When BUKH's 36 HP marine diesel was introduced some years ago it created something  of a sensation in the marine engine industry. The best marine diesel in the world it was  called because it was so quiet and smooth.
- It is still the engine that has the lowest noise level. 
- It is still completely free from vibrations. 
- It has a very low fuel consumption. 
- It is still a thorough marine diesel created for use in saltwater environment. 
With a DV 36 the larger sailing yachts, motor sailors and displacement boats can  get the same comfort as boats with smaller BUKH engines.
