Halmatic pacific engines

Hi everybody,

Does anybody know why Halmatic changed engines from Marmaid to Yanmar? Commercial, technical or both reasons? How would you evaluate Marmaid engine? Any personal experience perhaps?

Only had experience on Mermaid in refirbing mine.They are easy to work on they may have had to change due to regulations on new boats with deisel emissions as the mermaids are quite smokey.The other engines are obvious much more modern and probably lighter and bigger hp.

Hi Peter,

Thanks yours. Emission control might be good reason for a change. Yes, that could be it.

Don't know if this is of any help, but we've got a Iveco diesel in ours.

The new Yanmars are almost half the weight of the same power Mermaid, and more refined (quieter) and fuel efficient.

We did have a six cylinder in her before this, went down to a four with the same hp with more torque.

She is a good little runner and happy with carving/skipping/slapping her way through varying sea states.

More chop please guvna!
