Officials of Indmar Products Company and Steyr Motors have signed a multi-year agreement that will add one of Steyr’s most popular diesels to Indmar’s engine line. Chuck Rowe, president of Indmar and Steyr Motors CEO Rudolf Mandorfer made the announcement jointly.
The agreement calls for Indmar to purchase, brand and sell Steyr’s popular 250-hp, MO256H45 engine as the Indmar 256 Marine Diesel by Steyr. Indmar will warranty the engines and service them though its dealer network. Indmar will initially target the ski boat market, where it is the world’s leading supplier of propulsion engines.
“The strategic alliance with Steyr assures our customers of the same quality and service they expect from Indmar gasoline engines,” Rowe said. “This new diesel will provide a viable alternative engine, especially for commercial operators and operators of other high-use vessels.”
Steyr’s Mandorfer said, “With its outstanding weight-to-horsepower ratio, the 256 engine is a perfect choice for Indmar’s ski boat and wake boat customers. This is the beginning of an excellent, long-term relationship between our two companies.”
