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.

Pearson Composite’s new Alerion Express 33 runs silently even under power - by EastBayRI.com

A new boat engine constructed by Warren’s Pearson Composites uses a Master volt Lithium-Ion electric saildrive system to navigate the waterways without the use of gasoline.

The motor of the Alerion Express 33 can travel for 15 to 20 miles on a single battery charge, depending on the vessel’s speed, crew numbers, wind and weather, EastBayRI.com reports. Additional battery packs can be added to extend the boat’s range.

Boaters who have tested the vessel reported that the quiet operation and smooth navigation were the most surprising attributes of the Alerion Express.

“I didn’t realize we were under power until I noticed our wake and saw moored boats passing us,” wrote one review, according to the news source. “It took time to adjust my behavior, throttling back when underway.”

Barr Marine Exhaust System Parts

Despite this recent design breakthrough, the vast majority of boats still operate on either diesel or gasoline fuel, and require replacement mechanical parts to maintain proper function.

Internal combustion marine engines contain a marinized exhaust manifold that dispenses exhaust from its cylinders. High velocity exhaust, long-term use and harsh environmental conditions can threaten the life of this part. Barr manufactures replacement manifolds that can be substituted for corroded, failing manifolds.

Even if you don’t own a cutting-edge electric powered boat, you can make you own boat engine operate efficiently and offer a long service life with quality replacement marine parts.
