About S/V Jane'O

S/V Jane'O

Jane’O is a 39’ long, 21’ wide catamaran with a draft of 4’. You’ll see S/V a lot which stands for “sailing vessel”. On paper, she displaces about 15,400 pounds of water, but actually weighs closer to 33,000 pounds (at least according to the scale at Bay Marine). She has two Yanmar 3GM30F engines, rated at 27 horsepower at 3600 RPM.

Here’s a layout diagram:

She has 4 cabins, each of which has a separate door and a sink. Each cabin has space for a full size mattress (currently there is a mattress in only one of the four rooms, although we have a second ready to install now). There are two heads, both with showers. The port side head hasn’t been used in a long time and is just used primarily as a wet locker today. She holds 107 gallons of water, and 120 gallons of diesel fuel. The burn rate for these engines is about .8 gallons an hour (each) so cruise range, assuming you just use one engine at a time, is about 6 straight days (3 days if you use both engines).
