Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Volvo D2-75 for a SuperMaramu
Very interested to read your email and would love to hear more.
With the exhaust on the other side were you still able to connect to the original stainless muffle box ?
How accessible is the seawater pump ? it's good that it no longer sits above the engine.
Are you sure that the D2-75 is lighter than the TMD ? The specs I have seen suggest much the same weight.
We usually cruise at about 6.3-6.5k if motoring any distance--often for many hours in the Med. That means about 17-1900 revs, depending on the sea condition. How does that compare ?
Top speed with the TMD in flat calm with a clean bottom and prop is about 8.3, 8.4k at 2800revs. How does this compare ?
Do you know at what revs the turbo kicks in ? We religiously give our TMD a blast every 12 hours or so. Waste of diesel, but apparently it keeps the turbo happy.
