The current Owner purchased this Viking 60 from it's original Owner in 2013, at the time a contracted CAT specialist, Marine Diesel Analysts Inc. conducted the survey @ 3900hrs. The engines were found great with very low fuel consumption at 25,000 gallons per engine and an overall load factor under 20%. These engines are designed to consume 200,000 gls. or approximately 8,500 hrs. before a major overhaul. Scheduling preventive maintenance with the assistance of the fuel consumption is the preferred method over engine hours. As stated by Caterpillar the load factor for pleasure craft engines may be "up to 30%". Expected engine life is predicted by the average power that is demanded; the average power that is demanded is based on the fuel consumption over a period of time. Conclusion was that the engines were treated correctly, great shape, with no negative history and could be treated as having half the time. Based on the above average conditions of these engines the current Owner was able to extend the Caterpillar warranties 2500hrs or until 5/2019. In almost 5 years since the purchase only 800+/- hrs. have been added.
