Interesting outboard. I wonder if they'll build em bigger.

"The compact Dtorque 111 is designed to revolutionize the small workboat market where its expected lifespan of well over 10,000 hours at least doubles that of any comparable outboard gasoline engine. The Dtorque 111 offers a remarkably smooth and quiet diesel engine, delivering 50 hp at the propeller with a stunning torque output of 111 Nm at just 2,500 rpm. This is considerably better than the latest 70 hp 4-stroke gasoline models and more than enough to quickly accelerate most small craft onto the plane with plenty of low-down lugging power for heavy displacement duty."

Marine motors spend a large portion of their running time at idle. It will be interesting to see how they deal with this. Diesels get pretty unhappy when they aren't run hard under load.

I wonder how many will forget it's a diesel and put gas in it.

When Yanmar first introduced diesel outboards, the Venezuelan drug smugglers built lots of near-submarines, with just a glass cabin sticking above the water, and a Yanmar sticking up on the back. The Coasties towed one into St. Croix, and it sat in a marina about a year while the Feds studied it and processed the case. That one was about 30 feet long. Interesting. It's just under 500 miles from Ven. to Puerto Rico. Good fuel mileage!
I don't want anything to do with a turbocharged diesel outboard.
