Centek Gen-Kleen Systems

The Gen-Kleen system is a  pollution-control technology for marine generator sets. Gen-Kleen integrates with your generators wet exhaust  system to remove hydrocarbon pollution from the exhaust water before it is  returned to the natural environment.

Gen-Kleen removes hydrocarbon pollutants including sheen,  soot, and unspent gasoline and diesel fuels.

Why use Gen-Kleen?

  • Comply with existing and upcoming marina and  port mandates regulating unsightly generator discharge.
  • Enjoy a sheen-free setting for  swimming, diving, and fishing.
  • Keep the hull of the boat clean of  soot deposits during generator use.
  • Be ecologically responsive to the  sensitive marine environment.

How does it work?

The Gen-Kleen system begins by separating  the raw cooling water from the exhaust gases.   While the dry exhaust gases are vented to atmosphere, the raw cooling  water is scrubbed by a filtration system.   The filters are impregnated with a patented formula that binds and  captures hydrocarbons while allowing clean water to pass through.  Clean water is then returned to the  environment.

What are the features?

  • To accommodate different engine room  layouts, the Gen-Kleen system is offered in two basic models.  The Compact Gen-Kleen integrates many of the  system components into a single package. The Component Gen-Kleen allows the user to disperse the components  throughout the engine compartment as space allows.
  • The Gen-Kleen system is fail-safe.  Functionality of the generator set is never  compromised by functionality of the Gen-Kleen system.
  • The Gen-Kleen system is built to withstand the harsh marine  engine room environment.  Its  corrosion-resistant design uses only high-temperature fiberglass and 316L  stainless steel wetted parts.
  • Filters are easily user-changeable as needed.  Filter lifespans vary widely (due to great  differences in generator exhaust pollution levels), but typical users report  normal lifespans of 100-200 generator hours.
  • The Gen-Kleen system includes a selectable bypass  mode.  Owners may choose to run the  system any time the generator is on and discharge only clean water, or, they  may choose to run the system only as needed and preserve filter life.

ISA Launches 50-Meter Superyacht: “Papi Du Papi” in Italy

ISA, the Italian superyacht shipyard announed the launching of yet another yacht recently. ISA just  launched the second hull in their 50-meter series, christened “Papi Du  Papi”.

The design of Papi Du Papi is by Andrea Vallicelli while the  interior is by Francesco Paszkowski. The displacement superyacht is  finished in all-white paint with grey underwater hull. As on the well  famed 47-meter series, the 50-meter yacht continues the stairway to  heaven concept connecting all three decks at the aft.

Papi Du Papi was built with a steel hull and aluminum  superstructure. The aft of the hull houses the yacht’s beach club that  is cased in generously sized glass doors. She is powered by a pair of  Caterpillar 3512C engines that are expected to run her to 16-knots.

With the Milennia PRV20 from Prospec Electronics there’s no reason not to take a portable media device for a day out on the water.  This new portable media receiver is Bluetooth capable, letting boaters stream music wirelessly from any Bluetooth-enabled device.

Once the device is paired to the PRV20, users can control the music selection and volume through the stereo receiver or through the portable media device.  No docking station or expensive cables are required. A boater can even place the media device in their pocket, glove box, cabin or day bag up to 30′ away while the music
continues to stream.  This allows extra protection for those valuable Blackberries, Androids or Apple products.

The MILPRV20 has a strong internal amplifier of 45W x 4 and contains an aluminum heat sink for efficient heat
dissipation.  It also features AM/FM radio, USB and auxiliary inputs.  The compact unit measures only 5-1/4″ L x 3-1/4″ W x 1-3/4″ D.

Prospec Electronics’ Milennia PRV20 retails for $169.95.

Bellingham Yachts
Announced as New Dealer for Cutwater Boats

Fluid Motion,builder of Cutwater Boats, has grown its dealer network with the addition of Bellingham Yachts as the Pacific Northwest dealer for the trailerable cruisers which debuted at boat shows earlier this year. The Cutwater 26 and Cutwater 28 are the newest additions to Bellingham Yachts fleet, owned by industry veterans and brothers, Nick and Dean Ouilette. The dealership will be receiving its first Cutwater models—a blue 26 and taupe 28 by the end of August and will exhibit the boats at shows this fall.Cutwater-26-starboard-turn

The team at Bellingham Yachts has over 27 years of experience in sales and customer service stemming in part from their role as one of the oldest powerboat dealers for Sabre Yachts in the U.S. “In addition, we have a service department which I oversee that ensures our customers are well cared for and loyal,” says Nick Ouilette, co-owner of Bellingham Yachts. The company also represents Sabre and Back Cove but the Cutwater fills a void as their customers move down in size. Due to the trailerable size of Cutwaters, the compact boats offer customers flexibility of use.

Nick Ouilette knows the design preferences of his customers and comments on the benefit of adding Cutwater Boats to his fleet, “The traditional styling of Cutwater compliments Sabre and Back Cove which appeals to a broad spectrum of customers.”

Bellingham Yachts is conveniently located next to a four lane boat launch and the dealership has gated docks in front of the office giving security to the boats they represent as well as a high level of customer service due to the ease with which clients can sea trial new boats. The group also manages their own charter fleet and may add a Cutwater 28 to the fleet allowing customers to truly “try before buying.”

Cutwater Boats have an innovative semi-displacement hull shape, practical interior layout and quality standard equipment making them easy to handle and efficient to cruise. They are equipped with a Yanmar diesel engine, Garmin electronics, Diamond/Sea-Glaze windows, and bow and stern thrusters come standard for ease of operation and maneuverability. Bellingham Yachts will work with buyers on additional equipment options so their Cutwater is commissioned to fit their cruising needs and styles. The Cutwater 26 and 28 are ideal boats for couples or families cruising in the Pacific Northwest.

Cutwater 28

Bellingham Yachts will have the Cutwater 26 and 28 on exhibit at the Seattle Boats Afloat Show Sept. 14-18.
