How quick did the 50 go?

Looking at the pic, I assume you re-located the intercooler/heat exchanger on the port motor?

The boat only toped out at 55mph due to the diesel engines running out of steam to keep up with the turbine, I needed to use 2 speed tranies on the diesels when the turbine was running but the cost was crazy for the ZF units and I ended up abandoning this project for a while until the scarab is complete.

The intercoolers were moved to make room for the turbine those big Volvos weigh about a ton each for 400hp, the turbine weighs 300kgs for 1600hp and 1600Lbs feet torque @ 6000 rpm at the output shaft.

I would guess that the boat is nice to use with twin diesels for everyday stuff, pottering about and manouvering, then light the big fire for getting a move on when you're going places, over to you Jason.

PS. what's a "tuebine"? and can you get a thubine, or a monbine, or even a sat/sunbine!

Yep Jonís right diesels for economy and getting around the dock set all three away to get on the move and cover large distance more quickly plus one hell of a good noise!

Most of the noise is from the intake when we run it in the garden it was about 130-140 db (sounds like a jet fighter on take off) By the way exhaust gas temp is around 600 deg c no need for a BQ on this boat.

You would save close to 1600lbs. if you could locate a couple used Yanmar440s. They weigh right at 1200lbs. each.


...the turbine weighs 300kgs for 1600hp and 1600Lbs feet torque @ 6000 rpm at the output shaft.
Who built that motor? Do you use surface drives on all the engines?
