Yanmar is highlighting the advanced technology and innovations behind its complete lineup of sailboat and powerboat engines at this year’s boot Düsseldorf show. The leading supplier of innovative engines and technology-driven marine propulsion systems is introducing its new 4LV250 sterndrive marine diesel engine to showcase for the first time alongside the popular Yanmar 6LY and 8LV series and the proven JH common rail (CR) series of sailboat engines.
Offering exceptional acceleration, fuel efficiency, quiet and virtually smoke and odour free operation, and low vibration for a smooth-running engine, the comprehensive and high performance Yanmar range suit a wide variety of vessels from sailboats, superyacht tenders, motorboats to fast sports craft and ski boats.
Yanmar recently also 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.
Proven 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.
