MARINE: Seascape Thrives On Yanmar
Recent Western Cape Business News
SEASCAPE Marine Services (formerly IMS Cape) has represented Yanmar Marine since the early 1980’s and offers a complete engine range to local boat builders and individuals.
“When it comes to marine diesels, reliability is the most highly valued factor and each Yanmar diesel has been designed and manufactured using knowledge accumulated steadily since 1912. Around the world, Yanmar diesels are one of the most popular choices. Their durability, economy, performance and after-sales network make them a first choice for owners, operators, shipyards, and boating industry professionals,” says Jamie de Jong, director of Seascape in Cape Town.
As Yanmar engines evolve, they are ever lighter, more fuel efficient, more compact and more user friendly as well as meeting the latest exhaust emission regulations, he points out.
The range of diesel motors offered by Seascape Marine Services includes high speed commercial and pleasure rated marine main engines; inboard engine out-drive units (sterndrives); pleasure boat drive units (Sail-Drive, V-Drive, Angle-Drive, Pod drives) and an efficient lightweight power generator for sailboats that fits conveniently between the engine and transmission.
Complementing the Yanmar engines Seascape Marine Services is also the distributor for HamiltonJet waterjets and therefore able to offer a complete propulsion range.
With over 40 000 waterjet units installed around the world, HamiltonJet represents the latest in water jet propulsion technology and is the preferred choice for efficient propulsion of a wide range of high-speed patrol and military boats, passenger ferries, crew boats, rescue vessels, tourist excursion craft, fishing vessels and recreational pleasure cruisers. The current HamiltonJet waterjet range includes models for power inputs from 100 to 5 000hp for vessels typically up to 60 metres in length.
All models are designed for easy installation, reliability, low maintenance requirements and maximum propulsive efficiency in a wide range of working conditions, de Jong says.
“In addition, the after sales service department at Seascape Marine Services (Pty) Ltd with its many years of experience in maintenance and repair to all types of diesel engines since the 1960’s, is more than adequately resourced to attend to the full range of Yanmar marine diesel engines and HamiltonJet waterjets after sales and spares requirements 24 hours per day worldwide,” de Jong says.
