Looking aft, I did not remove carpet to fully access starboard engine but it looked as good as the port, Note the step tread, between the engines, Atlantic fitted the engines slightly closer together than Broom might have done, for two reasons. 1, MORE FORWARD THRUST.. slightly better push when they are close together( better fuel efficiency) coupled with the props being slighly deeper down the Vee of the hull so better "View " of water, but that does increase draught a touch..), and 2, if using just one at a time pottering down rivers, or Canals, then they require less rudder angle ( resistance) to run the boat straight.
so down sides.. well there is slightly less space between the engines for working servicing access ( upside is there is better room outside the engines for access) and other slight down side, there is slightly less turning moment when spinning the boat with one ahead and one astern, ( still a very easy boat to manoeuver though)
head on view shows this on another Atlantic 42 boat ( but ignore the Five blade propellers in this shot, )
forward of port engine, Hotwater tank, with good size engineroom fan unit above,
Forward end of engineroom, "Oil Change System", Electric pump system to aid changes of oil (very nice )
side view of similar hull showing shallow skeg keel, This adds directional stability at slow speeds, and also helps reduce slamming at speed at sea. But it is not deep enough to offer any prtection from the ground to the stern gear. ( just like a standard planing hull)
