Twin 370 HP Cummins (original) VT8 370M engines. They start easily and purr like kittens. They are dry stack exhaust and very quiet running. Hour meters show 6000+ hours. We're confident that these engines have had an overhaul at sometime in their past.

Owner has several "spare" engines in storage.

"Sirius" is the last of the Trumpy "Houseboats" built with a separate pilothouse forward, a main saloon on deck and a larger soft enclosed aft deck with wing doors. Original Trumpy teak furniture to include a table, 4 lounge chairs and the aft settee. Aft deck wet bar with an ice maker and a refrigerator. Typically, the galley is on deck level but on "Sirius" there is a small sleeping cabin and head just aft of the pilothouse. The galley is below forward along with crew quarters for two and a walk in engineroom with laundry.  Below and aft from the saloon is a full beam master stateroom with port and starboard twin berths and a large ensuite head with a tiled stall shower. Forward of the master is a guest stateroom to starboard with twin berths and a guest head to port with a stall shower.

Foredeck has a cushioned settee in front of the pilothouse and two deck boxes. Boat deck accessed from a ladder on the stbd side deck has 2 dinghy davits and the 12' 10" AB Inflatables Center Console RIB 2001 Tender with a 40 HP Tohatsu Outboard.
