ENGINE & MECHANICAL
is no place where proper preventative maintenance and safety
precautions are more important and necessary than in the
A non-functioning engine means a motor yacht is stranded and
Sailing yachts rely on the engine and mechanical equipment
for safety, an easy means of mobility, and the ability to
use and enjoy many auxiliary items that
operate with it.
These items also likely represent the most expensive and
complex portion of your yacht’s specification and inventory.
Marine Solutions has the experience, knowledge and
capability to repair, upgrade or replace your engines and
any other mechanical equipment on your yacht. We represent
the best manufacturers and brands of engines, generators,
transmission and running gear and other mechanical products.
What we also can do for you is develop innovative ways to
improve the performance, efficiency and safety
of your engine and mechanical equipment. A neat, clean and
well organized engine room is a lovely thing to behold, but
it also means that fluid leaks and abnormal functioning of
equipment can easily be detected and quickly dealt with.
Marine Solutions can detail, service, re-wire, re-insulate
and re-plumb your engine room to make it a safe, quiet and
more efficient center for operating and maintaining your
engine and mechanical equipment.
New technology and manufacturing processes have enabled
engine manufacturers to make great strides in design and
fabrication. Older engines can be replaced with lighter,
more powerful and more efficient
models. These new engines can offer greater horsepower for a
given footprint or provide a smaller footprint for the same
amount of power and torque. Fuel efficiency and range can be
greatly optimized. We can
help you choose the most appropriate engine replacement for
Engines require major service or re-building at some factory
specified number of hours. Engines can be removed for major
replacement. This can be a great time to clean, detail and
upgrade the rest of the surrounding engine room with the
additional space and access afforded by the engine being out
of the boat.
Marine Solutions can repair, provide parts and filters,
service or replace such well-known brands of diesel and gas
engines as Beta Marine,
Yanmar, Perkins, Westerbeke, Cummins, Detroit, Ford Lehman,
Mazda Rotary marine conversions and others.
Gears / Transmissions
Noise, vibration and inefficiency do not necessarily mean
you need a total replacement of your transmission, V-drive,
hydraulic drive or sail drive. Sometimes a simple
realignment of the engine, transmission and drive shaft can
solve serious issues. Rebuilding transmissions and drive
units can increase efficiency, stop slippage and can avoid
future deterioration of the unit.
Marine Solutions can identify whether a repair, rebuild or
replacement is most appropriate for your boat and perform
the proper job.
Traditional stuffing boxes and stern tube glands can be
re-stuffed or replaced with modern bellows no-leak
replacements. This will keep the shaft properly lubricated
as it passes through the stern tube gland with minimal water
Thrust Bearings & Couplers
Bad alignment causes noise, vibration, leaks and damage.
Separate thrust bearing units such as Scatra Drives and
other vibration-reducing bearings and couplings can be
installed to eliminate excessive vibration long distances
between transmission and stuffing box. They can also help
avoid serious damage to your transmission. The result is
quiet, efficient performance and longevity of power train
equipment and components.
Rudders & Struts
Misalignment or grounding can damage struts, rudders and
associated bearings. Struts and cutlass bearings can be
checked for repair,
replacement and to see if new bearings are required.
Groundings or hitting unseen underwater objects can damage
and props. We can repair, replace, re-balance and service
propeller shafts and props, often with very fast turnaround
times. Propeller design and efficiency is a whole discipline
of marine engineering. There are many choices today for
improved propeller options that can maximize speed, range,
power and fuel efficiency. We can offer fixed, feathering,
folding and other sophisticated and efficient propeller
We can inspect your engine and mechanical equipment for
problems to make sure they are operating as designed and as
efficiently as possible by utilizing the latest diagnostic
tools and equipment available. We work in conjunction with
the manufacturer’s technical departments to analyze and
interpret the diagnostic data to best maximize performance.
Much of today’s modern marine equipment operates on
Hydraulics offer tremendous power and efficiency in
relatively small lightweight drive units. Hydraulic motors
and pumps effectively operate multiple remote drive units
for equipment items such as windlasses, capstans, winches,
furling systems, bow thrusters, and even main
propulsion systems. We make use of some of the most advanced
high pressure hydraulic connectors to insure longevity and
eliminate leaks and connection failures. We can service your
existing components or design, integrate and install modern
innovative and efficient hydraulic systems to make operation
of your yacht safer and easier.
All marine engines run on fuel of some kind, typically gas
Whatever your engine’s fuel type it needs to be kept clean
and delivered clean to your engine. There are a variety of
fuel filters that pre-filter the fuel from your tanks by
separating water, debris and algae from the fuel before it
can get to your engine and cause trouble. All engines have
some type of primary filter built into the engine as well.
Contaminated fuel can greatly reduce the power and
efficiency of your engine and make it unusable. Marine
Solutions can replace or upgrade your existing filter system
or design and install a new and improved fuel filter system.
Some choices include multiple stage filters, multiple micron
spec filters, filter manifold switching systems,
contamination alarms and more.
Oil Lubricating System
Scheduled changing of engine oil is a necessary hassle. It’s
to reach and maneuver the drain plug without making a mess.
Portable pumps are messy, inefficient and you still have to
deal with storing and disposing the dirty oil. Automatic oil
changing systems can greatly
simplify this process, but you still have to dispose of the
There are also long term oil purifying systems that are
constantly filtering and renewing your lubricating oil. The
advantage of these systems is that you don’t need to change
your oil and the oil is always doing the best job protecting
your engine as it is always 99.9% clean. Marine Solutions
can help upgrade your oil changing process or install an
efficient oil filtration.
Marine Solutions can solve your power production and
consumption issues with high quality components incorporated
into a sensible and efficient energy management system. Your
yacht’s equipment and appliances may consume more energy
than your generator, engine alternator, battery charger and
converter can supply.
You can upgrade to technologically advanced equipment
models, add passive energy collectors such as solar panels
and wind turbines, and add high storage capacity batteries
and inverters. We can effectively match or exceed your power
consumption with the energy produced.
The end result is that you will be able to utilize and enjoy
the benefits of the equipment you have and avoid power
interruption or depletion of your battery bank while sailing
