Yanmar has launched what it calls the world's smallest turbo diesel outboard following securing an exclusive distribution deal with manufacturer Neander Shark.

According to Yanmar, Neander Shark's Dtorque 111 is the world's smallest diesel engine with common-rail fuel injection able to deliver impressive performance with class-leading fuel economy.

“Our research has confirmed that this product is ideally placed for the light duty commercial market,” said Floris Lettinga, YMI global sales manager.

"We are confident that the combination of long range, low running costs, durability and low emissions delivered by this unique diesel outboard will appeal to operators across a wide range of applications."

He explained that the compact Dtorque 111 is designed to revolutionise the small workboat market with an expected lifespan of well over 10,000 hours doubling that of any comparable outboard gasoline engine.

The Dtorque 111 delivers 50 hp at the propeller with a torque output of 111 Nm at just 2,500 rpm. At full throttle and lading it typically burns under 12 litres, ensuring fewer refuelling stops and lower running costs.

The Dtorque 111 turbo diesel outboard is now in full production with customer deliveries planned for the last quarter of 2017.
