The YANMAR 8LV is a compact power plant with an extremely efficient and versatile design. The V8 common-rail configuration allows for a balanced and quiet running engine with twin turbochargers for faster throttle response.
With a wide speed range from 550 rpm idle to 3800 rpm top speed, the 8LV can be applied to suit many different application needs, from low speed, easy manoeuvring to high speed, responsive cruising. And with a large 180 amp alternator as standard, it can efficiently power additional functions and do so easily with direct connectivity to all NMEA devices on this electrically controlled engine.
The best-in-class power-to-weight ratio and compact size make this engine ideal for either new builds or retrofits.
