Talking

Ok guys im not the greatest at this computer thing so I will try my best. Here are some of the specs for the boat. As I stated before im keeping clean and simple and making it more of a workboat than a really fancy SeaVee that SeaVee is capable of building.

Motor is a Cummins 6.7 litre 425hp intermitten duty rated @ 1500hrs a year.

2kw transducer, 8" and 15" simrad units, fusion hook up, Icom 604
.
53 rod holders.

300 Gallons of livewell capacity.

Whitewater coffin box.

Key West T-Top with electronics box.

This is my second SeaVee so I guess you can say that I am happy with their price and customer service. In addition the guys are really easy to work with. Any questions please ask and I will try to answer them. As far as price please call SeaVee if you would like them to price one out for you. Again sorry it won"t do 75mph in 6-8' seas and have 4 outboards hanging off the back.

Sorry for a dumb question I dont know anything about diesels but what is duty rated 1500 hrs mean?

I think it will be an awesome boat - I see one around Pompano sometimes and we always comment on how nice it looks without outboards! I would consider something like this for my next boat!

My Bayliner with Quad Verado's does 83.2 in THT 6-9' seas and I have the pics to prove it!










[Great build looks superb!] Congrats!

Lucky love the concept and the pics, please post as many as you can. If this one turns out anywhere near as nicely detailed as your old conch it'll be a winner. No need for a go-fast here in S FL and I'm glad you didn't play the lemming with the new ride. No apologies needed for not having 4 outboards.

I did, however, lose respect for Sea Vee for not hiring people that speak English as the first language with that first photo. Not a lick of English written on that fan despite the fact this is the USA. Hope this doesn't detract from an otherwise important build thread.

I have ridden in 2 diesel 32 SeaVee's one with a Cummins (5.9) and the other with a Volvo D6 435. Both boats were very similar in ride, speed and economy. 185 gallons of fuel we were cruising anywhere from 31-33mph getting about 2.1-2.25mpg. If we were to drop it down to about 28-29mph then we could start to get close to 2.3-2.4mpg. On the pins the boat was doing 38 mph getting about 1.8 mpg. If you look at the litrature for diesel motors they will show you the max burn rate. That means that at wot the motor will only burn X amount of fuel. Hope this helps. Again these are averages that I recall from the 2 boats. And to be honest fuel economy and motor longevity was one of the major factors that lead me to change to diesel.

Pat Price runs the Daymaker Sea Vee Diesel outta Jensen here locally, always loved that boat. Not sure what it's got under the deck but she runs nicely.

Basicly the motor is rated to have 1500 hrs per year. They basiclly detune(think chipping a pick up) the motor so that it will lower the rev limit and increase the life of the motor. They also offer you a more commercial based warranty.

LOL. Belive it or not there are "hable englise" on the factory line and in the sales office. Thanks for the compliment on the Conch. This boat is going to be cool. I still have some things to unviel on here that we are doing that I have not seen done before so stay tuned and you may get some ideas. Thanks again for the positive comments.

Not gonna derail, but I would remove that comment -- it has no place here or anywhere for that matter. The USA as you say, is a country of immigrants.
