I am purchasing a new Mikelson 43 boat with a couple Cummins

Customer Question

I am purchasing a new Mikelson 43 boat with a couple Cummins marine 6.7 550hp engines. We are anticipating a long range trip in the future where fuel consumption will be an issue. Can these engines be operated for extended periods, perhaps 40 hours straight or longer at very low rpms in order to obtain maximum miles per gallon? Thank you. Richard A. Zink
