Power Profile


Operational Check # NSW091
The Nepenthe was originally powered by an 180HP Perkins and now with the new John Deere, the engine is noticeably quieter, with improved fuel consumption and increased vessel speed. Owner Rob 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 Sydney
