Caribbean Sea catamaran operator finds improved performance with Isoflex engine mounts
Conocemos Navegando operates a fleet of catamarans that provide fast, safe and cost-effective travel for residents and tourists between San Andres and Providencia Island in the Caribbean Sea. Built by Gold Coast Yachts, these vessels take a heavy beating in these waters, and it goes without saying that keeping vibration at a minimum is important for passenger safety and comfort.
The ‘El Sensation’ is a 55 foot power catamaran with 2 x Cummins QSB 5.9 305 HP engines. The team at Conocemos Navegando successfully installed Isoflex’s M90-20S mounts with ANS adjusters at the time of refit and experienced immediate improvement and less vibration in this planing catamaran.
The wave-piercing catamaran, ‘El Splendor’, is the larger in the fleet at 70 feet long, with 2 x Cummins QSL9 405 HP engines. It was outfitted at the outset with Isoflex heavy duty M130 mounts with 24mm AST swivel adjusters. Conocemos Navegando reports excellent performance in both vessels with Isoflex mounts having been installed.
