Prout 50 Quasar capacities

Postby tolly » Sun Jan 12, 2014 10:46 pm

Hi!

I have a 1980 Quasar and I get a little confused about how much the fresh water capacity is.
Reading different specifications it says 2 X 100 imp gallons (appr 900 ltrs), but as far as I can see, from the time
I have sailed her, I would rather say 2 X 50 imp gallons (450 ltrs)...at the most. Since only water in her keels, I can't
see where she could keep all that water that is supposed to be there.
Does anyone have the correct numbers in this or does it maybe differ depending on what particular boat it is?

Another question...does anyone know what load capacity the Quasar has, that is how much necessary or
unnecessary junk can I load her with on a longer journey?

Thank you,
Rolf Dahlberg,

We have a 19 89 Quasar and the capacities from the former owners are:

Water 164 Litres per tank x 2, ( in Keels) and Fuel 421 Litres x 2.

We have graduated measuring sticks for both and they seem accurate as best as I can judge.

As to the loaded weight *( displacement) well ours was quoted to us as empty weight 16 tonnes , 2 tonnes of ships "ballast" and then 2 tonnes water and fuel.

So all up fully laden about 20 tonnes ( 20,000 kg)
