Just recently joined, and this is all new to me. We have a 57 foot Halvorsen built in 1990 called Liberty( there are some pictures in our vessel Album) We keep the vessel in Newport , just North of Sydney Australia on beautiful Pittwater.
Some spec's on Liberty.

Fuel Capacity 6,000 litres
Water capacity 1,600 litres with a 120 litre/p/h water maker
Engines are twin 3406 caterpillar producing 540 hp each 13.6 litre displacement, so big heavy motors, reasonably slow/medium reving 2000 rpm max. She does 4.9 knots in gear and cruises at 9 knots at 1100 rpm

We run lithium ion Battery systems for house/3500 watt inverter and 12 kva onan genset.
For the first 3 months of this year we covered 2,500 nautical miles and went down and circumnavigated Tassie , which was the first real serious cruise we have completed.
We use the boat most weekends cruising the local waterways.
