XS Diesel Ribs: UK Made Leisure and Commercial Craft
Diesel inboard motors can be fitted to any craft of 7 m or larger. These motors are heavy and care has to be given to match hull volume and overall buoyancy to the weight of the motor.
We can offer conventional stern drive or jet propulsion. The Diesel option will add a LOT to the initial cost of the craft and you have to be using the craft in the order of 300 - 400 hours PER YEAR to make this a FINANCIAL benefit over the life of the craft.
There are of course many applications where Diesel is the only fuel source and thus Inboard craft are the answer. There are NO viable diesel outboards.
