Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] not enough RPM and only 6 knots with 2300


Hi Philipp, 

How is the cleanness of your prop and hull? No barnacle growth?

Hi all,

Does anybody has an idea what I still can do with my engine (TMD22), that I get back my speed from 7 knots with 2300 RPM and with the max RPM of 3500 and a speed through the water with 8 knots?
I have already cleaned the tank and the diesel and I have changed the turbo charger because  the clap could be moved.

I had the happy situation with the max rpm and max speed two years ago and since then the performance went down.

Thanks for your remarks in advance.

Fair winds.

PS: I got the information from the engine technician, that the engines can go to 4500 rpm but AMEL has put a bigger Propeller with the effect that max rpm is 3500 with turbo charger. So you can't overdrive the engine with max rpm. The consumation is only going up exponentially....
