More Information

The SD60 is a YANMAR designed and developed sail drive that is custom engineered to match the 3JH5E, 3JH40, 4JH5E, 4JH45, 4JH4-TE, 4JH57, and 4JH80.  The SD60 comes with 2 bell housing sizes to accommodate a large engine range. The proprietary design connects seamlessly with YANMAR engine’s smaller dedicated marine built housings. This direct connection not only contributes to the compact size of the propulsion system but also reduces the need for adapters or couplings, resulting in a smaller rotational mass and therefore reduced vibration. This purpose-built and complimentary propulsion system maximizes the already efficient sail drive performance.

Additionally, the SD60 is designed for easy maintenance, with the ability to change the oil without hauling your boat out.
