This boat has been professionally maintained since we bought it in May of 2001. The boat has been stored inside - heated every year. The engines, Cummins 6CTA 8.3, 450hp have a little over 750 hours (equivalent to approximately 40,000 road miles on a truck).
Winter 2013-2014 updates include new Bimini Top, New Camper Top, New Inverter, New Inverter Batteries (7), New Digital Battery Charger, New Raw-water Pump Impellers and normal maintenance.
Engines have had a complete oil and filter change at the end of each season (about 60 hours), including the transmissions. Oil for the engines has always been Shell Rotella 15W40 and the transmissions Shell Rotella straight 30 wt., all as prescribed in the operations manuals from Cummins. Oil levels in both engines have remained constant throughout the season without any additions necessary.
