Engine Specs for a Family of Marine Diesels

Hello Cruiser Forums!

I am a senior Naval Engineering student in need of your help.

For a project I am working on, I need to know the Weight, NCR, MCR, SFC, and fuel type for an inboard marine diesel. I need this information from 50 to 300 HP engines (increments of 50 if possible).

I was hoping that there is a commercially available family of engines (Same manufacturer... etc) in which I can find all of this data.

Hopefully a few of you can point me in the right direction for easily finding this information.


PS. I know that exists, but am a broke college student and do not want to pay membership fees.

Start your research by contacting web sites of manufacturers like Beta, Catapillar, Volvo,GM, Mann, etc. Most will have the info easily available.
All the best,

Re: Engine Specs for a Family of Marine Diesels


Yanmar at has a family (well not all are related ;-) of marine diesels from 18 to 900 hp. Don't know all of your acronyms but their data sheets do give hp, weight, hp curves- both max and prop and fuel consumption curves. Note that the fuel consumption curves match the prop hp curves, so you have to correlate the two to get bsfc.

Cllick on sailboat engines for 18-125 hp and powerboat engines for 150-900 hp. You want the technical data sheet on each engine.
