If you’re looking for big diesel power, you’ve found it in the new MAN V12-1650. The new 1,650-hp 12-cylinder engine is targeted for yachts up to 100 feet. MAN designed the engine’s torque curve to kick in as low as 1,200 rpm, so you can make good headway without having to run the engine at the upper limits of its power band, saving fuel. MAN’s second-generation common-rail fuel injection helps ensure efficiency. Additionally, the V12-1650’s exhaust is a single outlet, which simplifies rigging. The water pump is gear-driven, which is more robust than belts. Parts that require service, such as fuel and oil filters, are mounted for easy access.
