Power Profile

Yanmar Australia
Platinum is a Mussel farm work vessel that was repowered after the failure of the V12 MAN. The original transmission was reused and the hydraulics remounted on the front using a live drive bell housing. New stainless exhaust and existing K4 controls. The vessel performs extremely well and is saving fuel by the ton. At the time I write this it has had its 1000hr service and has a perfect performance record to date. NOTE from customer. Thank you for a great engine which is giving us great service.
