MAN Engines completed the certification of its range of diesels for yacht applications for major emissions standards worldwide, including EPA Tier 3, China Marine Recreational Stage 2, IMO Tier 2 and RCD 2013/53/EC (EU Recreational Craft Directive).

The latest homologation obtained is for China Marine Recreational Stage 2 standards (with limit values of 5.8 g/kWh NOx and 0.12 g/kWh particulate matter) and covers MAN’s twelve-, eight- and six-cylinder engines that also satisfy the limit values of the EU and the USA.

The China Marine Recreational Stage 2 engine emission standard comes into force on 1 July 2022. “Customers who decide today in favour of MAN Engines are certainly investing in the future!” said Claus Benzler, head of Marine MAN Engines. The company added that with this last homologation step, shipyards and yacht builders choosing MAN Engines can offer their products in sales markets throughout the world, while owners can have maximum flexibility in the use and resale of their boats.

MAN yacht engines are available in the range 12.4 to 24.2-L displacement, with power ratings from 537 to 1 397 kW (730 to 2 000 HP).
