John Deere also protects the air outside your boat by complying with international, European, and United States emissions standards for regulated vessels. John Deere meets Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Marine Tier 3 emissions regulations with a complete line of PowerTech engines for newly constructed vessels as well as repowered boats.
