Tur­bocharged Brute

Power & Motor Yacht - - WATER FRONT - Capt. Bill Pike

The realm of small out­boards has broad­ened re­cently, thanks to the in­tro­duc­tion of what’s billed as the small­est tur­bocharged, com­mon-rail-diesel out­board on the mar­ket to­day— the Ne­an­der Dtorque Turbo Diesel. Be­sides its diminu­tive size, what pri­mar­ily sets this 50 horse­power BOSCH-fuel-in­jected beauty apart is a set of counter-ro­tat­ing crankshafts which, by gen­er­at­ing op­pos­ing forces within, essen­tially can­cel each other out, thereby sig­nif­i­cantly re­duc­ing the vi­bra­tion and noise that might oth­er­wise be as­so­ci­ated with a small en­gine that pro­duces rad­i­cal amounts of torque. —
