The Watergeus was lengthened in 1961. She was build as a 26 meters boat.
The nice thing about her new dimensions of the boat, I found several different measures. I believe the following ones are correct:
- Length: 38.98 meters
- Width: 5.24 meters
- Draft: 1 meter
- Brand: DAF
- Type: 1160 6 cylinder
Gearbox & steering
- Type: PRM Hydraulic
- Steering: Mechanical by wheel
The original generator is broken It used to be Lister 2cyl. / 5,8kw (220V/380V)
The new generator is:
- Brand: Petter 1cyl. 3000rpm
- Type: 4.4KVA (220V)
A spare 1 cylinder Lister engine is aboard, will likely be used for a pump.
The capacity as a commercial vessel were not enough for living, so I added an extra fuel tank and a brand new waste water tank (regulations for the mooring explicitly asked for this tank). I prefer to live as independent as possible, therefore the capacity is a bit higher then on a normal houseboat.
- Fuel tanks: 3200 litters
- Clean water: 6000 litters (4000 in the front and 2000 in the engine room)
- Dirty water: 3000 litters
