This V-Drive Randall was one of only two ever produced with Twin V-Drive Diesel Engines. The original Volvo AQAD41B engines were no longer reliable, and as a result the owner elected to install two new FPT SOFIM S30 marine engines for their excellent reliability and performance.
Through this installation the original twin disc MG502 Remote V-Drive Gearboxes were retained and re-used as they were still able to handle the new FPT engine’s power, however installed new propellers to match the new performance offered by the FPT engines.
The client also took the opportunity to install a Paguro 5000 Marine Power Generator to give him 240V power onboard the vessel at all times.
