  1. Thanks Tristan – nice content, as usual – I get my "fix" for super yachts through your channel. Very professional and informative. It's amazing to see how complex these ships are, and you get a real appreciation for the fact that committing to buying/owning one is similar to that of a small business – and perhaps a very unprofitable one, at that!

  2. Alfa Laval make separators, i used to work on them on the big merchant many ships.
    Talking generators: ideally how much landpower do you need to not have to run on the generators? Also if you have a disruption on the landpower supply will the generator(s) kick-in automatically i.e. are they on standby?

  5. It's crazy that Tristan can wear an expensive sweater and give a full tour of an engine room without worrying about ruining his clothes. It's not normal for an engine room to be so clean!

  6. Thanks for the tour. One question: while underway you are running the generator constantly? I thought these massive engines create enough power through alternators for all electrical needs…

  7. There's no such thing as "an Alfa LAval"

    Alfa LAval is the name of a company that makes Fuel purifiers, and there are several other companies that make them.

  8. Hi Tristan, I'm currently living in Malta and am interested in boating/yachts and was wondering what liscences you would need and such. I've seen your crew stories of how you started in port Banus and was wondering if a ICC is enough or what else I would need. As well as how to get started in the industry. Sorry if you've already got a video about it but I couldn't find anything. thanks

  10. Very impressive video ! You did a good job of highlighting the cramped quarters in the Engine room As a retired chief engineer, you gave me reason to look back in time & reminisce about a job I loved so much. Do you know if it's feasible to use a small Westphalia centrifuge instead of the Racor filters to remove the bad ju-ju from the lube oil ? The ngine room is beautiful with the shiny shrouds & exhaust covers… Control room too.

  11. In the states, in biggest problem is finding a qualified marine mechanic. Outboards=fair, inboards, IO’s = moderate, yachts(gasoline)=difficult, yachts (diesels)=hard, mega yachts= almost impossible to find a knowledgeable/qualified mechanic.
    You may need to fly a repair crew in, so if you’re not made of money, you educate and fix things yourself. If you let things go, it will fail, most likely at the worst possible time and place. Most high end yachts in the states 10 years and older are in terrible mechanical condition and are not seaworthy.

  13. Awesome, this is one of the videos I've actually been hoping you would do as a smaller boat captain! Well done, and would love to see exactly each and every step to see how you transfer fuel, and change oil, etc, love this stuff!!! Thanks again!

  14. If you had one thing to change in the engine room, what would you do?

  16. Hi Tristan, is the Giffinator still with you? Didn't see her for a while now. …

  17. If you want to see a REAL engine room find a Hines Farley and ask the Capt.if you can see it. They're as much a work of art as a functioning engine room puts this room to shame.

  18. Great video never get bored with the engine room. I hope as time goes on you will have videos on fiberglass repair( damage done last summer) painting , varnishing and polishing. Also a tour of the bridge ( radar , navigation systems etc…) and a brief demonstration on Bridge Resource Management.

  25. Does slav need an assistant engineer?

  26. How do you produce hot water for showers, how hot ? and how much?

    Reply
  27. I'm curious, and maybe some of this was addressed in previous videos, about the main engine exhaust and if it provides a "bubble cushion" for increased fuel efficiency. Also, what are the large stainless boxes seeming to be part of the exhaust; this is where I'd expect to see air intake.

  28. Tristan, how warm does it get inside the engine room while the engines are running? I imagine those engines and gens produce a lot of heat.

  29. The water maker looks like a coffee machine, I’ll have a large cappuccino please 😀

  32. Hi Tristan and crew. Having recently serviced and repainted and installed a D6 engine for my brother. Installed all pipework, exhaust, heat exchanger, seacocks etc. I can say it's been a challenge from fitting engine beds to completion. Your knowledge of Awol is extensive, no question you are No1 Super Yacht Captain. Great video. Thanks.

  33. Wonderful explanations, thanks! But didn't you forgot to talk a little about the engines in the engine room?

    Reply
  34. Anyone know how many raffle tickets have been sold to date. I don't FB, so don't have the app installed….? Cheers.

  41. Thank you, very informative. Keep up the great vlog…

  42. The "manual fuel shut-off" is ALSO used for "run-away"…If any of your viewers don't understand just look up "run away diesel" ( had it happen in my past AND manual fuel/air starvation is the only "fix") CHEERS on another awesome vid!!!!!!!
