please tell me if anybody have any clue about their SOLAS certification
It's not the kind of thing they make a big deal out of as you're average punter doesn't even know about SOLAS requirements (let alone care about them). You would have to ask the dealer/manufacturer specifically about SOLAS certification of engines.
Note also that in the above links that have been posted by members, the engines have been "modified" to be SOLAS compliant by mounting/fitting extra kit to the engines. The manufacturers don't tend to build these engines with SOLAS compliance in mind as it's an extra cost that 99% of their potential target market don't give a monkeys about. This is why you will struggle to find literature/sales information about SOLAS compliance of engines on manufacturer's websites.
