Offering minimal fuel consumption and exceptionally low noise and emission levels, our strengthened range will enable more owners and operators to experience the significant benefits associated with common rail technology. Our JH range from 40 to 110 mhp, with the addition of the award-winning 3JH40, has attracted an extensive variety of new customers clear indication that this family of engines has become the new global standard in sailboat propulsion."

Yanmar recently launched its next-generation five-engine 4LV sterndrive marine diesel engine models fitted with the Yanmar ZT370 to complete its 4LV series. The 150 to 250 mhp range with Yanmar ZT370 sterndrive, adds to the established 3500 rpm 150, 170, & 195 mhp units and highest-power 3800 rpm 230 and 250 mhp models.

Proved for cruising applications and ideal for installation in new craft with limited engine-room space, the fourth-generation 6LY series has been built with all the best attributes of its predecessors, combined with the latest technical know-how to improve efficiency and reduce emissions. Meanwhile, the high-end performance 8LV series is ideal for fast sports craft, ski boats and luxury cruisers, combining astonishing speed and acceleration with low noise levels and fuel economy. With a maximum engine speed of 3,800 rpm, well ahead of other engines in this sector, it also provides excellent performance at low speeds, idling at 550 rpm.
