Yanmar sterndrive launch completes mid-range series

Yanmar Marine International has launched a line-up of 4LV sterndrive marine diesel engine models to complete its 4LV series of common rail engines.

“We are delighted to announce the availability of the full Yanmar 4LV Series range with ZT370 sterndrive,” said Floris Lettinga, Yanmar Marine International director of sales and marketing.

“The new models include a wide range of available engine options to support specific customer requirements, making this market-leading range of lively, responsive, and reliable engines available to an even larger number of boat users," Lettinga added.

Complementing the Yanmar 4LV inboard engine range introduced earlier this year, the corresponding 150Z/170Z/195Z/230Z/250Z mhp sterndrive models feature telectronically-managed CR fuel injection systems.

This next generation system uses Thermo Swing Wall Insulation technology to provide maximum thermal efficiency, leading to more complete combustion, adding efficiency in fuel consumption, torque and lowered emissions.

The 150 to 250 mhp power range marine diesel engines are all based on an identical engine block with the same dimensions and weight, making it easy for boat builders to install various options.

The new models are fitted with the Yanmar ZT370 sterndrive with hydraulic multi-disc clutch for exceptionally smooth and quiet gear engagement, plus standard EXO hard- anodization coating to provide exceptional protection against corrosion.

Ensuring optimal performance for a range of boats for recreational and light duty commercial applications, the ZT370 sterndrive is available in various gear ratios.

Other features include precision-forged gears with extra-long service life, the choice of electrical or mechanical shift models, and an integrated exhaust system.

All Yanmar 4LV engines with ZT370 sterndrive offer a selection of control systems, including full electronic or standard mechanical controls for commercial and recreational applications.

The models are also available with the Yanmar JC10 joystick system for easy manoeuvring. All models exceed both EPA Tier 3 and EU RCD Tier 2 emissions regulations/

In addition to the 4LV sterndrive series, Yanmar also offers its high-performance 8LV marine diesel with ZT370 sterndrive in 320, 350, and 370 mhp.
