    Default What is a TSDMY?

    I cannot find out what TSDMY means.
    My boat is for sale - ask me if interested.

    Twin Screw Displacement Motor Yacht.
    Not exactly a widespread wording (and arguably not very accurate), but I've seen it used occasionally...

    PS: LOL, see? MM heard a slightly different version...

    Yup but MUCH more common is TSDY which has been around for decades. If it is twin screw the M is superfluous.

    I don't think you need to - I suspect your version is the earlier usage. TSSYs also exist. (And, I humbly submit, most of them are displacement types too).

    No need for the embarrassment emoticon, MM.
    My comment was because I wasn't sure that my version was more correct than yours - assuming that there is such thing a "correct" version...
    ...as the comment from AA proves!

    Thanks MM (the other one!). I was actually quite surprised to read the question as it's not an acronym I've seen used for a long time. I'm more than happy to say there is more than one meaning if it hides my ignorance.
