April 2017 – Seatorque shaft system now backed by Twin Disc

Twin Disc supports the oil-filled shaft system in long-range cruisers like the new Riviera 68 and 72

Twin Disc Pacific has been appointed the Exclusive Distributor for the innovative Seatorque Marine Propulsion Systems. The enclosed shaft system is a major feature on the new Riviera 68 and 72 Sports Motor Yacht set for a 2017 Sydney International Boat Show debut.

Unlike traditional diesel inboard boats that require shaft alignment, the Seatorque system uses a coupling or bolt-on shaft system called a Boss for short. The totally enclosed, oil-filled, self-contained, shaft and thrust bearing assembly is supplied as a complete unit from transmission output coupling to propeller end. The shaft system uses rubber mounts and attaches to the hull structure, with a flexible connection to the propulsion engine. This ensures shaft-line noise and vibration are eliminated at the source…

Fleming 65 Systems Overview

Chris Conklin on watch on Tony Fleming’s new 65. VENTURE II incorporates several new, technologically advanced systems.

When Fleming Yachts asked if I’d contribute to Venturer magazine again I was delighted to do so, under one condition. I insisted upon sea trialing the components about which they’d asked me to write. That request was granted while I made a passage from Stornoway in northern Scotland to Reykjavik, Iceland, aboard VENTURE II, Tony Fleming’s personal Fleming 65.

October 2008 – Power & Motoryacht | “Exclusive: DONZI R-80”

SPOTLIGHT ON: Shaft System

If you plan on building an 80-foot sportfisherman that’s capable of more than 40 mph, you’d better build her strong. Donzi Yachts believes it’s done just that. Bob Roscioli founded the company 22 years ago, purchasing the rights to the Donzi name from the legendary Dick Genth. Although Donzi Yachts by Roscioli remains a separate company from Donzi Marine—its boats are all over 50 feet, while Donzi Marine’s are considerably smaller—and its strength is its traditional way of building. According to Roscioli, the construction process for the R-80 is similar to the boats he originally built. Although some of the methods may seem like overkill nowadays, Roscioli’s simple declaration can’t be argued with: “It’s tough,” he says.
