Maritime Transportation: Laborde Supplies Yanmars to Power Boats for Export - 9/1/2011 -

By ON&T Staff Ocean News & Technology

Laborde now has the ability to supply builders on the U.S. Gulf Coast with the complete line of Yanmar 360-1,822-hp commercial engines for export. Laborde recently supplied six Yanmar 6CX-GTYE engines to Neuville Boat Works for crewboats headed for Trinidad.

Inland and Offshore Contractors Ltd., a diversified transportation company serving the petroleum industry, will take delivery of three 47-ft boats to carry crew and cargo to offshore installations. The fully mechanical Yanmars were chosen for their reliability and durability and because they can be easily serviced in the West Indies. The Yanmars are rated 400-hp at 2,700 rpm and will likely pick up a knot in Trinidad's heavy saltwater. For more information, visit
