“We chose to carry the FPT commercial line of diesel marine engines with outputs from 57 to 1300 HP for several reasons,” said Dan Gribble, CEO Boatswain’s Locker.  “First, FPT’s quality and leading edge technology in common rail and clean burning engines, FPT’s horse power range that filled a gap in our offerings, and the fact that FPT engines are Tier II and III compliant.”

Founded in 1939 in Newport Beach, California, Boatswain’s Locker provides sales and service of marine engine products for both recreational and commercial vessels for over 69 years. Boatswain’s Locker is the distributor for FPT, Yanmar Marine Diesel Engines, Kohler Marine Generators, Hamilton Waterjet Propulsion Systems, Velvet Drive Transmissions, ZF Transmissions, as well as commercial marine engines from Mitsubishi, Scania for the Southwest U.S., Hawaii, and Mexico.
