SOLAS certification on outboards

Hi, hopefully somebody can help me. I am doing a research for a thesis on Ribs as rescue vessels. Most of the time those vessels need a SOLAS certification and also on the engine.

Yamaha used to have a 2-stroke engine which had the Solas certification, but they do not make them anymore.

Does anyone know which brand/type has a Solas certification on its outboard engines?

Researched this issue earlier this year. Has anyone certified a 4 stroke yet for use on a rescue craft ?

As far as I am aware, the whole issue of 4-stroke certification is being discussed between various parties including the classification societies and is yet to be ratified by IMO.

I'm at IMO in the next couple of weeks and will look into this.

Also the Mariner/Mercury 60hp Bigfoot and the 75hp are Solas engines as well.

Thank you all, but are there also any 90hp engines?

And are the results from the IMO public about those 4-strokes? If there will be news, of course :-)
