The engine is a heavy duty commercial grade Lugger Diesel L4276T, 108 HP, 4 cylinder, accompanied with a Walter "V" Drive RV-30 transmission. By using a "V" drive transmission located forward of the engine, the engine can be mounted in the extreme stern of the boat in the cockpit area under an engine box. This keeps engine noise in the interior of the boat to a minimum and provides extremenly easy access to the engine and systems for service. This engine features removable cylinder liners for an "in frame" rebuild and is considered good for well over 20,000 hours between such rebuilds. The current time recorded on the "Hobbs" meter is 1,200 hours and all testing of the engine, including oil analysis, indicates the engine appears to be a low time engine in excellent condition. The cruises to Alaska this boat has done were using the previous 78 HP John Deere engine. Fuel consumption averages 1 to 2 gallons an hour at 1600 RPM with a 600 mile cruising range. The engine is equipped with a electric powered lube oil change pump.
The electrical system has a Heart Link 20 2-battery monitor, with two house batteries and an isolated engine battery. The two AGM batteries were new in 2009 and are maintained by a Xantrex Trucharge 20 on shore power. The boat has a high output, 150 amp, engine driven alternator.
12 volt, 3 batteries charged by: engine, shore power 150 Amp Alternator
Composite Construction with Planing underwater profile, 2 pack finish
Bon Accord is a hard chine cold-molded construction with triple diagonal fir planking, epoxy saturated 3/4" fir laminates over 1 3/8" x 3" framing. She has ironbark guards and bilge rails. Hull, deck, etc, were sanded to epoxy and then coated with 5 coats of "Alexseal" polyurethane (2009).
The machinery configuration of this boat is a little unusual in that the engine is located in the large cockpit area under an engine box and driving a shaft leading forward to a "V" drive transmission forward of the engine to a conventional shaft drive. This effectively isolates the engine from the interior of the boat for much quieter operation and allows very easy access to the engine for service.

One enters the salon/galley area through a companionway door from the very large cockpit. The galley lays out along the starboard side. At the aft end of the salon on the port side is the head compartment. Forward of that is an "L" shaped seating around the fixed salon table. An additional single seat slides out from under the table against the forward bulkhead. The salon table can be dropped to form a six foot berth.
The combination Wallace diesel glass cooktop / heater keeps the cabin very warm. This unit serves both as a cooktop and a forced air cabin heater. In addition a forced air heater using engine coolant is hidden under the salon seating.
Up stairs forward is the pilot house with the helm to starboard and additional seating to port. A sliding door to the side deck is provided on both sides of the pilot house allowing easy access to the side decks and the bow or stern from the pilot house. The raised pilot house has rear windows allowing a 360 degree view from the helm.
Down stairs forward from the pilot house is the bow compartment with a V-berth and removable center filler making a full width berth. The forward V-berth has excellent storage compartments built in and is very large and comfortable. Internal lights have been well placed to allow for night time reading and dressing.
