Some VW Marine Engine Installation Manuals & Self-Study Manuals PDF above the page.
In 2009, at the world's largest exhibition of small boats "Boot", two premieres of boats developed by the Volkswagen Marine division took place.
The Frauscher 909 Benaco was presented in Dusseldorf. This is the first boat type to be powered by the new 258 kW (350 hp) TDI 350-8 marine engines with an extremely high torque of 700 Nm at 1900 rpm.
The Frauscher 909 Benaco was nominated by an international jury for the 2009 Best Boat of the Year award in its class.
Frauscherwerft equips this boat with the TDI 350-8 marine engine because, with half the fuel consumption, it achieves the same speeds as the most powerful petrol engines.
At the same time, the engine provides acceleration for planing that cannot be achieved even with large displacement gasoline engines. In addition, the TDI 350-8 marine engines are lighter, cleaner and quieter.
Another innovative contribution to the development of the boat of the future is the boat Greenline 33 of the Slovenian Seaway Group.
It is a vessel for cruising inland river and coastal sea waters.
In the basic configuration, the boat is equipped with a hybrid installation and powerful solar panels on the roof, which makes it possible to operate it in environmentally sensitive waters and perform maneuvers in harbors.
Of particular note is the new hull design. It achieves a cruising speed of 18.5 km / h and 55 kW (75 hp) using the compact and efficient TDI 75-4 marine engines developed by Volkswagen Marine.
