Following on from its most powerful twelve-cylinder engine yet, with 2000hp, the MAN V12X boasts 30-litre displacement and 2200hp (1618 kW) at 2300rpm.

“The MAN V12X marks the start of the next generation of yacht engines. We are acknowledging this milestone in engine technology with the new name V12X and giving the distinctive engine cover an X design. The redesign of the MAN V12X is accompanied by extra displacement for shipyards. As always, we have retained the excellent power-to-weight ratio that MAN engines are known for,” explains Werner Kübler, Head of Engineering MAN Engines.
