SAILDRIVE 330 MkII the inboard engine
for sailing people
330 MkII based on a well proven Cross Flow 4-stroke engine.
Our Saildrive 330 MkII complies with U.S."Three Star"
rating regarding exhaust emissions and has extremely silent
running. The Saildrive 330 MkII can also replace older Volvo
Penta MB2A/50S installations (some modifications to the engine
bed is needed). The engine could be installed in a narrow
engine compartment. The engine length and the height is only
approx. 500 mm and the width is just 350 mm. The weight for
the complete installation is about 50 kg! This smooth engine
is suitable for sailboats up to approx. 4000 kg.
The gear-house and the complete drive-train are all the same
parts as for the standard utboard as it is based on. The special
developed Folding-propeller is made in bronze and is manufactured
by Flex-O-Fold. The propeller is fitted on a spline propeller
shaft. The special made propeller is also fixed in a rubber
hub to achieve smooth running and also to avoid galvanic impact
to the gear-house.
When sailing the gearhouse gives a minimum of water-resistance.
This is perfect for all sailors, but we who use to sail-race
really appreciate this. The gear-house is epoxy-coated to
prevent corrosion. One inner and one outer Zinc-anode are
fitted. Together with the rubber provided propeller hub, gives
an efficient protection towards galvanic corrosion.
A powerful long lasting seawater impeller-pump and intake
filter is placed in the gear-house.
Our Saildrive 330 is installed in
hundreds of sailboats. Some of them are listed below:
