Yanmar debuts commercial diesel engines

Yanmar America Corp. introduced a range of propulsion and auxiliary power high-speed commercial workboat diesel engines.

Offered in models from 350 to 1,800 hp, the engines create new commercial business opportunities throughout North and South America, the Adairsville, Ga.-based company said. Yanmar already participates in the commercial marine diesel engine sector in Japan and other Asian markets.

Compliant with the latest IMO Tier II emissions regulations, the engines have type approval by the six major classification societies. Offering easy installation and simple maintenance, the high-speed Yanmar diesels are suitable for commercial applications that include offshore support vessels, fishing craft, ferries, tugs and other workboats.

“We have already sold a number of these high-speed commercial engines to operators in Panama for workboats, and in Venezuela and Trinidad for use in the oil fields,” Yanmar marine division manager Tom Watson said in a statement. “We are again proving that Yanmar is the engine of choice when reliability, durability and fuel economy count.”
