Both Catalina Yachts and the panel manufacturer report thousands of boats were built using this shape panel. But there is not a detailed history of the engine panel used on each boat built. Please check the dimensions of your panel to insure this panel is suitable for your boat. This panel is designed for use with a Universal Diesel engine. For boats equipped with a Yanmar diesel, see the Yanmar panel below shown under "May we also suggest".
Click on the link to the Detailed PDF below for a copy of the drawing illustrating every feature and circuit on the panel.
1) Early engine installations were wired to use an ammeter in the instrument panel. The entire alternator output was routed through the instrument panel. This added many feet of wire to the circuit. The added resistance reduced the voltage that reached the battery and the effectiveness of the charging system. A simple wiring change improved this system substantially. The circuitry of our new panel is designed assuming the change has been made to your boat. Do not install this panel until the wiring change has been made! Refer to the PDF below under "Read More" for complete instructions.
3) Please note your engine's make and model in the comments section at checkout.
4) The tachometer is adjusted by our vendor to be approximately correct when installed on a boat equipped with an M25XP with standard factory installed alternator and pulleys. The reading can only be exact if calibrated after installation using a mechanical tach or strobe. All other engine installations require adjustment after installation of the tachometer to achieve reasonable accuracy.
5) This special order item will be made for you personally. Once ordered, special orders may not be canceled or returned, so please choose carefully.
