Propulsion:

Arkyla is equipped with the 75hp turbo-charged Yanmar 4JH4-TE diesel engine with KM4A2 gearbox.

Drive is provided by a Flexofold 3-blade folding propeller equipped with an Ambassador Marine rope stripper.

Fuel System

Fuel is stored with a relatively inaccessible keel-located 360-litre fuel tank. 

 

To help maintain integrity of our fuel, we have installed a Marine 16 'Diesel Dipper'.  The Diesel Dipper is designed to suck small amounts of fuel from the very bottom of the tank below the outflow pipe; any water, bug or other contaminants are then separated into a chamber (to be removed from the system) and clean fuel returned to the tank.
