X-342 Sailboat repowering with MINI-29 engine
|Boat type||Sailing boat|
|Replaced||Volvo Penta 2002|
|Other equipment installed|
The MINI-29 is mounted on a Mitsubishi 3 cylinder mechanical injection engine block with an output of 27 hp at 3600 rpm and 952 cc. Its ultra-compact size and design and ease of maintenance were the key factors in the decision to use this engine for the boat. In addition, a wide range of kits are available to facilitate repoering, adapting it to the size of the old engine, and customisations such as: relocation of filters, bow-mounted saltwater pump, dry exhaust, etc.
To minimise the risk of leaks, all Solé engines are manufactured with a single piece heat exchanger without welding.
