KRONLAND was launched in October 2010 and until September 2015 the engine clocked 1000 hours. The outboard engine is a Mercury 40 EFI BigFoot pushing the vessel to a speed of 11 kn/17 kmh. The fuel consumption at 6 kn is 2,8 L/h and average fuel consumption against the current is 3,5 L/h.

We had no trouble passing through 300 locks without a bow-thruster - occasionally assisted by the wind. We used the bow's 360° E-motor Minnkota Riptide only for anchoring via the GPS, hence anchoring without an anchor.

The houseboat interior allows for six persons to sleep in three double berths. The accommodation is all on one level, with no steps or headroom restrictions. The aft cabin is convertible to berth, desk and storage.

The interior floor area is 21 m², the outside area on bowdeck, aftdeck and cockpit is 16 m².
