Purely out of interest, i was wondering if anyone has any opinions or experience with the new range of Cummins Mercruiser diesel engines -
Theres been a lot of talk of late regarding Yanmars, the Merc 1.7, Volvo D3-D6's etc etc and no talk of the Cummins engines.
Is there any particular reason for this? Are they not suitable for RIBs for any reason? Are they unreliable or maybe just accidently been overlooked?
I would assume now though that the Mercruiser partnership will have basically turned the engines into standard Mercruisers rather than improving Cummins?
I believe that Cummins do have a good commercial reputation though so they may be worth considering if anybody out there is ordering a new diesel RIB!!
