Power Profile


The Andante was originally powered by a 120HP Ford Lehman engines and now with the new John Deere, the engines are noticeably quieter, with improved fuel consumption and increased vessel speed. Owner Peter says that On Board Engineering did a great job on the installation with his new John Deere package, and looks forward to reliable quiet cruising on the waterways of Pittwater and beyond.
