Hyundai SeasAll took the opportunity to introduce the new S30-OB diesel outboard – an innovative new concept in marine propulsion – during the Gyeonggi International Boat Show, which ran from May 9th to 12th 2019. The engine is the highest power diesel outboard-type motor currently in production with a maximum output of 270 horsepower and a maximum torque of 57.6 kg.m. The S30-OB was recognized for its technological prowess by winning this year's New Product Innovation Award.
In addition, its advanced concept propulsion system includes user-friendly devices such as rope jam prevention technology and trim speed control as well as options like a hydraulic PTO pump and a side thruster for enhanced maneuverability.
Hyundai SeasAll intends to launch the engine in export markets with aggressive pricing for a technically superior product. "The diesel outboard market is expected to replace existing gasoline outboards in Korea. We expect the S30-OB to play an important role as a cash cow in the company," said Seung-Kab Jeong, CEO of Hyundai SeasAll.
