The Volvo Penta D11 is a compact, powerful engine series with improved basic design. This in-line, six-cylinder diesel engine has been boosted with a large number of technical upgrades.
Thanks to the enhanced power and torque characteristics, this engine generation excels in driveability. The engines’ performance is also improved thanks to their impressive power-to-weight ratio. By meeting the US EPA Tier 3 standards, its environmental impact is also reduced.
The Volvo Penta D11 is the natural choice for flybridge yachts and sports cruisers between 45 and 55 feet. These boats weigh around 20 tons, which places high demands on the engines’ torque when it comes to getting the boats on the plane.
The high torque at low rpms gives rapid acceleration to the plane. This is important for safety, fuel consumption and comfort.
With an effective turbo and air filter featuring improved noise reduction, the perceived noise levels are reduced significantly. At the same time, the robust design helps minimize the onboard vibrations.
