Re: Max Volvo RPM

Hi Guys,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
My boat has the same setup except for the Maxprop.
A few facts about the TDM22 is that it is rated for much higher rpm than Amel chose to use. On my previous boat, I always got 4200+ at full power with the comparable prop. AMEL just chose to operate the engine at a lower rpm. This was an easy choice as our engine has a good torque curve and lower rpm results in longer life and less noise/fuel. So we have 70+ hp instead of 82 in my previous boat.
Not much impact in my opinion.
Enjoy your boats.
