Transition of Power

Performance and efficiency are the driving forces behind the next generation of marine engines.


INBOARDS

Yanmar
With an output of 530 horsepower at 2,900 rpm, the 6CX530 diesel inboard from Yanmar is a powerful package for the sport-fishing market. Rated at 7.4 liters, this in-line, six-cylinder engine is Tier 2 certified for EPA emission standards. It's also ready for eventual Tier 3 requirements. A common rail fuel-injection system with turbocharging is standard. So is the Yanmar-built marine gear. Cooling is done with a centrifugal freshwater pump and rubber impeller seawater pump. With its compact size and high power-to-weight ratio, Yanmar's latest offering is typical of the next generation of high-performance diesel engines.
