Yes of course ....but the pic of the gauge you posted is not from your 2x480 Hp boat it’s from a 13 / hr engine estimate 75 Hp yacht engine ? running / cruising @80 % ish load .So while I will be traveling the fuel rate that volvo display will show it will be accurate ?
Agreed.The owner says 160lph at 22... That is crazy for that boat haha
Nope thats not crazy although it seems slightly high to me. Get used to it. I did mention this earlier but Ferrettis are big heavy boats for their length so dont expect frugal fuel consumptionThe owner says 160lph at 22... That is crazy for that boat haha
I find those blinds to be a PITA because they take forever to wind up and down and the rubber rings at the bottom fail regularly (I replace them with hydraulic O-rings). We wind the blinds up when we come to our boat and dont put them down again until we leave. They are also very difficult to keep clean as they seem to attract dust
Very different animal, M.FWIW here are the performance and fuel consumption figures for my F46 with Cat 3208 engines.
The 430 will be faster and use a bit less fuel but not much
Thats why I said this!Very different animal, M.
Based on the specs I've got, the 46 is one meter longer, almost one foot beamier, and most importantly almost 2T heavier than the 430.
Regardless, your table shows a remarkably high fuel burn also considering these differences.
In the 18.6/23.2 range, she made from 6.2 to 7 lpm, which is pretty close to my fuel burn with the DP.
Out of curiosity, did you keep a similar table also for the 53?
I bet the 430 will not be more than 10-15% more fuel efficient. Yes I did keep a similar table for the 53 but I cant find it!The 430 will be faster and use a bit less fuel but not much
In the end what does it matter? We get fixated on fuel consumption with boats (like cars) but the reality is that there are far higher costs in boating than fuel such as depreciation, maintenance, berthing and, now, insurance. Not only that but fuel use is discretionary to some degree unlike some of the other costs. Basically if youre worried about fuel, go slowerNo worries, 'twas just idle curiosity.
The Fer model that I would actually be more interested in, for an almost perfect comparison with my boat, is the 57.
Almost identical size, with my boat slightly heavier when unloaded and the Fer slightly heavier when loaded, due to her huge fuel tank.
But VERY similar anyhow - even in the deadrise!
Otoh, the only F57 test that I found on the web, made by a US magazine, shows just the speeds through the rpm range but not the fuel burn... :-/
Yeah, actually you are 'kinda teaching grandma to suck eggs, M.In the end what does it matter?

Yep, I remember that we already debated this in the past.So that’s why I have previously questioned you figures a pair of 800 s pushing 27 T with a bigger wet area cant burn less than my 700 s anything between 17 to 20 T with a smaller wetted area.
