SOLÉ, Spain., founded in 1914 has made over 50,000 marine
motors since it was established.
SOLÉ DIESEL did not start to manufacture marine
motors until 1949, when it built one, two and three-cylinder engines
with a maximum power of 30 HP. These motors were completely designed
and built at the Martorell factory. Afterwards, an air-cooled motor was
transformed to a seawater cooling system, using Lombardini two- and
three-cylinder blocks. Over the years, SOLÉ DIESEL has developed and
created its own adaptation systems and original parts for adapting the
motors it has imported to a marine environment.
From 1972 onwards, SOLÉ, S.A. took up the challenge
of adapting engines of up to 150 HP to a marine environment, with a
Perkins, and then a Mercedes base. In 1978, the company took a great
leap forward - adapting motors to a marine environment using a
The company currently has the latest technology in
production, including numerically-controlled centres winches, new test
banks for engines, new test banks for gear changers, new installations
for production and propeller balancing, thus obtaining an 80% increase
in production over the last five years.
SOLÉ, S.A. has now attained "a
position of leadership in the range of motors smaller than 150 HP." It
has also been able to carve a niche in foreign markets, in Europe,
North Africa, North and South America, Asia and Oceania
marine engines are extensively used by professionals
and hobbyists on work boats, pleasure craft and narrow boats .
