Car engine marinisation
MT Marine Motors is an affordable car engine marinising business also for the average person, resulting in high performance, reliable marinised marine engines. We recognise the fact that there is a growing demand for recreational boating outside the luxury sector, and affordable, economical, reliable diesel marine power is essential.
Based on our own experience of many years as users, we have experimented and developed the marinised car engine into a marine power source with meticulous modifications, and we are currently using these engines in our own boats. The marinised marine engines have a power output of 150-300hp, making them particularly suitable for propelling larger gliders, or as a one-off replacement for the 4.3, 5.7, 5.8 and 8.2 gasoline engines. They are more comfortable in terms of running performance, while at the same time providing fractional fuel consumption.
The marinised car engine is based on Audi/VW platforms, from the models that have been the most successful blocks for decades with their sophistication and reliability, as well as the base engine of the factory Volkswagen Marine marine engine. Our marinised car engines are exceptionally lightweight, compact and, thanks to continuous testing, incredibly reliable and durable.
Our basic business model for the production of marinised car engines is to use a used engine block with few hours of use, but in good condition, as the base engine. As an example, the base block for the MTM-225 is the Volkswagen Group’s 2.5 TDI, 5-cylinder, very well known, highly reliable engine, developed over 20 years, which is also the basis for the VW marine factory marine engine.
Our engine blocks will undergo a complete major overhaul in a specialised workshop: such as overhaul of the cylinder head, camshaft, sleeve, piston, rings, crank, crank bearing, crankshaft, crankshaft bearing, etc. All bearings, seals, oil seals, and oil seals will be replaced. In addition, a complete overhaul of the alternator, starter motor and the entire fuel system will be carried out. Thus, these engine blocks are considered as zero km blocks, which is close to factory parameters. In this case, the result is officially a zero km engine. Our marinised car engines have an expected service life of 3500-4000 hours.
