Press release -

  • Improved Performance: Modern engines offer superior power, acceleration, and manoeuvrability, enhancing the overall boating experience.
  • Increased Fuel Efficiency: Repowering with newer, energy-efficient engines can significantly reduce fuel consumption, saving boaters money in the long run.
  • Environmental Responsibility: Newer engines adhere to stringent emission standards, contributing to cleaner air and a healthier marine environment.

YANMAR remains at the forefront of marine engine technology, constantly innovating to deliver reliable and efficient solutions. With their global reputation for manufacturing high-quality, durable marine engines, YANMAR is also committed to environmental sustainability, producing engines that meet or exceed the most stringent emission standards and those approved for use with more eco-friendly alternative fuels such as HVO.
