The latest new gear, as featured in the June issues of Yachting Monthly and Motor Boat and Yachting

yanmar v8

Yanmar diesel V8 

Based on the latest 4.46-litre Toyota Land Cruiser V8 diesel engine, this will be available in 320 and 370hp forms. Compact, powerful and light: Yanmars new diesel V8 packs a serious punch in a small, lighter fit-out.

Barden CTEK M300


An eight-stage charger that recovers sulphated batteries, reconditions a
drained battery, tests battery condition, bulk charges, tests charge
retention, maintains charge and battery condition. The result of this should be
longer battery life.

Interphase Escort


An elegant and practical solution that will probably suit most people very well, this is one of two reasonably priced echo-sounders and fishfinders that tell you what will be under the boat before it happens.

EchoPilot FLS


Forward-looking sonar to compete with Interphase’s new Escort, with a forward range of 200 metres or eight times the actual
depth, and a
higher resolution colour screen.

Ocean Signal safety equipment

Ocean Signal is quick off the mark, bringing safety products to market less than a year after being set up.

Intellian I1


The worlds smallest, lightest and least expensive marine satellite TV system; the only extra equipment required is a satellite receiver (set-top box) and a TV. However, if you want the same channels as you get at home, it’s only suitable for boats based in England, Wales and southern Scotland
