Welcome to part one of the Valhalla Boatworks V-Series owner’s guide. Today, we’re taking a closer look at the magnificent V41 Valhalla center console. Watch the video below to delve into the inner workings of the impressive V41 Valhalla bilge, expertly guided by Galati broker, Will Roohan.


What is a bilge on a boat?

The bilge on a boat refers to the lowest compartment or area of the hull. It is essentially the bottom part of the boat’s interior. The bilge is designed to collect any water that may enter the boat, whether it is from rain, waves, or leaks, and prevent it from accumulating and causing damage. It serves as a drainage system, allowing the water to be pumped out or manually removed. The Valhalla V41 takes the bilge to a whole new level of sophistication and functionality. Not only does it serve its primary purpose of collecting and draining water, but it also houses various essential systems and components.



Stainless Fuel Manifold on the V41 Valhalla Bilge

As we venture into the bilge, our attention is immediately drawn to the gleaming polished stainless fuel manifold. This particular V41 model boasts impressive quad Mercury 450s, making it a powerhouse on the water.

Now, let’s talk about the fuel system on this incredible center console. The fuel manifold features four valves, allowing each engine to pull fuel from any of the available fuel tanks. Currently, the setup is as follows: the port engine draws its fuel from the port tank, while the two center engines rely on the center tank for their power. Finally, the starboard engine pulls its fuel from the starboard tank. This configuration ensures a balanced distribution of fuel and optimal performance.


Flexibility of the Fuel System

One of the remarkable advantages of this system on the 41′ Valhalla is its flexibility. In case you encounter bad fuel or experience an engine issue, you can easily switch the fuel source for any engine. Whether it’s the port, center, or starboard tank, any engine can pull from any tank without any hassle. This feature gives you peace of mind, knowing that you can utilize all your fuel reserves without worrying about complications.


Benefits of a Bilge

The bilge on the V41 Valhalla allows for easy access and maintenance, ensuring that any issues or repairs can be addressed promptly. Having these systems located in the bilge not only saves space in other areas of the boat but also allows for a more organized and efficient layout.

Another benefit of a well-designed bilge is the ability to house additional storage. In the case of the 41′ Valhalla, the bilge provides ample space for fuel tanks, ensuring an extended range and optimal performance on the water. This eliminates the need for external fuel storage, maximizing the usable space on the boat for other amenities and equipment.
