The current Yanmar 315 is based on the Land Cruiser diesel straight six block which Yamaha also use, looks like they will be using the V8 block for the new one?

Chewy is wrong

The current block is a straight six, this block is the Toyota block shared with Yamayeeha. Toyota were supposed to stop production, but the date seems to be slipping. Yanmar and Yamahayeeha use/d different head and pistons.

This block has been tweaked to 315HP from very humble origins and the move to V8 should allow more horsies without too much of a weight penalty.

And, as stated previously, I know almost nuttin about inboards.... :-)

The new motor was announced at Dusseldorf - V8 375 hp with a dedicated Yanmar leg, there may be a boat at the Miami show with a pair in if they can rig it in time.
