With the bigger MANs, Hull No. 1 topped out at just over 33 knots. And she was reasonably heavy at the time, full of fuel and a third full of water with two gyrostabilizers and eight people aboard — but no tender on the high-low platform. She’ll accommodate a Williams 345 or, if the passerelle is eliminated, a Williams 395. A continuous 2,000 rpm cruise translates to around 27 knots and a range of 290 nautical miles without a fuel reserve. I preferred a laid-back 10 knots with those 1,200s rumbling under 1,000 rpm, which meant burning roughly 6.5 gallons of diesel per hour, making her range more than 750 nautical miles with a 10 percent reserve.
