The global emission-certified diesel engines also offer a leading fuel economy and are compatible with a wide range of fuel types.

Available as a complete YANMAR 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 640 mhp, representing a significant expansion of our line-up from the previous limit of 440 mhp. 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.  

“Ideal for semi-planing and planing hulls with inboard propulsion systems, the engines offer compact, light-weight and high-performance powerboat solutions. They are also the first new YANMAR range to incorporate our new VC20 vessel control system. Demonstrating our commitment to leading by technology, this next-generation system will feature across our range of common rail engines, playing an essential role in improving the entire on-board experience.”
