  • This video is about an Atlantic crossing

  • aboard a super yacht

  • Every year at the end of the European summer

  • many of the big boats make the migration

  • across the Atlantic to the Caribbean

  • for the northern hemisphere winter

  • But the technical side of these big boats

  • for me is really interesting

  • So I'd like to share a peek into my daily routine

  • as chief engineer aboard one of these big boats

  • on a crossing from Gibraltar

  • to St Martin in the Caribbean

  • The crossing took 16 days.

  • We departed Gibraltar at sunrise

  • after refuelling the night before

  • Anyway, lets grab a coffee

  • and I'll take you down the engine room for a look around

  • These are our 2 main engines

  • 2x V12 Caterpillars

  • their rated at 1500 kW each

  • that's about 2000 Hp

  • There's 2 of everything on many of the systems on here

  • so there's 2 pumps on all of your critical systems

  • so you can switch over if one fails

  • Small workshop

  • Lets step into the control room.

  • It's a bit quieter in here

  • and cooler too!

  • Control room

  • while they drive the boat from upstairs

  • on the bridge

  • the nerve centre of the boat is down here

  • in the control room, in the engine room.

  • Here's a mimic panel view

  • of the tankage on the boat.

  • fuel and water tanks

  • We left Gibraltar with 160,000 litres of fuel

  • and we only burned 70,000 litres for the voyage,

  • travelling at slow speed.

  • We could carry about 50,000 litres of water.

  • That's our air conditioning plant.

  • We got 2 out of 3 compressors running.

  • They chill water that gets pumped around the boat

  • to air handlers that cools the interior.

  • Here's our electrical load.

  • We've got 2 out of 3 generators on the board.

  • Producing 120 kW each

  • The main engines are controlled from the bridge

  • but we've got backup control in the engine room too.

  • Something from the engineers library ;)

  • Even though we've got digital data

  • for many of the systems that are running

  • We still keep a manual log, every 4 hours

  • with temperatures, pressures.

  • Here's one of the generators

  • a 6 cylinder Caterpillar

  • in a sound enclosure.

  • These are our water makers.

  • With both of them running

  • we can make 20 litres of fresh water

  • out of sea water, every minute.

  • That's nearly 30 tonnes a day of fresh water

  • which is pretty cool!

  • I used to log our position on my iPhone

  • I didn't trust them upstairs ;)

  • In the fo'c'sle

  • at sea.

  • Just doing a bit of repair work here

  • changing a, gauge

  • There's always something to do.

  • This is only a tiny portion of the food we had onboard

  • we had mountains of food.

  • There was crew only onboard for the trip.

  • There were no guests for this voyage.

  • Fire and safety drills are part of the routine of living onboard

  • and being at sea was no exception.

  • This was our audio visual server rack

  • including the controls for the Vsat

  • for our satellite internet connection

  • and the sat TV's

  • these were logged on a routine bases as well

  • We were lucky with the weather on this trip

  • the wind increased steadily

  • throughout the voyage

  • but it was always a following sea

  • I even had time to grow a beard :)

  • After 16 beautiful days at sea

  • Land ahoy!

  • I love the routine you get into

  • and the peace and tranquility

  • out on the ocean on a trip like this

  • It was almost a shame for it to end.

  • So, is it the same time every single day?

  • Yep

  • I hope you enjoyed this trip across the Atlantic with me.

  • Thanks for watching...
