MAN Engines delivered the first two units of their most powerful high-speed diesel engine, V12-1900, to Riviera. A manufacturer of luxury yachts and sport fishing boats, the Australian company will equip its flagship model Riviera 77 Enclosed Flybridge with both new twelve-cylinder V engines. Boasting a length of nearly 25 metres, the yacht with a luxurious fly bridge can thus rely on a total engine power of 2,794 kW (3,800 HP) and is, according to the manufacturer, able to achieve a top speed of 35 kn. Launched and tested in January 2016, the vessel was being transferred to the Middle East after it. The MAN V12-1900 had its first global debut at Cannes Yachting Festival 2015.
The MAN i6-800 and MAN i6-730 in-line six-cylinder engines have won the international Red Dot award for their excellent design quality. Participants from 57 nations had registered about 5,200 products and innovations for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016. Only products which set themselves apart considerably through their excellent design receive the sought-after quality seal from the international Red Dot jury.
MAN Engines is set to present its latest generation of six-cylinder engines at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show in Florida, USA. These engines are de-signed to be used in yachts and trawlers up to 55 feet, as well as in sport fishing boats. The basic six-cylinder engine has been tried and tested many hundreds of thousands of times in a wide range of on- and off-road machinery since it was first introduced in 2007.
The MAN V12-1900 is the most powerful high-speed four-stroke diesel engine of MAN Engines to date. The twelve-cylinder V engine provides 1,397 kW (1,900 hp) and was specifically designed for use in luxury yachts of over 100 feet.
Since 2014 MAN offers a wide range of yacht engines for compliance with the EPA Tier 3 emission standard for the USA. With the low-emission MAN engines, ship builders and owners continue to meet the statutory requirements of the US Environmental Protection Agency.
