Nanaimo 44 Nova Galaxy

Does anyone know this boat?
Name is Aviscinis

1988 Nova Galaxy Power Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

It's listed by Calibre Yatch Sales in Nanaimo.

My questions is this:
I only see a single set of throttle controls at both helms...but the listing mentions Twin Volvo Pentas 306.
Am I missing something? There are no photos of the engine room or engines.
Tried to call the broker but the answering machine does not let me place a message.

Does it have auto pilot, diesel heat or inverter? 30 year old Volvos may attract some comments. Looks like dual action throttle and shifters.

Yes, machinery space would be nice to see and ease of access to same.

Greetings,
Mr. G. Don't know the boat but there appears to be 2 tachometers so I expect 2 engines. Could easily be the levers are combined throttle/shift units so one for each side. Don't know the technical term for them.

It's possible that the controls are MMC electronic controls. They would be side by side so would appear as only one set but are in fact controlling both engines.

They are dual action controls, each lever operates both throttle and forward/reverse selection.

Single lever controls, each lever controls one engine and reverse gear. Not electronic,
probably Morse (bowden?) cables. Could be wire over pulley but not likely on that
style or year of boat.
