YANMAR’s UK distributor, Barrus, has strengthened its UK sales and service network with the appointment of three dedicated dealers for the Dtorque 111 Turbo Diesel outboard.
The new dealers, named as Caley Marina (Inverness), Fettes and Rankine (Aberdeen) and South Shore Marine (Northern Ireland), are ideally positioned in the market to focus on meeting increasing demand for the Neander-engineered outboard, distributed worldwide by YANMAR.
Mike Forman, Sales Manager, Marine Diesel, Barrus, says: “We are pleased to announce Caley Marina, Fettes and Rankine, and South Shore Marine as our new high-level dealers for YANMAR’s Dtorque outboard. They have been identified as best placed to effectively penetrate our target markets, particularly in the thriving aquaculture and fishing sectors in specific regions in Scotland and Ireland. These businesses are a perfect fit for our sales strategy going forward for Dtorque and we look forward to introducing the benefits of this unique outboard to more industry professionals.”
The first serial production diesel outboard with dual crankshaft, and the smallest diesel outboard with common rail fuel injection, YANMAR’s Dtorque Turbo Diesel is said to be well suited for workboats, rescue and safety boats, fishing boats, oil and gas and offshore vessels, government and port authority boats, passenger boats, and superyacht tenders. The 50 hp Dtorque offers a torque output peaking at 111 Nm at 2,500 rpm, fuel economy, reliability, and low noise and vibration.
Included in Barrus’s product portfolio since 2017, the YANMAR Dtorque has an expected life span of more than 10,000 hours, requiring minimal maintenance with less stress on the engine and its suspension. The 804cc outboard features torque performance surpassing the leading 70 hp fuel-injected, four-stroke gasoline outboards and fuel consumption of a maximum of 12 litres per hour (wide open throttle).
