Okay to explain - we went to Weslake for some engineering advice some time ago - to our amazement they have copied our engine so we are now in a legal dispute which is bloody annoying...
If you want to see our diesel engine in one of our jet tenders look at this You Tube clip, bearing in mind this was a prototype and there was no engine cover on the boat so we could keep an eye on what was going on...we are in the throws of "CE" marking the engine.

We have produced the engines for our own products but we are looking to increase production later this year so they will be available.
I am also keen to produce other diesel engines 4 cylinder (250hp) @ 120kgs and 6 cylinder (450hp) @ 180kgs...but that will be next year...
I am keen to install our V6 petrol (250hp) into a deep sea 21 (with our "Patented" jet unit) as we have produced the engine the same shape as the hull so we should be able to take the seats all the way back to the transom - so the engine is installed under the back seat...more deck space for a smaller boat?

Certainly is but a very interesting one too
If this engine performs as stated & is reliable then it's a potential game changer as no one has yet managed to build a small reliable powerful light diesel for a boat the nearest thing we have seen was the 1.7 merc which sold lots of units but suffered from reliability
It would be good to see a small uk manufacturer give the big boys a run for their money
Unfortunately it already looks like some politics going on with another company who have been involved which is sad as no one wins in those situations
Wish bwm every success good luck to them!
Would be good to be kept up to date with things as they progress

Unless I've been asleep for 50 years, I can smell a farmyard, I will apologise publicly if I can here that little boat ticking over and a shot of the engine, that sounds like it's revving far too high for a diesel

Sounds like a supercharger in the open air without an engine cover on to me. I can hear another (more dieselish) note under the whine-but my PC is hooked up to an entry level audiophile system. I doubt you'd hear the sound on normal PC speakers.

Try listening with a high quality pair of headphones and you'll hear it.
