09 Oct KE IV
We have just launched the 4th Stormforce 11 for Kintyre Express, named KE IV. This is Redbay Stormforce 11 hull number 76 for Kintyre Express based in Campbeltown and is the first to be powered by twin V8 Yanmar’s (the new Toyota Landcruiser engine), 320hp driving Yanmar ZT370 TRP drives. Although shorter than the Yamaha’s they are wider and come standard with a high riser exhaust, but they still fit into our standard engine bay. They provide instand power with the fly-by-wire throttle and no smoke or turbo lag, and acheived a top speed of 39.5 knots.
We wish Kintyre Express all the best with their new addition and look forward to the official naming ceremony in Campbeltown in the next few weeks.
