40' Dave Martin designed Trendsetter 40 ...

TAMD60B 235hp

1300RPM 1.6gph at 8.2knots (full load)

Couldn't find the specs of this boat on Google , where is it?

8.2K at 1.6 GPH is almost a record!!!

Is this actual results or mere advertising projections ?

There are places to go and things to see. I wish to thank everyone for the information provided. It has cleared up some things and created more questions for my research but it has definitely made me want a trawler more.
Hi Everett,

I think Capt back in post number 35 has the right of it. Wood boats have a lot to recommend them, but even though their purchase price is lower, they aren't cheap. You have to be prepared to do an awful lot of work in order to keep them up, keeping in mind that all the while, what you are doing will not increase their selling price. They are great if you love and will live for them, otherwise you're better off with plastic...

I agree with that statement. I will add to it however. Buying the right brand wood boat (like a Grand Banks) and keeping it up will insure you can sell it when that day comes. Buying an off brand or one made in a yard known for shoddy work will not.

If I was thinking plastic, I'd find one that has already had a bottom blister job with epoxy barrier coats. Of course, if you can.

All boats are a trade off and compromise. Galley up or down, walk around decks or big cabins, all cabins forward or forward and aft. The list can go on and on, twin vs. single, bow thrusters, stabilizers, etc.

Make a list and search those desires.

I only had a few when I was looking.
1, head room...I'm 6'4"
2, a bed I can sleep in and not one between two bulkheads
3, a fishing cockpit

I had a broker find my boat. It has a lowered cockpit, very rare in Grand Banks, a king size bed, probably the only one in a GB and I have headroom.

You can do the same. Make a list of priorities and do a search.

Tried to look Trendsetter up too, cause this is a great number for S/L 1.3 and represents only 27 HP based on burn. Very nice indeed. Would love to see a lines drawing. My Bruno 35' requires 2.1 GPH to make this speed. The Wiilard will only reach 6.8K on this GPH and of course won't do 8.2K at all with the installed power.

FF, A little more info on the Treandsetter 40 from a ProBoat article. This was written by Dave Martin himself. 225HP Volvo 2.5:1, propeller not mentioned, 2.46 NMPG @ 15.5K, 1.19 NMPG @ 20.5K top. Then he says "hull #2 was lighter & faster. V hull forward w/ multiple spray rails, almost flat aft round at the chines.
There is a lines drawing in the article.

I was thinking my fuel usage was comparable to others posting, until I realized that I was calculating mine in litres per hour rather than GPH. Dividing by 3.79 makes it very economical.

I've recently callibrated my fuel tanks so I'll get a bit more accurate data under steady conditions & post the details soon.

Here's what Krogen states in their marketing brochure for the KK42 (no longer in production) with the Perkins 135 hp. I wish we could get ~5000 miles on 700 gallons of fuel. We average between 3.5 and 3.8 mpg in real life.


Approx. Range:
8 kts............2,150 nm
7 kts............3,200 nm
6 kts............5,000 nm

Larry,

At what rpm's are your speeds taken?

Do the paravanes help the ride so much?

We run at 1600 to 1700 rpms 98% of the time. And yes, the paravanes help the ride so much. We don't secure furniture and you can keep a cup of coffee in the pilot house without spilling.

Sorry for the long delay in responding to querstions about the Trendsetter 40, this has been a busy time for me. Follow the link to specs and hull info on this model. It has been claimed that this is the nost fuel efficient 40' on the water.

it does not show up well in the lines dawing but it is a very curious hull form with a deeply concave V forward, shallow V with hard chines amidships and round chines aft. Trendsetter 40

Note that my boat is "Hull #2" which is lighter than hull #1 and gets even better fuel efficiency as mentioned in the info.
