No Limit Ships
No Limit 16.40

The No Limit 1640 originated from the No Limit 1640 PRO, which was originally designed for the business market.

The No Limit 1640 has the same dimensions as a 1640 PRO, but offers more interior space and a larger cockpit. This gives you more options for organising the space. 

Like the smaller 1550, the 1640 is also equipped with every possible comfort and is therefore very suitable for a longer stay on board.

The tube, the shape of the hull and the high top speed have made the ship extremely seaworthy and will also result in a comfortable and safe feeling during less pleasant weather conditions.

There are hardly any conditions in which a No Limit can’t sail. The No Limit is not only suitable for big bodies of water. The No Limit is also extremely suitable for sailing on inland waters due to the vessel’s overall height and shallow draft.

Two six-cylinder Volvo Penta engines, each with a power of 650 hp, are fitted in the engine compartment, which is accessible from the outside, as standard.

These engines are reliable and relatively economical due to the electronically controlled fuel injection.

The use of two engines not only facilitates manoeuvring, but also serves as extra security for longer trips.

The No Limit’s consumption levels are roughly equivalent to a single-engine cruiser of approximately the same dimensions when sailing at cruising speed. This is due to the very low load of the relatively heavy engines at average cruising speeds.

The engines drive two bronze 5-blade ship propellers via stainless steel propeller shafts. The propellers run in half lengthening pieces, so they are well protected. The water-lubricated propeller shafts are durable and maintenance-free.

There are two mounted, hydraulically operated rudders behind the propellers.The engines are equipped with a dual fuel system, which can be switched in the event of an emergency. The two engines make manoeuvring a No Limit child's play. The ship is also easy to sail alone, partly as a result of this.


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. The ship is completely blasted again before the first primer treatment, in order to obtain the perfect adhesion, especially on the aluminium. This is the best basis for realising a top quality preservation system.

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.

The preservation process is completed with an epoxy coating, after which 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 a wear-resistant anti-slip coating to prevent slipping on the walking surfaces.


The No Limit is equipped with the latest innovations and developments. It comes with a complete navigation package as standard. The No Limit can also be controlled from the flybridge behind the wheelhouse and can be fitted in line with the customer’s wishes.

The ship is equipped with an automatic whisper-quiet generator as standard. There’s an automatic fire extinguishing system in the engine compartment. We use the user-friendly "EmpirBus" system. A highly reliable operating system which can be programmed in line with your exact requirements.

A very complete ship like a No Limit’s conventional technology would usually be equipped with large switch panels for operating everything on the ship. This is complicated and difficult for many people.

This is a thing of the past with No Limit Ships and the entire ship is easy to operate for anyone thanks to the operating system used. For example, the No Limit has a number of standard push buttons, such as an “on board” mode, “navigation” mode and “off board” mode. Everything you need is automatically operated with the mere press of a button.

“Why do things the hard way” is an appropriate expression here.
