EdgeWater debuts first diesel model

EdgeWater Power Boats developed its first diesel model - the 228CCD, powered by a fuel-efficient 180-hp Yanmar 4BY2 from Mastry Engine Center, the boatbuilder announced.

“While we've traditionally featured outboard power, the 228CCD evolved from a custom gas sterndrive project for a British Columbia fishing lodge,” EdgeWater president Peter Truslow said in a statement. “It made us think about alternative power choices and opportunities for superior fuel efficiency. We trust Mastry and have a great comfort level with them. Many of our dealers worldwide say Yanmar is the preferred diesel engine.”

The EdgeWater 228CCD combines a fishing-friendly layout with rough-water handling. Seating includes a leaning post with storage below and an aft-facing seat above the engine. An unobstructed transom and full-width swim platform appeal to anglers and divers.

“There is a niche of people who want EdgeWater styling and are already fans of the dependability, durability and fuel efficiency of diesels,” Truslow said. “But we've also found a new market of larger boat owners who, due to gas prices, want something simpler to run around in. We've built many custom boats and the 228CCD is an entryway to explore concepts for other fuel-efficient models.”
