Workboat and Commercial

Scotia 3.jpg


The Special Products Division, assisted by the R&D team, is fully equipped to cater to the fishing market and we now have a large portfolio of commercial fishing boats powered by John Deere and Shire Workboat engines.

Covering a power range from 15hp – 750hp, John Deere and Shire Workboat engines have been specifically designed with commercial users in mind and are renowned for their rugged reliability, durability and fuel efficiency. Offering years of trouble free maintenance and available as bespoke packages, these engines can be tailored to suit specific requirements and offer an engine solution for a wide range of commercial applications.

We deliver an extensive service from start to finish and work closely with our customers to establish requirements and deliver a custom solution. Utilising the same production and testing procedures that are applied to engines for the military and professional rescue services, the engines meet the highest quality standards laid down by ISO9001-2015 and allow for flexibility in designing and producing custom components and accessories. 

Prior to dispatch, each engine is extensively tested by dynamometers, tuned to suit fishing licenses and test run with a full delivery inspection. Sea trials are carried out before an application review and installation report upon completion. Our team of highly trained technicians provide on-going support throughout the life of the engine which is backed by a specialist dealer network.
