boats - TPBS 200

Found this during our vacation this year (2014) in Borgholm harbour on Öland island. This is a civilian version of the 200 boat I mention about on my Combat Boat page.

The original version had three Scania engines of about 300 hp each. These have long since been replaced with either three new Scania or two Volvo Penta at about 450 hp / engine. The advantage of two 450hp instead of three 300hp is that the engineer has more work space in the engine room and the boat is more maneuverable. It runs like a tank, for example, port engine REVERSE starboard engine FORWARD -> vessel rotates around its axis to port (left). The 200 boat is now available in many different varieties, depending if / when / where they have been refurbished, no boat is now alike.
