Okuyama’s speech: “Thank you and it is a great honor to receive a Special Award of Boat of the Year Japan 2017. Yanmar was engaged in Japanese and global ship industry having its diesel engine as their core. X39 EXPRESS CRUISER is a compilation of Yanmar’s experience and technology, therefore winning this award means so much for both Yanmar and marine industry. We are very proud that we proposed a new design which introduces comfortability to an aggressive interior of a powerboat using the technology of inboard diesel engine and stern drive. We would like to continue providing some exceptional experiences to our customers.”
