Speed & Distance
With all the features, it is no surprise that the Alegria is a hefty 30,000 lbs but we found the twin 6 cylinder, four-stroke Cummins 500hp diesels moved this boat nicely. The tiny sport wheel and even tinier ZF single lever controls are great.
From rest, the Alegria gathers speed in a rush that takes the boat to planning speeds in as little as 10 seconds. The Cummins’ are turbocharged and after cooled engines that were quiet and pleasant sounding. The engines are straight shaft installations and that helps keep the bow down while planning off. Tracking was accurate, the ride very solid and we could cruise at around 1,600 rpm doing about 20 mph, with a little tab down.
Top speed was 34.8 mph at 2,660 rpm and we could haul the wheel over hard with little drama. At 30,000 lbs, this is no nimble sport boat but it handled very well for its size. The Alegria seems to do everything well in fact.
The cockpit is one big entertainment area with seating for a dozen or more; lights, sound system and the refreshment centre with ‘fridge, ice maker and an electric grill make this special. At the helm, twin adjustable bucket seats with flip up bolsters, make looking over the windshield easier. Nicely in the driver’s field of view are the analog engine instruments but you will largely be watching the Raymarine RL 120 and RayChart with GPS and 12” colour screen to see your course, speed and far more. There are numerous lit switches including controls for the tabs, bow thruster and my favorite; the sliding electric windshield.
The salon is special. In fact the joinery work is remarkable. The test boat had a full teak and holly sole instead of carpet. The Alegria features a full fiberglass inner liner. This is great for cleaning and keeping musty odors out, adds strength and even a measure of safety.
Throughout the cabin, curved varnished wood cabinetry lines the hull sides. Everything is curved. The lounge curves up the starboard side and has a polished cherry table. The cabinetry is all mahogany and African hardwood done in 12 coats of hand-polished, high-gloss Italian varnish that is a mix of polyester and polyurethane.
Past the curving forward bulkhead lies the master with private head and shower, huge overhead hatch and the island queen berth has a remote control vibrating mattress. Relax as you watch the flat screen TV or listen to one of the stereo systems. Both heads have vacuum flush MSDs. Dual zone heat and air conditioning throughout the cabin, adds the final measure of comfort.
