The company's new 240-hp, turbocharged 4LHA S-series measures a compact 27"W x 41"L x 31"H and weighs just 1,072 pounds, which makes it appealing for boats with limited engine space. Slimmer than most four-cylinder models, shorter than most six-cylinder models, less bulky than most V-8 gasoline units, and weighing only 805 pounds, the 4LHA-STP engine is well suited to inboard applications and fits a variety of craft, including those with small engine rooms. Both the 4LHA-STZP, which is suitable for stern-drive applications and comes with a variety of outdrive options (including MerCruiser, as illustrated in the Yanmar image on the previous page), and the 4LHA-STP, the straight inboard version, have a 3.94-inch bore and 4.44-inch stroke and displace 210 cubic inches. They are turbocharged, after-cooled, and waste-gated for quicker acceleration and throttle response. As with all Yanmar engines, both new models were designed to be lightweight, smooth-running, and exceptionally quiet and are in compliance with IMO regulations.
