The Dtorque 111 on the METS TRADE

On the world’s largest maritime equipment show, the METS TRADE (Marine Equipment Trade Show) in Amsterdam, our distribution partner Yanmar Marine International presents the Neander Dtorque 111 at their booth  from 14 to 16 November.

From the first day on visitors were very interested in our unique product. The colleagues around Yanmar’s Global Sales Manager, Floris Lettinga, answered numerous and detailed questions. Even the president of Yanmar Marine International, Shiori Nagata, did not miss the opportunity to be photographed together with our managing director, Lutz W. Lester, in front of the Dtorque 111.

The highlight of the day was a visit to Zodiac Milpro, a commercial boat manufacturer, a supplier of RIBs and inflatable boats for the commercial sector. Zodiac Milpro is convinced by the performance and advantages of the Dtorque 111 after their own tests and trials. It was decided to design a future trade fair appearance together and thus give customers the opportunity to experience a perfectly coordinated system of boat and engine.

Innovative developments can not only be seen at the METS at Yanmar’s booth, but also at our exclusive assembling partner Steyr Motors: On Tuesday at eleven o’ clock the presentation ceremony of the SEC4 engine, newly developed by Steyr Motors, took place.

This is the world premiere of a turbocharged four-cylinder monobloc engine with a common-rail injection system specially developed for maritime applications.

In addition to the technical refinements, the engine is characterised by a redesign, which now also enables applications in which greater emphasis is placed on the visual experience. The presentation was skillfully moderated by Michael Aschaber, Managing Director of Steyr Motors GmbH.
