Yeah, it listed 24,000 gal. At 8 gph / 9 kts (1.125 nmpg), that's 27,000 nm before the tanks are bone dry. Or just over 31,000 statute miles, which is probably the number they're using to get 30,000 miles.

No idea. I didn't look at the ad until this morning, so I wouldn't know if they changed it.

Great looking boat, that one looks very well loved.. big bonus are the new cats. I always have had a soft spot for the Midnight Lace.. even the name sounds sexy. The are about as fuel efficient as you can get at speed too.
Let us know how it proceeds

FF, you didn't fall and hit your head did you?

Twin 450 HP, turbo charged, after cooled, electronically controlled engines with electronic throttle and shift controls?

Fred, Don't listen to OC Diver, go for it! You're the perfect guy to own a boat like this!

Those air start Atlas are legendary. Watching Taconite (originally Boeing family yacht, same engines), stop and restart in reverse to come into a dock, was absolutely fascinating.
Pacific Yellowfin has a pair of Atlas too.

Exterior teak and teak decks? Not for me anymore.
Plus, I cannot figure out what I would do with a boat over 40 ft.
