Yanmar Rolls Out New Marine Power Offerings

Yanmar has already introduced several new products for the marine market in 2018, including a new common rail inboard marine diesel engine touted as the world's smallest, higher horsepower offerings in its mid range series, and expanded joystick controls.

YANMAR Launches 3JH40
Yanmar Marine International has launched the latest addition to its family of new generation common rail (CR) diesel engines, the compact Yanmar 3JH40 inboard engine, at boot Düsseldorf.
The three-cylinder 3JH40 has been developed as the marine industry's smallest CR inboard diesel engine, Yanmar said. With an output of 40 mhp, it will enable a new category of smaller leisure boat owners and commercial vessel operators to benefit for the first time from the efficiency and performance advantages associated with the most recent electronically-managed CR fuel-injection technology.
Offering minimal fuel consumption plus low noise and emission levels, the new Yanmar 3JH40 propulsion engine surpasses EPA Tier 3 and EU RCD Tier 2 emission regulations for virtually smoke and odor-free operation.
According to Yanmar, the four-stroke, water-cooled 3JH40 is suited for newbuilds and repowering applications, specifically monohull sailing yachts and catamarans up to 45ft, small motor boats or sloops, and light duty commercial craft.
Weighing 192 kg and with 1.642 L displacement, the engine can be operated by either standard mechanical cable controls or the Yanmar VC10 electronic control system.
YANMAR Introduces 4LV Series High Power Models
Following the 2017 introduction of the 150, 170 and 195 mhp units in its new 4LV Series of CR engines, Yanmar is for the first time introducing the addition of the two highest power engines, the 230 and 250 mhp versions, to complete the five-engine range.
The 3,800 rpm 230 and 250 mhp models feature an increase in output and different turbo models from the first three 3,500rpm units in Yanmar's mid-section range of leading diesels.
Harnessing fuel injection technology, the new 4LV higher power engines have been designed for power recreational boating and small commercial craft applications.
The engines incorporate the latest technology to enable low vibration and noise levels for a smooth and quiet running engine. These include a counterbalance shaft and refined component design.
Featuring a class-leading power-to-weight ratio, the 4LV delivers a powerful low-end torque performance, Yanmar said. This results in a stunning acceleration and set these engines apart from others in their power range.
JC20 Joystick Now Available
Yanmar's common rail engine range is complemented by a choice of Yanmar controls, including the new JC20 joystick system for innovative maneuvering solutions.
Previewed in 2017, the easy-to-use JC20 is available from February 2018. It enables precise joystick maneuvering for twin straight shaft drive engine installations in combination with a bow thruster.
The new Yanmar control allows owners of motorboats, powerboats, and catamarans to dock accurately and smoothly by pressing the joystick in the desired direction. The JC20 automatically directs the speeds of the two engines and uses the thruster to precisely maneuver the boat.
The introduction of the JC20 completes Yanmar's joystick control line up, already featuring the 4JH80 SPP (Steerable Propulsion Pod) joystick maneuvering system for large sailing yachts and the JC10 Joystick for twin sterndrive, all of which integrate directly with Yanmar engines.
