JCB on display at Bournemouth

Mermaid Marine will show a selection from its large range of engines at Skipper Expo Bournemouth including the Mermaid J444NA engine that provides great performance and clean emissions.

The Mermaid J444 (JCB) range has models from 55kW / 74hp to 120kW / 160hp suitable for a large variety of applications, with the smaller engines particularly suitable for the grant funded repower market.

“The JCB Dieselmax engine range has been designed to give operators great performance and we’re able to offer engines for an even wider choice of uses,” said Julian Osborne, Mermaid Marine sales executive. “The engines incorporate the latest technological advances to provide high torque at low engine speeds with favourable fuel consumption with the design taking future emission requirements into account.”

Emissions are addressed at source without particle filter or after-treatment of the exhaust gases saving on weight and size.

Mermaid Marine is the sole UK JCB mariniser and distributes its engines through its network of suppliers across the UK and around the world. All the parts are sourced from the UK making the engines even more popular at the moment with the low pound.

Also on show at Bournemouth will be a MKDI, part of the Mermaid Kohler range which expands Mermaid Marine’s offering to smaller inboard engines suitable for commercial applications from 31kW.

The range is also marinised by Mermaid Marine and as with the JCB range meets the next stage of emissions targets without the need for a diesel particulate filter meaning the engine can be installed into a smaller, more compact space.

The engines feature cylinder block with bed plate architecture, a 4-valve cylinder head, gear driven valve train and optimised direct injection (DI) fuel system with class leading fuel consumption.

The engines utilise direct injection technology and are naturally aspirated with mechanical governing.

There are currently two Mermaid MKDI engines, the KDI-40M three cylinder, 42hp / 31kW and the KDI-50M four cylinder 49hp / 36kW with further developments planned in terms of options and power ratings.

The Bournemouth Skipper Expo takes place from October 28 – 29 from 10am to 4pm.
