As part of a 140,000 square-foot engineering and manufacturing facility at its headquarters in Little Mountain, S.C., Pleasurecraft Engine Group has completed construction of a new dynamometer laboratory.

The facility includes a workshop and test cells that house two SuperFlow dynamometers, an eddy-current break and a water-break dynamometer. The eddy-current model is better suited for calibration, mapping and emission work. The water-break version will be used for coolant and durability tests.

The dynos let Pleasurecraft engineers maximize each engine’s performance by precisely tuning custom calibrations and creating automated test profiles that closely simulate on-water conditions. The new lab will provide increased validation of new components and give engineers the ability to run future products up to 1,200 hp.

“We are excited to unveil this new dynamometer facilty,” said Mark McKinney, president of Pleasurecraft, in a statement. “For decades we have brough numerous innovations to the watersports industry. This new facility shows our commitment to continued innovation, validation and engineering excellence. We know that this new dynamometer facility will help pave the way for our engineers to develop future innovations in marine engine technology.”
