well thats the same trade off with cars ... the diesels were always more expensive, so if you dont do the miles, it doesent always work out cheaper. Cant see why you couldnt run it on red though .. I'm not one for chancing my arm as all my diesel vehicles are legit .... but who is gonna check an occasional pleasure user ? ... not my field so others may be better placed to advise, but ... are the authorities going to be that concerned about a couple of litres of inappropriate diesel use ? They are after the big guys running fleets usually, or gin palaces I'd have thought. It would be too expensive to police and monitor

Your totally within the law to run a boat on red diesel but your supposed to pay the duty on it at point of purchase .
If the boat is fitted with heating then you can declare a 60/40 split for the heating use ie 40% of your fill up can be for heating & duty free
If you go into any marina in the land for diesel you will be buying red diesel
Obviously if you buy red diesel for your tractor then put it in your boat then your being naughty,however how does Mr revenue man know where the diesel in your tank came from? Almost impossible to say and I'd guess they don't realy care as they probably have much easier targets in cars & trucks with red in there tanks
I've never herd of any boat owner large or small being charged with using none duty paid diesel it's just too difficult to police

Sneaky pics optimax Diesel engine.

I expect they will be expensive (POA) & unless you have exemption from EU RCD emissions then not available at all.

You can download the Barrus special products brochure here:

http://www.navalsystems-tech.com/fil...20Brochure.pdf

It has all the contact details if anyone is seriously interested.

[QUOTE=JamesF;651426

Diesel's a bit safer to handle, though. Does that affect how easy it is to get a boat coded?[/QUOTE]

Petrol outboards allowed for coding. Petrol inboards / stern drives not allowed

So, looks like 180hp from the "equivalent 200hp petrol engine".

200hp/225hp optimax is 238kg.

Sounds pretty good. Unless torque is poor (N/A diesel) or is very expensive.

BUT bear in mind that a Volvo Penta D3-190 with sterndrive is about 28k.

Food for thought.
