Ilikai runs economically at 11 knots at 47 LPH or is capable of 30 knot sprint. Ilikai is in ready to go condition with motors, gearboxes, and genset all just serviced. The boat has been very well looked after and is in excellent condition
The hull is of moderate deadrise with minimal longitudinal twist, with a fine entry and relatively high chines with two strakes per side and a long, shallow, centreline keel. The aggressive bow angle is offset by a reverse deck sheer with an expansive flush foredeck.
The general accommodation arrangement is of three cabins, two heads and a sumptuous saloon/helm/galley area. Ilikai's is interior is mostly teak but trimmed with modern fabrics.
The main cabin is right forward against a bulkhead capped. The double berth, with a custom-made innersprung mattress, is located on the centreline, and the cabin has its own ensuite shower and head in separate compartments.
Detailing has made for stylish head and shower areas with white lacquer finish, gold plated taps and shower fittings, Corian bench tops and teak/holly flooring finished with a thick Epiglass lacquer which gives a deep gloss coating. There are two heads and showers on the boat with the guest's being to port abaft the for'ard cabin and of a similar
layout to the main ensuite. There are two other cabins on Ilikai, the one to port containing three single berths and the other to starboard is the main guest accommodation containing a double lower berth and single upper. There is a there is a big overhead hatch to provide fresh air, while a large linen cupboard is opposite.
Ilikai's saloon follows a fairly standard layout pattern with the galley and dining area to port, and the helm seat, bar, drinks fridge and entertainment area to starboard. It is in the saloon that the decor is at its most striking, with the dark teak tones. The ceiling panels are white vinyl offset by teak battens while the round lights and swivelling eyeball-type halogen spotlights-all on dimmer switches- highlight the styling.
The helm area is reminiscent of an aircraft cockpit, such is its impressive array of dials and gauges. Ilikai has been fitted with all new Simrad electronics package with 3 x touch screen chart plotters, 4G radar, Auto pilot and sounder.
Access to the wiring, fuses and electronic control boxes for the helm station is through a large panel in the guest's starboard cabin, which, when opened, reveals a neat and tidy installation.
The wide helm seat also contains a freezer and the boat's icemaker, liquor cabinet and bar area. Abaft the helm seat are various areas of glass stowage, a fore and aft settee and the entertainment area. The latter contains a television. The audio system has a purpose built cupboard, but with it being next to the main door, a solution had to be found to the cupboard door being in the way when opened. Household door hinges allow the door to open and then slide down the side of the cupboard, out of the way; a neat solution and indicative of the increasing usage of household hardware in modern boats.
The galley, opposite the helm area, is U shaped with a microwave and electric ovens, acres of Corian benches and plenty of stowage. Corian is also used for two roller-shutter stowage cupboards, one each side of the microwave which provide an attractive feature in the galley. These were designed by Alan Warwick and made by the Corian suppliers. There is a front opening fridge, a waste disposal unit in one of the twin stainless steel sinks, and a large rubbish bin under the bench. The main dining area is abaft the galley, with a solid, free-standing wooden table surrounded by comfortable seating. A stainless steel sliding door leads out into the expansive cockpit; expansive because the boat is intended as a game fisher. The main rod stowage is in a cupboard behind the flying bridge access ladder and next to this is the boat's main freezer. Stowage in the cockpit is impressive, with lockers right the way round.
Live bait tanks are located under the boarding platform. There is also a fresh or salt-water shower for washing off on the wide boarding platform. A lot of attention has been given to keeping potential line snags away from the cockpit, so the mooring cleats are mounted down low and the mooring lines are led to them through slots in the deck.
The anchor tackle is contained in two large lockers, one each side of the central anchor winch. From the winch to the bow, a recessed stainless steel plate provides protection for the decking from the anchor chain as it is raised and lowered.
Up on the flying bridge most of the helm area instrumentation is duplicated, making an impressive sight ahead of the large helm seat. There is also guest seating along each side and a separate fridge for bridge drinks. A separate VHF radio and stereo system are also fitted.
Ilikai is powered by a pair of M.A.N. V10 diesels producing 820 Hp each. These run through three-inch Avesta shafts to Michigan 34 x 36 inch for-bladed propellers. This combination is enough to give the boat over 30 knots of top speed - in fact she's been measured at 32.5 and 33.5 knots through the measured mile. Even more impressive is the way the boat climbs onto the plane with hardly a change in attitude and the speed with which she covers the ground. She seems to go a long way in an awfully short time. The engines share space with a Northern lights 8 KVA generator. Ilikai is not reliant on the generator, with most systems and lighting being run off a 24 volt system. Most 240-volt fittings can be run off the new 3,000 watt inverter. The boat has two battery banks, one comprising 12 two-volt Lucas traction cells and the other a pair of standard 12-volt batteries for household use. Ilikai carries 4546 litres (1000 gallons) of diesel in four tanks and 1364 litres (300 gallons) of water in two tanks. Ilikai will certainly enhance the reputation Alan Tongs Boatbuilders have for quality work, as they have made a superb job of this luxury launch.
