I was reading an article about a diesel outboard manufacturer in the April 1980 Small Boat Journal, The motor was manufactured in Italy by Carniti-Ruggerini. I was wondering if anyone knew of any other manufacturers or if any of the larger manufacturers had ever produced any for the public?

Yanmar makes a 27 and 36 HP commercial marine diesel outboard. Don

Don -
They are interesting, not that I am considering one but the are less heavy than I expected, have you ever seen one run? I would imagine the 36 costs about $5000 - $6000.

No prices but all the specs are at "www.yanmar.com" & "www.landseapower.com"
I am sure the price is many$$$$$$.
Look good though. Yanmar has a great reputation in our area for inboard power but none of the outboards around.

I don't know a thing about sailboats, but living on the ICW I've watched thousands of them going by. I have seen several with Yanmar diesel outboards attached at the stern. The last was a huge catamaran (sp?)motoring along with a Yanmar 36 powering it. Sounded pretty much like a two-stroke gas engine and no smoke was noticeable. The different brand name on the cowling really caught my eye though!
