Automotive Diesel

I know this is probably a stupid question, but is it safe to use automotive diesel in a marine engine?

I don't have a diesel gas pump near my boat slip, so I thought it would be just as easy to buy a couple of 5 gallon diesel cans and fill up my boat everytime I visit, instead of motoring 4 miles everytime I need gas.

I have a Yanmar if that makes a difference.
