The Special Products Division is a team of specialists recognised globally for the design and development of custom-built inboard and outboard marine engines. With the support of R&D, the team has created several patented technologies, including the popular PIRS, which restarts an outboard engine after being submerged and is now available in two-stroke and four-stroke variations.
The 30hp EFI delivers strong boat balance and handling with electronic fuel injection which provides smoother, cleaner running. These new, small engines also offer improved torque and outstanding fuel economy and, as you would expect of Mariner, the pioneering application of EFI in this class brings with it improved reliability and reduced maintenance
We offer a rebuild facility for our military, commercial and rescue customers.

Situated just 5 miles from Barrus headquarters, Grebe Lake provides a 50 acre site for year-round trials.
This trial was on a Zodiac Milpro inflatable boat powered by a 60hp Mariner outboard engine.
In the 1950s, Barrus began building a considerable reputation for the supply of outboard engines to the RNLI and, within a decade, over half the outboard engines for its D Class lifeboats were supplied by the Special Products Division.
Since then, we have also developed relationships with other major professional rescue organisations including Police, Fire and Search & Rescue Units to deliver custom engine packages and reliably equip the teams to operate in the most challenging conditions.
