Yanmar 3JH40 Wins Innovation Award
The Yanmar 3JH40 common-rail inboard diesel engine has received the 2018 Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show Innovation Award.
Introduced this year as the marine industry’s smallest CR inboard diesel engine, the 3JH40 was named the winner of the ‘Inboard Engines’ category when the NMMA and Boating Writers International (BWI) presented the awards during the annual Innovation Breakfast, held at Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin on Virginia Key.
The judges’ committee highlighted how the latest addition to Yanmar’s family of new-generation CR diesel engines is ‘bringing advanced technology and increased efficiency to smaller boats’. With an output of 40mhp, the compact and quiet 3JH40 enables smaller-leisure-boat owners and commercial vessel operators to benefit from the efficiency and performance advantages associated with the most recent electronically managed CR fuel injection technology.
