Yanmar Marine International is introducing a new range of small marine diesel engines for light commercial duties, comprising six models in the 6LF and 6LT series.

This extends Yanmar’s portfolio of common rail marine diesel engines to encompass an output range from 40hp to 640hp. The two series, consisting of the 3000rpm 6LF485, 6LF530 and 6LF550 engines and 2530rpm 6LT500, 6LT580 and 6LT640 engines, feature Yanmar’s next generation VC20 vessel control system. The global emission-certified diesel engines are said to offer leading fuel economy and to be compatible with a wide range of fuel types. Available as a complete package including engine, ZF transmission and VC20 vessel control system, the 6LF and 6LT are supplied with a full range of options.

Martijn Oggel, Global Sales Manager of Yanmar Marine International, said: “With the launch of our new engines, Yanmar’s renowned common rail range now reaches 640hp, representing a significant expansion of our line-up from the previous limit of 440hp. We are excited to bring the efficiency, performance and low emission benefits of the higher power 6LF and 6LT models, alongside the reassurance of Yanmar’s reputation for high quality, reliability and technological advancements, to more boat owners and commercial operators."
