Check Out the Torque on These Babies

Volvo Penta launches new D11 marine diesel engines, plus new IPS drives to match.

Volvo Penta D11

Volvo Penta is now offering new D11 marine diesels in three power classes: 625, 670 and 725 horsepower, along with two new IPS models — the IPS800 and IPS950 — that are optimized for integration with the D11s.

Each of the in-line, six-cylinder diesels provides more powerful torque, improved drivability and reduced noise levels compared to other engines in those classes, and they meet the world’s strictest emission standards, according to Volvo Penta.

“We have further enhanced our twin-entry turbo where each exhaust pulse maximizes charging pressure,” Thomas Lantz, chief product manager, stated in a press release. “This gives an extremely powerful torque already at low RPM. The engine responds instantly to operator commands and provides improved drivability with stronger acceleration.”

Volvo Penta says the D11 is ideally suited for flybridge yachts, express yachts and sport cruisers.

“The weight of these boats typically places high demands on the engine performance,” Lantz stated. “The D11’s high torque at low RPMs produces rapid acceleration to plane enhancing safety, fuel efficiency and comfort.”
