Emission Standards

Emission standards are the legal requirements governing air pollutants released into the atmosphere. Emission standards set quantitative limits on the permissible amount of specific air pollutants that may be released from certain engines.


In the yacht / marine industry there are two common set of emission standards: the IMO and the EPA.


IMO Marine Engine Regulations

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) is an agency of the United Nations which has been formed to promote maritime safety.


IMO ship pollution rules are contained in the “International Convention on the Prevention of Pollution from Ships”, known as MARPOL


The NOx emission limits of Regulation 13 of MARPOL Annex VI apply to each marine diesel engine with a power output of more than 130 kW installed on a shi


NOX Limits

Tier         Date       KW< 130    KW <2,000               KW >2,000

IMO I      2000       17.0             45*(n-0.2)                9.8

IMO II     2011       14.4             44*(n-2.23)              7.7

IMO III    2016        3.4              9*(n-.02)                 1.96


EPA Marine Engine Regulations

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set EPA standards for exhaust and evaporative emissions to reduce the environmental impact from marine spark-ignition engines and vessels.


The emission standards require manufacturers to control exhaust emissions from the engines and evaporative emissions from fuel tanks and fuel lines.


NOX Limits

Tier         Date       KW< 130    KW <2,000               KW >2,000

EPA I      2004       17.0             45*(n-0.2)                9.8

EPA II     2011       75% of I      75% of I                    75% of I

Marine Engine Specifications

Marine Engines - Yacht Propulsion - Specifications

Most modern yachts utilize a reciprocating diesel engine as their prime power source, due to their operating simplicity, robustness and fuel economy compared to most other prime mover mechanisms.


The rotating crankshaft can be directly coupled to the propeller with slow speed engines, via a reduction gearbox for medium and high speed engines, or via an alternator and electric motor in diesel-electric vessels.


A diesel–electric transmission system includes a diesel engine connected to an electrical generator, creating electricity that powers an electric traction motor.


There are several propulsion systems available: with different specifications:


Propeller systems

A fan that transmits power by converting rotational motion into thrust.


Pod propulsion

Aa pitch propeller mounted on a steerable pod attached to the hull,  linked to the engines through either a direct mechanical link or diesel-electric link)


Waterjet Propulsion

A ducted propellor or pump which creates a jet of water, by forcing water through a nozzle.



Marine Engine Manufacturers


The are several Marine Engine Manufacturers.

The most common are MTU, Caterpillar, MAN and Rolls Royce Marine.
