Rare Cummins Twin 6BTA-5.9 turbo aftercooled 5.9 liter inline-6 diesel model!

Over 3,000 Trojan F32s were made, and all were originally gas engines. We know of four that have been re-powered with diesels, and this is the only one we know of with Cummins (others were 2 Volvos and a Cat). The Cummins 6BTA is one of the most popular and reliable diesels ever built, and they both start every time and run perfect. With 1:1 transmissions, we turn a 17x20 Nibral prop and run up to 28 knots, with cruise at 500RPM idle at 8knots, she is super economical - about 2 miles/gallon total.

We are forced to sell our beloved Trojan F32 because my wife has battled cancer for 7.5 years and has now lost the use of her left arm. We are downsizing to an older Montauk 17 that I am restoring. We have owned Viva Mahia (slang for "Celebrate the Mahi") since 2005, and keep her here at our dock, where we have done a lot of upgrades over the years. We will miss her...

Fishing rods/reels not included, but some are available for sale...
