Default Xcelerator 64' engines in. House on!

We reached a big milestone at the shop today and wanted to share. We set our 1800hp MAN engines in our 64' and put the house on. Being our first sportfish. It was a big day for us!

We opened the doors at 6am and had the truck pulling out just before 11. I will have more pics later I will post up!

Wow!
That is gonna be one beautiful sportfish when completed. The pic with your crew standing next to it with the house on really shows the lines. Looking forward to seeing it with the bridge installed.

Super clean engine room with decent access to all the machinery, one of my "must have's" if ever I could afford a vessel like that.

I forgot to ask kln......
Does every single piece of a build like this get glassed or do some parts get coated with epoxy and then paint?

We tabbed the deck beams to thensure underside of the foredeck but didn't glass the entire bottom of the foredeck or the deck beams. Only thing I can think of in the entire boat that isn't glassed.

The house and salon floor weighed 2300lbs

Each engine was about 6800.

Really quite happy with the room we have in the engine room. It's tight. But workable. Some compromises were made to accommodate having a separate pump room forward of the engine room, and a 4 stateroom layout

Thanks kln,
It was actually the salon floor that caught my eye. I'm sure it gets covered with some beautiful teak or something. Was just curious if glass was needed or just seal it with some epoxy and cover it.....or maybe not being that it's inside.
Have a great weekend!

Have a good weekend too Chief! We are heading to Jupiter, then Lauderdale, then back home!

The top of the salon deck will get glassed. But we haven't even built the hatches to go over the engines yet.

Seeing the guys standing next to the engines certainly makes it clear how huge those things are! Lots of visible progress for one day, must be very gratifying for everyone involved.

I notice that there seem to be two different brands of generator, a Northern Lights and some other. Why is that? I would think for keeping spares and ease of maintenance, it would make more sense to have them be the same.

Ask bills106 about soundproofing composition for under the salon deck. He did something recently that worked quite well and is fairly light.

You're right, the perspective fooled me.

Thanks for starting this thread. Looking forward to more pics.

Boy, Xcelerator has really grown in just a few years.

Good luck.
