MAN Yacht Engines Win International Award

The MAN Engines company seated in Germany announced that its i6-800 and i6-730 marine engines won the Red Dot international award for quality and design. An independent professional panel took into account factors such as innovations, functionalities and eco-friendliness. In a speech after the award ceremony, Head of MAN Marine Engines Claus Benzler said: “With the introduction of the i6, we now have a MAN engine which no longer purely represents reliability and performance. The design of the i6 engine is extraordinary. It is the “icing on the cake” for luxury yachts, and next to dynamics, it also brings aesthetics to the engine room.”. MAN introduced the latest 6-cylinder engines in December 2015, with the aim of equipping yachts, sports vessels and fishing vessels. The MAN i6-800 has an output of 588 kW, while the smaller MAN i6-730 has an output of 537 kW. They are equipped with modern common rail injection systems with up to 1800 bar.
