YANMAR DIESEL ENGINE

New Engines and Joystick from Yanmar

Yanmar presents boaters and industry professionals new engines and advanced technical features at BOOT Düsseldorf in Germany, one of the world’s largest watersports exhibition, from January 18-26, 2014. Yanmar's technical frontrunner is the completely new developed common rail JH-CR four-cylinder diesel engine that comes in production in the summer of 2014. The new compact midrange is available in 45,57,80 en 110hp, fitting perfectly with a range of boats: larger sailing yachts, motor cruisers, fast RIBs and tender boats. Direct fuel injection results in less diesel consumption. Noise reduction is another focus where Yanmar engineers have been successful. Although the engine is very compact, it is easy accessible for service. Traditional push/pull operation is offered on each engine as a standard. Electronic engine control extendable with multifunctional displays is available as an option. The standard engine provides ample electric power of 125A/12V. A secondary alternator, 12V or 24V is optional. The engine is compliant with EPA Tier 3 and EU RCD 2 (2016) emission regulations. Sailors love the sound of the wind. To get them a quiet and powerful ride when switching on the engine, Yanmar has specially designed a diesel engine of 160 hp. Result? Cruising with 1,800-2,000 rpm at amazing low noise levels! Furthermore the new 6BY3-160complies with the latest stringent global emission regulations, like EPA Tier 3
