Default Gladiator with diesels - speed?

Hi!

The fuel price is USD 5 for a gallon in Norway... However, if you buy diesel you pay less than 2,5 USD for a gallon...

Yanmar has a new engine up and running - a true 500 HP diesel. What kind of speed can be expected with those engines and ASD8 Arneson Drives?

Gladiator is one of the 3 best looking boats ever built in my opinion.

PS! Can it be delivered with a small cabin... ?

Cheeers, Toffen - Norway

I don't know of any Gladiator with Arnesons and I don't know of any with diesels, some definitely know more than me however.

That kind of setup I imagine would throw the CG all over the place. Arnesons push dynamics are very different from Bravo's and diesels are a LOT heavier than gas mills.

The weight of those 500hp deisels are no more than their 440 package.

We have a 42' Fountian with Yanmars, runs great (about 87mph).I would not go to a smaller boat because of the weight (about 1450#per side)this is with the 440's in race trim. Bill

Hi!

Will Smith at Phantomboats delivered 2 x 420 Yanmarks on their Phantom 34 Classic. It ran 80 mph +. So it should be possible to mount twin Yanmar 500 in a Gladiator (bigger boat).

Cheeers, Toffen
