The boats of this project have been used in different regions since 2009.
Many of them passed 2000 hrs of operation with minor technical issues, what allows to state that this boat project has a proven design.
The feedback on the technical issues (since 2012) from one of the owners can be provided upon request. That boat has the Yanmar 6BY2-260Z with a duo-prop sterndrive, which has proven its commercial use reliability and cost-effectiveness.
