      Hi CropdusterYes there are diesel outboards. I have never seen one myself and know nothing about them. Do a search on this board there have been some interesting threads written about them.

        CropdusterPilotSnapperbait is right, Yanmar make a 27 and a 36hp, they weigh a ton and cost a fortune. There is a dealer in Tahiti with a whole BIG shed full of them, They used to work.Kiwi

            Carniti, an Italian company used to make diesel outboards and may still be making them. Saw them at a shown in Chicago over 20 years ago.

              they do exist-when i visited one of the caribbean islands several years ago, the pontoon boat we had for a tour had 2 diesel outboards. they were noisy, ran relately rough and smoked a bunch.
