Diesel outboards - 300HP

Anyone seen one of these in the flesh?
300hp diesel outboard developed for military single fuel requirements.
150Hp too.

UK company it seems

Kinda strange innit governments trying to kill off diesel cars whilst encouraging their forces to switch to diesel power in their boats . One rule for us and another for them springs to mind

What is wrong with a diesel inboard, Much more reliable.
Then put a waterjet on the boat.

You've obviously never owned a high performance diesel inboard, they require way more maintenance and care and attention than an equivalent outboard

There’s a Bonita targa and a rib in the same marina as us, both with inboard diesels - owners making noises last season about ditching the inboards and retro-fitting outboards, I’m not sure if they were 100% serious or just venting their frustrations on inboard ownership!
Got to also say you see a few boats at the shows that were solely inboards but now offer outboard options..........

A mate has a 16m cat with Yanmars, he regularly has to shell Łthousands out for engine/gearbox repairs & its a private pleasure boat, not a commercial.
