Benefits of vessel repowering can include:

  • Increased vessel speed
  • Reduced operating costs
  • Improved fuel consumption
  • Reduced noise
  • Reduced environmental impact

Repowering your vessel can also be a chance to install the correct engine for your exact application. To maximize powering efficiency, the engine, transmission reduction ratio, and propeller must work together.

When considering repowering your boat, there’s a lot to think about. By talking to an experienced naval architecture firm like Naval Architecture and Marine Solutions we can look at all factors to consider including:

  • Stern drive vs. Inboard vs. Outboard
  • The power rating of the hull
  • Weight of the new engine, and how that may affect the boat’s trim and handling
  • Shaft length and propeller specifications
  • What powering is required to obtain your desired speed
  • Does the vessel require a modification or addition of a pod

Contact NMS today to discuss the design and engineering of your vessel repower or your propulsion options.
