No i dont work for Avon, I work for Barrus the engine people. Avon give us the first few boats and we do the initial engine fit before it goes into production.

That does it to me. It looks wicked and the idea is very sound. I'd love to have a test of it

Maybe a bit slow for my liking...........

For only a 77kg weight penalty you could put a 120, 1.7 Merc/Cummins in her and boost the top speed substantially!

We looked at putting the Mercruser Diesel in but the customer wanted Yanmars and also the parts for the Mercruser are quite alot more expensive over here. It seems a bit odd to us because the boat is going to be used in the states were Mercruiser parts are alot cheeper and easier to get hold of. But They wanted Yanmars. Cummins???????? thats not what we do!!!!!!

The tanks on the boat are 2x 25ltr ones. I think you can see them under the drivers seat. The made by us at work. Not sure about consumption yet though.

Mercruiser do do Cummins. I think you will find that some of the Mercrusier diesel range is developed from cummins blocks. The little dieseld are using Isuzu blocks?

I don't care who made the engines I want a go!

Oh yeah, i'd like a cummins Diesel on my 4,7m Searider
Really, i seriously considered that, but of course no chance...

A really nice boat on your pics. It looks great and i'm sure it handles so too!
