Yanmar Marine International held the ‘Dtorque 111 kick-off meeting’ in early November in Almere, Netherlands to confirm the distribution network for Neander Shark’s new 50hp diesel outboard.

The first 6 distributors are:

◾E.P. Barrus Ltd.  (United Kingdom)

◾YANMAR Iberica (Spain and Portugal)

◾Friedrich Marx GmbH & Co. KG (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, and Hungary)

◾Navella (Croatia)

◾YANMAR EUROPE B.V. (Netherlands)

◾YANMAR NORGE AS (Norway)

During the meeting all technical details and also the exceptional advantages of the Dtorque were clearly highlighted. Afterwards the participants were invited to test drives, giving everybody the opportunity to experience the Dtorque live on the water. They were impressed and most enthusiastic about the thrust produced with such low vibrations.

The next day Yanmar enlarged on the marketing strategy and explained the already available accessories for the tiller and the remote control as well as the delivery of the first pre-series motors: All motors will be cared for by a local Yanmar partner to ensure a direct feedback.

The Neander Shark dtorque is a 804cc inline twin cylinder turbodiesel motor with a quoted dry weight of 175kgs. It produces 111nm of torque which its manufacturer claims puts it up to the level of 70hp gasoline engines.
