Blue Sky, an NT42, has two tanks, port and starboard, with no crossover line.

Not all NTs have Cummins; there was a stretch where Volvos were installed. Not sure when, but somewhere in the 2000's I believe. And our NT42 has a Lugger/Komatsu.

The Mainship 350/390/400 would meet much of what you are looking for although I think they usually have Yanmars.

Our previous boat had a Volvo TAMD40A. Due to a faulty engine diagnosis we were told we needed to replace. This was in 2012 in Campbell River BC so I'm sure the numbers will be different today and in...

We have a similar issue with our Nordic Tug 42. I'm 5'9" so getting in or out is not an issue. However, it had a huge impact on other bedroom activities, and not in a good way.

I recall an article in PMM written by Steve D'Antonio covering a cruise from somewhere in the UK to Iceland. There were huge seas but the Fleming 65 (Venture) handled it with aplomb.

I would certainly second Northern Spy's recommendation of Barkley Sound's oars out of Coombs. Very well made (that is all they make) and works of art to boot.

Once the engine is started, all electronics get turned on, including radar. I pretty much only use it as an overlay on the plotter, since on the Simrad 4G the plotter is set to north up (my choice)...

Blue Sky has a Tankwatch4 system for monitoring the black water tank. In our 6 years of ownership the system has been rock solid reliable, and I believe that it is at least 15 years old.

Yachtworld Still Sucks

People resist change, they don't resist improvement.
Still find the new Yachtworld clunky and a challenge to navigate. And now I've discovered that if you want to look up a specific make, it had...

Amazing how well the autopilot was able to find that cave rather than smash up on a presumable rock bluff.

I've often seen Palomar anchored in various coves around here, plus on occasion at the marina. She looks pristine so has obviously been very well cared for and boathouse kept.
