Helmsman 31 - Just shipped to me in Seattle

My personal new build Helmsman 31 is shipping this week to Seattle. I went all electric on this boat because at some point I anticipate moving it down to Florida. My most recent boat was a Colvin designed schooner.

Will have a Seasall 240 (fully electronic Glendinning controls), ZF transmission, induction cooktop (Kenyon), convection microwave, separate head/shower - and a whole lot of teak for a 31 foot boat.

Seasall is very common in Asia and Europe. 6 cylinder diesel turbo with auto oil change! They do have another boat being built that will have a John Deere engine installed however.

How easy is it to get parts and service for it in the states?

And what do you mean by "auto oil change"?

"Auto oil change" as in it bleeds off a little dirty oil while replacing it with clean oil?

According to the specs it has a built in electric oil change pump.

Depends on the perspective. Tooling from US. Most below deck engineered equipment from US. Shaft system, transmission from Italy. Engine is Korean.

A container is shipped from the US to build the boat.

Coastal Marine Engine handles Seasall in Seattle and they have enough support )even in Idaho). Seems to me that engine tech is so advanced and reliable these days that it isn't such a big concern.

Most engine troubles I see relate more to engine mounts.

Dealer Locations Hyundai SeasAll Diesel Engines

Performance Diesel is the US support group for Seasall and have an excellent reputation plus Hyundai behind it so I wouldn't be concerned with support.
