The supercharger is for low end they should uncouple at a set rpm we had some on the military boats but the drives were the weak point.

Race and leisure versions - there will also be a version with a removable roof which will stow in the engine ampartment.

Cat - Those engines are taking a very long time to bring to market! Is there a predicted launch date yet?

By the way they are big heavy engines for not very much HP - 570kg / 230hp against 260hp / 319kg for the latest Yanmars that we're fitting ..................
