpm or higher but the boat will only go marginally faster with significantly higher fuel burn.

      • Folding prop for lower drag while sailing.  When sailing (and engine is off) place throttle control in reverse to fold the prop.

    • 6 x 140Ah house batteries.  Plenty of juice to avoid low voltage alarms in the middle of the night assuming you go to bed with a full charge.

    • 2 solar panels (610 watts) mounted on bimini top.  In most cases will meet the day time power use.  Download the Victron Connect application to connect via bluetooth to the solar power controller to see what power the panels are producing.

    • 116 Gallons fuel

    • 195 Gallons water (does it matter?  Fat Bottom Girl has a water maker!)

      • Water pumps are known to break.  Which is why Fat Bottom Girl has 2 pumps.  A spare is already plumbed in and ready to go.

    • LOA 53' 8"

    • Draft 6' 4"

    • Beam 16' 4"

    • Displacement 39,200 lbs (17,775kg) - she's a fatty!
