About the same as Brooksie...nearly silent on the bridge. Just enough vibration to let you know if things are right. Yesterday, I was fortunate to be on the bridge in Mango Mama (another Krogen Manatee) while using the decimeter App on an I phone. In windy conditions at 7 knots with doors open, 69 decibels. Conversation in the pilothouse was normal. Of course, the hull, decks and walls are cored. Besides the obvious space and economy, quiet cruising may be the best single asset.
