Managing Exhaust on a Powerboat

July 1, 2010

Riviera 43 Open Flybridge

At the Sydney International Boat Show on July 29, the Australian pleasure boat-maker, Riviera, will reveal its latest model, the 43 Open Flybridge.

Riviera’s CEO, John Anderson, anticipates a successful release, as the company’s most recent models have all been well received on the pleasure boating market, BYM News reports.

“The sales performance of our new models, including the 5800 Yacht, 5000 Sport Yacht, 51 with IPS and now the 43 with IPS have all generated a significant volume of sales,” Anderson told the news source.

The vessel includes sleeping accommodations for up to six people in two large cabins. The Volvo Penta Inboard Performance System (IPS) is designed for greater fuel economy and lower exhaust levels.

Managing boat exhaust is a consideration of many boaters, from yachters to captains of smaller powerboats. The manifold collects exhaust gasses from the engine’s cylinder, cools the gasses with water, and pushes them through an exhaust hose, outside the stern.

Generic exhaust manifolds bought for a V8 or V6 engine are sold in sets, including both right- and left-handed models. Boats with ‘straight’ engines of 3, 4 or 6 cylinders usually contain a single manifold and riser located near the top and along the cylinder bank.

These smaller boats can use generic or aftermarket exhaust manifolds to replace a vessel’s original equipment.
