I have new 695 and find biggest problem is lack of range on standard 130l fuel tank as fitted. Realistically 60nm at 2800 rpm cruising speed. Refueling from cans in rolling seas not great option with filler inlet on stern platform! Has anyone fitted a larger replacement or secondary tank?
Yes, I did it. I put another 55 lit tank on the right side. Also, as it was difficult to put another inlet I put diesel transfer pump to pump fuel to and from secondary tank. So far I am satisfied with results, even if boat feels a little bit stern heavy.
What kind of engine do you have, and what is your cruising/max speed ?
695 is a very good boat, with few minor flaws. One of them a certainly small tanks (fuel and water). As I mention before, I have out new 55 lit. fuel tank and fuel transfer pump, and it is much better now. Other than that, I would like to improve my cruising speed, whic is now in 16 knots range (with Volvo TAMD 31P- 150hp).
