The engines will turn into Rentjes WAF-772 gears with rations of 7.087:1 and turning 87-inch Sound propellers in 88-inch Rice nozzles. The boat is designed for a bollard pull of 60 tons. Accommodations will be provided for up to eight people. Tankage includes 85,000 US gallons for fuel, 20,000 gallons water and 1500 gallons for lube oil.
