Pilkington Marine Ltd are in the process of installing the first Cummins QSB 6.7480HOI to enter the UK.
Following calculations carried out at Southampton University the ‘State of the Art’ Cummins engine was chosen by the vessel’s owner to be installed into his Vigilante 26 ‘Shearwater’ for service on the River Dart.
The expected speed of the vessel is calculated to be between 28 – 30 Knots.
Michigan Wheel have supplied the 5 blade propeller through their Devonshire Dealer C&O Engineering.
Pilkington Marine Ltd would like to thank everyone involved for their brilliant technical assistance so far.
We will keep you updated as launch day approaches.
