Don't recognise the Storebro.
What kind of vessel is it, where made and what engs etc.
Has it got the legs for a coastal cruise etc.
Don't tease us give us pics and info.

Cheers

Hi Benn,
Storebro are ship builders in Sweeden. They make the larger Nimbus on contract. The Storebro 435 Commander is a quality built ship with plenty of indoor and outdoor space. She has twin Volvo 370 hp super charged turbos and goes pretty quick. Best speed for Eco and comfort is 12 knots
She is well set up for cruising and we plan to be doing plenty over the next few years

Bill,
Nice looking vessel, may see you at some stage on my way thru the bay on the way out from the Gold Coast City Marina.

Don't want to be too pedantic, but you can have a turbocharged engine, (my car has one), or it can be supercharged, and some are even supercharged and turbocharged...sequentially....but I have never heard of a supercharged turbocharger...just sayin'. So have the clever Sweedes come up with something really different..?

Is this the one that was on Boatsonline at the Gold Coast.
Had a look, got a lot of fruit and goodies.
Water maker and all. Should be good.
You will definitely have to go slow cruising up the coast with 1000 lts and the 2 x Volvos.
But everything is doable, enjoy the comforts.
Nice ride.
Cheers
Benn

Hi Jason,
I'm at Paynesville too. Gemma now renamed NightinGayle after my beloved Admiral (although she hates the term). At South Harbour in an along side berth near the ferry. We have a Tradewinds 42 Taiwanese trawler. Fiberglass though so we can't do any direct comparisons to yours. Notwithstanding drop by and say Hi!
Cheers
Janis

Probably not pedantic, but I get your drift. I can only say in my defence, I have never been a petrol head and therefore can only repeat what I was told and it sounded cool to me? Anyway it goes like the powers of piss, super? Turbo? Or whatever. In future if asked I will just refer to them as Volvo 370 hp D6 Penta. How does that sound?

Au Contraire Peter, it is little known that the mighty FL 120hp has a hidden turbocharged supercharger booster switch inlaid into the helm next to the hyperdrive flux capacitor(usually found on the port side) activated by depressing the horn button continuously for 30 seconds prior to leaving your berth.Care must be taken when engaging this as drive shaft damage can result. This feature is mainly used for those who like to water ski behind their CHB's
