The ALPHA 42 catamaran possesses an engine room that is well laid out, spacious and easy to access. All the service components are in easy reach and clearly marked. Note the insulation on the forward bulkhead which is completely watertight from the living accommodations. The engine is a beauty: Twin Yanmar 3YM SD30’s. The main electrical panel on the Alpha 42 is a no-nonsense, serious piece of kit as well ! It is not one of these 150$ – 12 breaker jokes you find on some other catamarans but a real pro-grade beauty made by Paneltronics. It contains a total of 60 separate breakers and switches for both 12V and 110V AC current. Line Voltage and Load Currents are both displayed in two large precision gauges as well as the entire switchboard to select between Shore Power and Generator are located on this panel.
