Bertram 20 Moppie Repowered with Yanmar Diesel - 07/02/2008
Untitled Page </head> <body> <span style="font-family: Arial">Mack Boring, the New Jersey distributor for Yanmar recently repowered a vintage Bertram 20, better known as the Moppie. Originally it was powered by a 175-hp OMC gas engine with sterndrive. Boring replaced the 746-lb. gas sterndrive package with a 683-lb. 6BY220Z diesel driving through a MerCruiser Bravo III. Mack Boring sent us his test results recently and the results were so startling that we asked to test the boat ourselves. In the meantime, we’re so excited by the tremendous improvement in fuel efficiency obtained by the Yanmar 220-hp diesel that we are passing them along. </span> <br /> <br /> <table style="font-size: 12pt;
