PANORAMA FF46 SAILS! MAIDEN TRIP TO HISWA AMSTERDAM BOAT SHOW
The Steeler Panorama FF46 was launched just in time for the Hiswa boat show last weekend and set out immediately for Amsterdam Marina.
The intended feeling of spaciousness and clear views has become an impressive reality: sitting on the salon couch you see Dutch skies, a turbulent IJsselmeer and the contours of Urk, Lelystad and, in the distance, Enkhuizen passing by the panorama windows. In the meantime you can have a chat with the skipper from the salon in the completely open wheelhouse.
The waves were visible but only barely perceivable on board the Panorama. The sharp bow cut through with impressive ease at a cruising speed of 16 km/h. At this speed the noise meter produces a superb score of 67 Db. The Panorama's fuel consumption at 6 knots is 3.4 litres an hour for each engine. The fuel consumption at cruising speed is 14 litres an hour at 2000 revs. The propulsion of the first Panorama FF46 is provided by 2 Yanmar 6LBY3 160 Hp 6-cylinder engines.
We are planning to give the introduction of the Panorama FF a celebratory tint at 2 pm on the Saturday afternoon of 6 September and you are warmly invited to be there.
