MAN Engines has introduced two new innovations that stand out from their competitors due to their unique nature: the V12-2000 and the V8-1300 series diesel engines. The MAN V12-2000 is the only 2,000 hp twelve-cylinder V-engine, which generates enormous power from its 24 liters of displacement.

Likewise, the strongest V8 engine for yachts and sport-fishing boats on the market is the new MAN V8-1300.

The engine produces 1,300 hp from its 16 liters of displacement. Both offer high power density, with minimal space requirements and lower weight than competitive engines.

“With the V12-2000 and the V8-1300, we have set a new benchmark for performance and compactness,” says Claus Benzler, MAN’s head of marine power. “MAN engines have always offered performance at the highest level, and will continue to do so in the future.”
