Volvo Penta Launches its Most Powerful Engine Yet


Start your engines! The D13 1000-hp is the strongest marine engine ever created by Volvo Penta.

The newly designed D13 engine was unveiled at the Sydney Boat Show in August. The release of this new engine allows to company to move into the 1,000-hp engine range for the first time.

“This is hugely exciting for us to create our most powerful engine yet,” says Johan Wästeräng, vice president for product management in the marine leisure segment at Volvo Penta. “It’s truly a landmark product for our marine range, and really gives us a bigger step into the large yacht market. We’ve spent a long time talking to customers about what they want, and refining our engine and IPS designs, so that we can offer unique experiences with exceptional products that are ideal for world-class vessels.”

Volvo Penta’s complementary IPS pod drive, which was also revealed at the show, has been upgraded to match the higher power of the engine.
