Yes, quite some machinery fit (inc DP) in an old lady. Guess the Schottel Pump Jet main thruster itself might be reasonably quiet (Ahd), and if electric drive, main DGs most certainly on resilient mounts. If mechanical drive via GB to Schottel, Main Engs maybe res mounts but maybe not, so significant more noise of course if that’s the case.
Whatever – a handsome vessel for sure and doubtless v pleasing manoeuvrability.
