The huge engine compartment makes it easy to work all four sides of the engines.
At Carolina Classic, we use only the highest-grade materials and quality parts to assure the boats’ reliability. The mechanical systems not only exceed industry standards, they also provide extra safety and ease-of-operation every time you take her out. Then, whenever possible, we build-in a back-up or redundant system, just in case.
The freshwater tubing system is sure-fitting, bacteria-resistant polybutelene, instead of copper or composites, which are more inclined to corrode or fail in cold climates. All our diesel-powered boats include fuel-water separator filters for engines and generators, multiple bilge pumps with engage indicators, fuel priming systems, and hydraulic steering.
The engine compartments are works of art. First, they’re oversized, so you can work on all sides of the engines. All the components are logically organized and easy to access. The compartment walls have carefully installed insulation to reduce noise. The exhaust systems for engines and generator are separate, to eliminate carbon build-up when both aren’t running simultaneously. And there’s a built-in fire-suppression system that activates automatically.
On the underside, we use stainless steel rudders and tie-rods, bronze struts and dripless rudder ports and shaft seals, all proven to hold up best against saltwater.
The hydrodynamic propellers are computer-precision carved from a single block of nybral for maximum strength and perfect balance.
