Well-Designed Engine Rooms, by Capt. Richard Thiel (continued)
Cruisers 54 Cantius
The Boat: A big, fast express that’s exceptionally roomy, thanks to IPS propulsion.
The ER Design : The Cantius ER enjoys 6 feet, 4 inches of headroom and access on three sides. Racor fuel-water separators and Algae-X filters are clustered on the forward bulkhead, where they’re easy to get to but don’t create obstructions in the wide catwalk. Battery boxes are elevated, making them resistant to rising water, and four perfectly positioned LED lights provide ample illumination, even in the corners. A soft patch on the overhead allows for engine extraction.
