Impressively Clean and Powerful Performance

Built on 30 years of history, the 4th generation 6LY-CR is a smooth and robust 6 cylinder in-line engine, producing impressively clean and powerful performance.

Incorporating an advanced Denso common rail fuel injection system, the 6LY-CR delivers excellent fuel economy and significantly less noise than previous generations, while the high torque output throughout its full operating range produces class leading acceleration and responsive performance.

Its narrow and lightweight profile enables installation in the tightest of engine rooms, making it the perfect solution for repowering, as well as newly built vessels.
