  2. That is exactly the look I am after with the swept up sides to the semi-trad stern enclosure. Thanks Do you think the slipper stern would compromise the engine bay sise too much if I wanted to put my calorifier in there?
  3. It was the slipper stern I was particularly interested in
  4. I am most of the way through my power audit but the clear challenge is a washer dryer and my wife's hair straighteners and hairdryer (the usual boat power issues no doubt!).
  5. Has anyone used XR&D before? I was pretty wedded to using Tyler Wilson but I have had XR&D suggested to me as a more cost effective solution. I was looking to have a 62' semi-trad with sheerlines built including recessed traditional panels at the stern end.
  6. Very helpful IanD! Ideally I would like to not use the TravelPower
  7. Hi Everyone, I am hoping you might be able to help. I am having a 60ft semi-trad josher built for initial use as a leisure boat but with a view to being a 5day a week live aboard within a year of splashing her. I am a bit of a geek and really like the remote monitoring capabilities of the Victron kit via the Cerbo GX but am really not sure whether the following is the full electrical supply and distribution spec or if I have missed anything? I am also thoroughly confused at to whether a travel power unit is entirely necessary given I will have dual alternators on the Beta 50 including a 175amp domestic alternator as well as a starter battery alternator. I really would appreciate a quick review of the following or if someone is electriclly minded a wiring diagram???: Beta marine 50 with dual alternator and remote oil filter as extra (+ other adaptions we discussed) 3.5 KVA travel power (unsure if this is required given the spec below would appreciate some advice) 4 x Victron Lithium LiFePO4 12V - 100Ah battery with Bluetooth 3 x Victron Smart Battery Sense - 10 Meter Range 1 x 12v load dump battery (lead acid) 1x 12v starter battery (lead acid) 1 or 2 bow batteries for bow thruster (lead acid) Victron smartshunt Victron Lynx Distributor x 1 Victron Lynx Power In x 2 Bluesea isolator main switches 3 x Vicron VE.Can resistive tank sender adapter (1x blackwater, 1x fuel, 1x water tank) Victron Multiplus Inverter Charger 12/3000/120-50 Victron Cerbo GX Victron GX Touch 50 screen Victon dc-dc convertor (unsure if required or sizing. If installed is a dump load battery required?)

  8. Thanks, Yes I have the same document open in front of me. Spec for my 43 beta option would be: Beta 43 Greenline Upgrade - 100 Amp, 24 Volt Secondary Domestic Alternator in Lieu of Standard – Port Side Mounted (Polyvee Drive) Upgrade - PRM 280 Gearbox Upgrade - C Delux control panel Upgrade - Super silent enclosure (50:50 on whether this is worth it or to soundproof full engine bay) Upgrade - Hospital silencer Upgrade - Aquadrive unit Spec for my 43 beta option would be: Beta 43 Greenline Upgrade - 100 Amp, 24 Volt Secondary Domestic Alternator in Lieu of Standard – Port Side Mounted (Polyvee Drive) Upgrade - PRM 280 Gearbox Upgrade - C Delux control panel Upgrade - Super silent enclosure (50:50 on whether this is worth it or to soundproof full engine bay) Upgrade - Hospital silencer Upgrade - Aquadrive unit
  9. that is reassuring and highlights my concern that the 50 might not keep the alternators cool enough. Maybe the Beta 43 (possibly with super silent enclosure) with upgraded alternators to 24v domestic is the research for tonight.
  10. Thanks Julian, We are in Kingston Upon Thames so will be up and down the Thames and in the longer term would like river capability for the wider network. My concern is with the rpm likely to below could I be in danger of overheating the alternators through inadequate cooling due to the low rpm? I think if I did go with the smaller Beta 43 the higher rpm noise would annoy me so might need to get a super silent enclosure as well as pay for the PRM150 upgrade and the premier control panel which is thrown in with the Beta 50.
  11. I am specifying my electrical and engine requirements before I get The Fit-Out pontoon to draw everything up for a few boat builders and I have seen that the base spec I am being offered is a 38 canaline unit with an upgrade option to a Beta 43. I am more than prepared to pay for the Beta 43 but for a few £100 more I can get a Beta 50 which comes with the PRM 150 and dual alternators with the ability to upgrade to a 24v domestic alternator which would work well with my proposed 48/3000 Victron Multiplus II inverter charger. Has anyone got any thoughts on whether the Beta 50 is a bit over the top for a 60ft semi-trad josher or am I on a winner? PS I know I probably need dual skin tanks which will be more £ but I like the idea of the better torque. Any help much appreciated Steve
