In 2017 the current owner replaced the original 6-354 Perkins, 130hp with 2 x 6-354T, Turbo charged 6 cyl 1978 model Perkins, rated at 185hp each. These had come out of 2 Commer fire engines, which had only done around 50,000Km & having been in fire engines, had naturally been fastidiously maintained. Being a farmer and very handy, the owner marinized them himself. The engines were matched to the original BorgWarner gearboxes and heat exchangers off the original engines. The engines are mated up with a truck type silencer on each exhaust, with wet stainless-steel exhausts for the last 4 feet, before they reached the hull skin fittings, so they are almost completely silent.
