Petrol V Diesel

Hi all
My brother is in the market for a rib, he is a diesel man and the question he as put to me is.
With all the tec there is why dont rib makers put Volvo D4 or mybe a
BMW 535 D twin turbo, which on paper should give near 2 stroke pull from a diesel in there Ribs. To be honest i have thought about it my self.
Any Comments.
Roy

The new range of Yamaha Diesel are in fact re-badge BMW motors, and are available in both 4 and 6 cylinder variants. The smaller 2000cc 4 cylinder one looks ideal for a rib. Had a test drive of a BMW with this engine last week and was impressed.

And yes fully agree that when / if they bring out the twin turbo 3000cc version it would not be slow

Where have you see these? Yamaha were exhibiting their Toyota based 3.7 litre 4-cylinder and 4.2 litre 6-cylinder engines at Ribex in May. http://www.yamaha-motor.co.uk/produc...t_segments.jsp

I think you mean the Yanmars. It will be interesting to see how these BMW engines perform but unfortunatly they will still be mated to the Mercruiser leg .

It was either in motorboat monthly or in motorboat and yachting (ok so I can dream) will dig it out once I get home. But it was quite a big article on how Yamaha where using the BMW motors.

Did check the Yam web site and did not see any mention of the new range, just as you said the current Toyota based line up.

It's Yanmar and not Yamaha.

Hi Andre
Im new to the forum, but have made some experiences with the Merc in a
9,5m Tornado. Its a great engine, but we have had some difficulties.

You should check the engine mounts and reinforce them if you can,
our broke and we have put in a reinforcement.
Email me and i will send you some pics.
The holder for the heatexchanger broke, causing a damaged engine.
Will have to reinforce it to.

Otherwise the boat and engine goes well, doing 49 knots on top.

Here i norway we dont pay tax on the diesel so its quite economic.
Doing ribevents with RIB ROY from the forum, (7,5m Tornado with 250 Suzuki) we saw that it uses roughly the same amount of fuel on the same event.

Roy, we only fit Mercruiser diesel engines and a lot recently of the 320. Mostly 9 mtr ribs for Seasafari and to Scandinavia.
I have not heard of these problems but have asked the question and advised of your comments.
pls send me the pictures on info@parkerribs.com
