YANMAR Marine International launched the latest addition to its family of new generation common rail (CR) diesel engines, the compact 3 cylinder Yanmar 3JH40 inboard, at Boot Düsseldorf.

With an output of 40mhp, it will enable smaller leisure boat owners to benefit from the performance advantages associated with the most recent electronically managed CR fuel injection technology.

The 4 stroke, water cooled 3JH40 is a solution for new builds and repowering applications, specifically monohull sailing yachts and catamarans up to 45ft, small motor boats or sloops, and light duty commercial craft, suggests Yanmar.
