There's a company that specializes in marinizing MB diesels. I visited their website a couple of years ago but for the life of me, I can't remember the name of the company.
I've seen a number of boats on Europe Ebay with MB diesels.

Thumbs up

CRMONT, it looks like you are in the same fix as I am with the 318s and 1MPG. That's why I'm on the hunt for a MB diesel swap. I have a nice wood Richardson on Lake Ontario that I would like to get going ---IF it wasn't going to cost me a bundle to run it. Why not use the MB auto that goes with the engine and let her go. It can be cooled. Mine have run a long time under tow loads without complaint. It would be quiet. And it would hardly be the guzzler that the 318 is.

MBZ marinization parts

I came across this site (http://www.lancingmarine.com/homepage.html) a couple of years ago. It used to have some information about marinizing Merercedes OMs, particularly OM314, OM352/321, OM364 and OM366. In the marine tranmission and bellhousing section, there were references to OM 616 and OM617 adapters.

The site appears out of date now...

In considering this sort of conversion remember, the IP/governor on the 617.952 engines will not be suitable for fixed throttle operation.

The best solution to your 1mpg is sails.

Marinisated DMV diesel engines--See the OM616

Here is a link to Mercedes-Benz Marine diesel engines:
http://www.dmv-bootsdiesel.de/Englisher%20Index/Lieferprogramm/MercedesBenz/mercedesbenz.html

Note the OM616 in the botton right corner. Always thought they would make a great little marine engine.

Another sailer in Colorado! What the hell are we doing in this state? I should say that I'm pretty much a wanna-be sailer and the only boat I have ever owned was a Hobie 18. I got tired of the droughts we had a couple years ago and sold it.

I need to move to the coast, buy a boat, and just start sailing (or pay someone to sail with them. Circumnavigation, here I come )

Try a pair of 340hp 454's! Low 20gph range each.!

If I remember correctly turning at 3,200rpm they burn 21gph each according to the Flowscan. With the Flowscan you can see the secondaries(sp?) on the carbs open up!


I have never seen a car engine take to the water well. They never hold up and seem to suck tons of fuel. A pair of fuel injected 350's would be the way to go.

Here's a shot of my latest marine engine repair project. It consumes a whooping 2-3 gpd (gallons per day). It's the 18hp Volvo model 2002 diesel auxiliary installed in my son's sailboat. Affectionately referred to as the "Bulgine"

Cool

Volkswagen also makes marine versions of their TDI engines... from a 40 HP 4 cylinder to a 150 HP 5 cylinder, NA or Turbo.

http://www.volkswagen-marine.com/index_e.htm

http://www.autoshoppingcenter.com/VW/VW_marine.html

I told my uncle several years ago that he should put a Mercedes-Benz 617 Turbo in his boat. It had a dead Mercury 150 HP 4 banger that was just begging to be junked.

Wonder if they can make one to use a T-5 behind the 617 engine.

Ever seen a long tail boat? I took one up the river Kwai (Thailand) It had a 240D mounted on a pivot, the drive shaft was welded to a long pipe, with a prop at the end, the operator has only a yoke attached to the engine and swings the entire assy one way or the other to direct the boats path, dipping the prop deeper to go fast, a gas (er diesel) can on the floor of the boat and a car battery setting along side for starting. Not the sort of thing you will find in the mainland USofA. There are probably laws against this over here
This contraption that will lay you back as it accelerates the boat to a fast clip and with the exhaust wide open it makes communicating with the passenger in front or in rear of you (single file here!) almost impossible, even if you haven't had a few Singhas. In only seconds this boat is up to skimming the waves and the resulting breeze cools you somewhat fom the sweltering heat and high humidity in that part of the world. Ah yes, I gottta do that one again!
I wonder how many MB engines have found their way into this kind of boat?
