My boat has been criticized for lacking a flying bridge but having forward-leaning pilothouse windows.

I was truly blown away by the efficiency of the new 5kw gen from Northern Lights. At 1/2 load it burns 0.28gal/hr. I thought I was going to have to suffer, but with that fuel burn rate, we can stay out for months.

What do you mean the "3306 caterpillar that was de-tuned"? Do you mean like a limiter put in or previously turbo?

I believe the original owner had re-calibrated the fuel injection pump to limit full throttle to 175hp. Normally this engine would be 250+hp.

Seemed adequate to me but only ran it for 5 hours or so. Seeing that it's been that way since 2006, I suspect its fine.

Wow. Very nice. She seems to have a lot of volume and floor space for a 17' beam.

Well done👍

Congrats, she popped up on my boat searches often due to having several features I
also was seeking. I can tell you will have a grand time getting to know each other!

My Cat 12G Motorgrader had 3306 rated at 125 hp , no turbo. It has 32,000 hours with rebuilt head.

Can someone link me to the yachtworld ad? I did click on the link on p.1, but it took me to a page of super-duper yachts instead. Has the ad been taken down, perhaps?

In any case, that engine room looks amazing, and for me personally, 50' is a perfect length for a boat that can pretty much do anything you'd want. Congratulations.

Serious looking boat. Congratulations, welcome to the forum and I think you'll find the resources on this forum are really good. The amount of collective knowledge in this forum is pretty awsome.
