Titan 300 EC delivery to St Francis

Post by Magson's » Fri Jul 17, 2015 12:45 pm

Hi everyone, as you all might know we manufacture the Titan range of boats, we would like to share our adventure we had delivering the latest Titan 300 Express Cabin to St francis.

See our short video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKm5cIgoSSU

Leaving Gordon’s bay harbour at 6:00 o clock in the morning on such a beautiful day , fuelled up and ready to go. Traveling at an average speed of 22 knots burning only 58 L/hr.
Took us a total of 12 hours to reach our first stop “Mosselbay harbour” . Filled up with fuel there ready for the next morning. Departed Mosselbay at 7:00 . Leaving the harbour we could do 42 knots !! That’s haw awesome the conditions was. Not long after we had to get right down to 18knots due to major choppy conditions, Going through some rough stuff on the stretch from Witsand to Stillbaai, some places down to 15 knots, “and this is un heard of in a Titan 300 !!”
We decided to go into Knysna for some breakfast, obviously having a good look at KNYSNA HEADS from the back we decided to go for it. Cruising in throw the heads was truly amazing seeing it for the first time myself from a boats eye view.
The condition in the lagoon was like glass just some rain. Called into the harbour master that gave us permission to enter and dock in his harbour. Listening to the harbour master saying it was not the ideal situation to go throw the heads was not quit what we wanted to hear, but we are here know and we can’t postpone the delivery! So when reaching the heads after breakfast we had to plan and count very carefully to see when is the best break to go back out. Thank GOD all went well going over some 3 – 5m swells we made it safely, you can see some of the action on the video clip. From there on we were doing an average speed of about 20 knots , having a Garmin autopilot really made this trip much more comfortable I must say, the stretch from Plett to Cape St Francis was really the longest piece of the trip for me. Approaching the Harbour of St Francis was a good satisfactory feeling , delivering the Titan 300 EC to her new owner’s preferred harbour. I will recommend every every future owner of a Titan 300 EC should do this trip or similar. Cost wise it is not cheap but a truly amazing experience aboard this amazing vessel “Sir Reel” Total distance travelled 340 N/miles in 19 hrs , total fuel used 990 L. avg fuel burn of 2.9 L / Mile. Not bad taking in consideration the conditions of most parts of the voyage. Thank you to the Awesome Magson Marine team for a successful delivery hope the new owner will be very happy for many years to come.
