MAN Engines for (Luxury) Yachts and Sport Fishing Boats

Yacht engines from MAN Engines: Certified to all major emission standards – for use in all parts of the world

For your yacht engines, MAN Engines can now provide emission certificates satisfying all the major engine emission standards throughout the world: In particular these include EPA Tier 3, China Marine Recreational Stage II, IMO Tier II and RCD 2013/53/EC (EU Recreational Craft Directive). In this way shipyards and yacht builders can offer their products in sales markets throughout the world, and owners can enjoy the greatest possible flexibility in the use and resale of their boats.

The most recent homologation granted the MAN Engines twelve-cylinder, eight-cylinder and six-cylinder engines type approval to the China Marine Recreational Stage II engine emission standard. With limit values of 5.8 g/kWh NOx and 0.12 g/kWh particulate matter – in the power class available from MAN Engines – these also satisfy the limit values of the EU and the USA. The China Marine Recreational Stage II engine emission standard comes into force on 1 July 2022. The current China Marine Recreational Stage I standard is also satisfied by the current MAN certificate.

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.
