Pleasure to be enjoyed: Our engines combine the supreme performance of acceleration and speed with the most economic fuel consumption in their class. This is how MAN sustainably contributes to protection of the environment. And the total costs of yacht maintenance drop appreciably. Of course a MAN engine fulfills all applicable exhaust-gas standards worldwide – for travel adventure without frontiers.
The dependable propulsive power
A MAN engine never lets anyone down: In the harbor and on the open sea. Engine start – full speed ahead. It reliably proves its operational power in all weathers. And because every piece of jewelry would like to be well-kept, there is a worldwide dense service network – everywhere where you also feel good.
Clean and quiet
This engine has style, and especially through its understatement it contributes to the luxurious overall picture of the yacht. Its ride quality is always low-vibration and quiet, even at top performance. So the feeling of comfort on board can develop unchecked. A MAN engine means relaxation at the press of a button. MAN gives the safety to concentrate fully on what is essential – without any disturbance from the engine room.
The highest power density on the market: MAN V12-2000; the strongest V8 engine in the yacht sector: MAN V8-1300
MAN engineers have developed the V12-2000, which is the only twelve-cylinder V-engine with 2,000 hp (1,471kW) to date, which generates enormous power from 24 litres of displacement.
Likewise, the strongest V8 engine for yachts and sport fishing boats on the market is the newly introduced V8-1300, which puts forth 1,300 hp (956 kW) from 16 litres of displacement.
Both the V12-2000 and V8-1300 engines impress with extremely high power densities of 61 kW and 59 kW respectively per litre of displacement. The minimal space requirement and low weight spell out a clear advantage in
terms of ship design, when compared to similarly powerful engines with larger displacement and more cylinders.This is because the installation dimensions of the V12-1900 and the V8-1200 – the formerly highest power levels – have been retained, as they were already compact. These dimensions are 2,159 x 1,153 x 1,272 mm (length x width x height) for the V12-2000, and 1,736 x 1,153 x 1,222 mm (length x width x height) for the V8-1300. The dry weights of 2,380 kg (V12-2000) and 1,880 kg (V8-1300) have also remained the same; through a power increase of both engines, this also contributes to a noticeably lower power/weight ratio of 1.62 kg/kW for the V12-2000, and 1.96 kg/kW for the V8-1300. “With the V12-2000 and the V8-1300 we have set a new benchmark for performance and compactness,” says Claus Benzler, Head of Marine MAN Engines, delighted.
Through a series of modifications, MAN engineers have managed a power increase of 100 hp (74 kW) respectively,compared to the previously most powerful V12 and V8 engines from their range. The performance-oriented design is supported by an improved injection system and new turbo charger. This is aided by newly developed
cylinder heads and an adjusted cooling system which noticeably provides thermal relief for the engine with its high performance. Additionally, a new crankcase which has been reinforced in significant areas, ensures high performance throughout the entirety of the engine’s long service life. Highly efficient combustion allows the V12-2000 and the V8-1300 to run quietly, as is typical for MAN Engines, and with low fuel consumption.
The V12-2000 offers customers the most powerful engine above the V12-1900, the previously most powerful engine, from the MAN Engines range. The superior engine performance allows shipyards to access additional possibilities for equipping larger ship series of around 100 feet with MAN engines. Additionally, as the most powerful V8 engine on the market, the V8-1300 makes it possible to integrate the highest-performing engines into existing applications. “Our MAN engines have always offered performance at the highest level.We currently stand out to a great extent in the market with the V12-2000 and the V8-1300, and will continue as such in the future,” says Benzler.
V-engines and in-line six-cylinder engines available
Both engines meet the currently applicable emissions requirements US EPA Tier 3 as well as IMO Tier II, and can thus be operated in all common and popular areas. With the introduction of both new engine types, MAN Engines offers a gap-free power range for yachts from 730 to 2,000 hp (539 to 1,471 kW) for V8 and
V12 engines as well as the following inline six-cylinder engines: i6-730, i6-800, V8-1000, V8-1200, V8-1300, V12-1400, V12-1550, V12-1650, V12-1800, V12-1900 and V12-2000.

Lower fuel consumption reduces costs
You can count on MAN. Fuel is a critical element of your total costs: The economy of our high-quality engines is guaranteed by the lowest consumption in their class. Low maintenance and spare parts costs, high operating times, and a long service life make another important contribution to your profitability analysis. MAN engines are at the same time also a decision to opt for responsibility: Compliance with all applicable exhaust-gas standards contributes sustainable to environmental protection.
MAN engines are the propulsive force in commercial shipping – for economic success on ferries and fishing vessels, as well as for the safety and life of people on lifeboats and police boats. In addition to the pulling power, dependability also plays a fundamental role here. MAN engines deliver maximum efficiency at maximum torque, and always provide their service at the same time as you. The give you the assurance of being able to carry out your work reliably. So that others can also count on you.
Compact design with high performance
Space is money. Their compact design allows our engines to create more useful area on board. This enables load optimization, and better accessibility makes work easier in the engine room. But the slim design does not mean any compromise in performance. Of course you can demand full power from MAN engines at all times.
Low power/weight ratio
The weight of the engine has critical economic importance especially in boat building. It allows greater cargo. And this with a high performance and pulling power. In their class, MAN engines are leaders for high performance at low weight. And even in the high speed range, the ride quality is always low-vibration and quiet. This supports safe and ergonomic work, and assures use in all sea swells.
MAN Engine Range for auxiliary engines
MAN Engines offers powerful and compact diesel just as gas engines with 6 and 12 cylinders for use as auxiliary engines. The three engine series (two diesel engines and one gas engine) cover ratings range from 190-800 kW (258-1,088 hp) with the diesel engines and 500-580 kW (680-789 hp) with the gas engine.
With 12.42 l to 25.78 l displacement, the engines are based on the latest engine platforms and the most cutting-edge high-volume technologies from MAN Truck & Bus SE. The compact construction of the engines leads to a compact construction of the auxiliary engines, which is a high benefit on board.
All engines satisfy the IMO tier II and with the SCR system from MAN Engines the IMO tier III emission standards as well.
Applications for auxiliary engines
