Piezo controlled common rail injection system delivers 250ps and 50kg · m torque from the 3.0 liter V6 Common Rail Direct Injection (CRDI) engine. Advanced design also makes it ultra light, quiet and fuel efficient with its dimensions extremely compact.

Durability and Reliability

Advantageous is the use of Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) for the cylinder block. The CGI block is lighter and quieter than conventional grey cast iron and demonstrates at least 80 percent higher tensile strength, 45 percent higher stiffness and approximately double the fatigue strength of iron and aluminium. It lasts longer than anyone of us ever expected. It is the source of innovation and improve- ment in the marine engine industry.
