No Limit Ships
BS 10.40

The Blauwe Stad 10.40 is a larger version of the No Limit BS 8.80. The ship offers even more space and comfort than the smaller model and, in addition to a fixed bed in the forepeak, also has the option of creating two extra berths. The ship also has a wet room with a shower and toilet.  

Just like its smaller sister, the BS 10.40 is a luxurious touring tug with manageable dimensions, in which authentic lines are combined with modern comfort.

The spacious self-draining cockpit offers generous and comfortable seating for several guests. The ship is suitable for longer journeys as a result of the even more spacious interior than the BS 8.80 and headroom in the cabin.

A Lombardini LDW1404M 40 HP four-cylinder diesel engine is fitted in the easily accessible engine compartment under the cockpit as standard. This is a compact diesel engine with high levels of efficiency and low fuel consumption.

Easy access for service and maintenance work has been taken into account in all respects during installation. The engine drives a water-lubricated stainless steel propeller shaft with a bronze 3-blade propeller via a robust flexible coupling.

Extra attention has also been devoted to noise control. The noise level is so low that you wouldn’t expect the ship to be running with a diesel engine. This certainly gives an extra dimension to sailing with a Blauwe Stad!


No Limit Ships have a critical view where preserving a ship is concerned. We use a top quality preservation system with two components.

Our ships are built from blasted steel. An epoxy coating is applied to the inside and outside of the entire ship, after which it’s given a completely smooth and round finish with epoxy filler which is strong and permanently elastic.

This is sealed with an epoxy coating. Everything is given a smooth finish with a wear-resistant and UV-resistant lacquer.

The internal, sensitive areas, like the bilge and cockpit benches are given an extra hard, smooth, durable and easy-to-clean epoxy coating.

The decks are provided with an anti-slip coating. This coating is extra wear-resistant and prevents slipping on the walking surfaces.

The cockpit seats and cockpit floor are fitted with Flexiteek as standard. This is a durable plastic product which looks like real teak. Flexiteek is easy to keep clean, wear-resistant and anti-slip.

The interior is treated with a top quality two-component lacquer and finished off with a one-component lacquer.


No Limit Ships keeps a close eye on new technical innovations and therefore constantly manages to continue to innovate and renew its products.

A great deal of attention has been devoted to technology. Here the shipyard’s sober mentality is evident once again; there are never any compromises where quality is concerned, it simply has to be good! We only use the very best installation components.

This is evident in absolutely everything. For example, an isolation transformer is installed as standard in a 240-volt installation. This guarantees a safe system and protection against electrolysis. The battery for the on-board network and the starter battery are arranged and charged separately.

All tanks are made from stainless steel and therefore require no maintenance.
