Volvo Penta said it launched its most powerful marine engine to date, the 1,000-hp D13, at the Sydney International Boat Show in Australia.

The 13-liter diesel engine is designed for large yachts.

The new D13-1000 sees Volvo Penta move into the 1,000-hp marine leisure engine market for the first time and provides higher performance, greater durability and more comfort than ever before, the company said.

The inboard engine and its equivalent from Volvo Penta’s Inboard Performance System (IPS) range — the D13-IPS1350 — have been designed for the benefit of customers operating yachts as large as 120 feet.

“This is hugely exciting for us to create our most powerful engine yet,” Johan Wästeräng, vice president for product management in the marine leisure segment at Volvo Penta, said in a statement.

“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.”
