Continuing its long tradition of reliable and efficient high-performance yacht engines, the MTU 12V 2000 M96 next generation engine offers enhanced acceleration and low fuel consumption in 12-cylinder ratings from 1700 bhp to 1920 bhp and 16-cylinder ratings from 2185 bhp to 2600 bhp of power, making it particularly suitable for luxury and sportfishing yachts.

The Series 2000 M96 engine was the perfect choice for this application. There are other engines that can produce the same or more horsepower, but they are twice the weight. The result of the engine’s redesign is faster acceleration. That translates into more responsiveness and better maneuverability.
