Canal Boat - - The Boat Test -

This boat is pow­ered by a Beta 43, which is fit­ted with a 3.5kW Trav­elPower en­gine driven gen­er­a­tor. There’s also a Vic­tron 3kW Qu­at­tro in­verter charger.

There are six 113Ah do­mes­tic bat­ter­ies, plus one for the en­gine. The boat has a 24-volt sys­tem rather than 12 be­cause Fern­wood is a firm be­liever that it’s more sta­ble and pro­duces less volt­age drop.

Heat­ing is by an Eber­spächer diesel boiler and, for se­cu­rity, there’s a Boat War­den Pro alarm sys­tem.
