Oyster partners with Yanmar on 495 range

Yanmar has announced its involvement in Oyster’s newest addition, the Oyster 495.

Oyster’s selected the Yanmar 4JH110 Common Rail, 4-cylinder, direct injection marine diesel inboard engine as a standard fit, as it’s said to surpasses global standards for virtually odour and smoke-free operation, as well as keeping fuel consumption to a minimum.

The engine is coupled to the new Yanmar SD15 saildrive solution. This is said to provide the boat owner with the experience of low vibration and noise on-board, low drag, improved propulsion efficiency and fuel consumption with excellent hydrodynamic efficiency.

Oyster is also utilising Yanmar’s VC20 Vessel Control System. This provides dedicated control modes for all Yanmar control system functions.

“We are delighted to partner with Yanmar on the Oyster 495 – their 4JH110 engine meets the same high standards we hold ourselves to and will provide owners with excellent performance and fuel efficiency,” comments Richard Hadida, CEO and owner of Oyster Yachts.

Oyster worked with Barrus’s Marine Diesel Division (Yanmar Marine’s UK distributor) to select its requirements.

Mike Forman, sales manager of the Marine Diesel Division at Barrus says: “There is great synergy between Yanmar and Oyster Yachts, and we look forward to working with them on future projects. As a leading supplier of innovative engines and technology-driven marine propulsion systems, Yanmar is constantly developing to meet changing trends and the requirement for increased functionality offering an enhanced experience for boaters.”
