Volvo Penta D6-400 is an in-line 6-cylinder, turbo charged, supercharged and after cooled 5.5-liter diesel engine using common-rail fuel injection, double overhead camshafts. This contributes to outstanding torque during acceleration. Available on sterndrive only.
Immediate response and high performance is matched by lower amounts of noise and vibrations further reduced by the balance shaft and the optimized engine suspension
COMPACT & ROBUST
The engine is extremely compact for its large swept volume. The rigid cast-iron cylinder block and cylinder head, balance shaft, and exactly controlled fuel injection gives excellent onboard comfort.
UNIQUE MARINE TORQUE
Volvo Penta engines excel with their unique marine torque. High torque at low rpm gives rapid acceleration to the plane and massive manoeuvring power. Even at high load and high rpm, the torque remains strong to provide efficient cruising speed in all conditions.
LOW FUEL CONSUMPTION
The high-tech fuel injection system helps make the engine highly fuel efficient. The control unit monitors several parameters which reduces the overall fuel consumption.
ELECTRONIC VESSEL CONTROL
Volvo Penta Electronic Vessel Control fully integrates the engines, electronics and the unique set of optional features, such as Single-lever Mode, Cruise Control, Glass Cockpit and more. e-Key is standard.
High capacity charging is standard. The 14V / 115A or 28V / 80A alternator has an electronic sensor which enables a higher battery capacity. Even at idle speed, the alternator gives more than 35A, and at cruising speed it delivers approx. 100A at 12V
The engine is fitted with freshwater cooling as standard. This reduces internal corrosion and enables the engine to maintain a consistent and optimal working temperature under all conditions.
LONG SERVICE LIFE
A propulsion system from Volvo Penta is easy to maintain. Our comprehensive range of high-quality oil, lubrication and coolant ensures uptime and top performance in the long term. Accessories include a fuel pre-filter to keep the engine in good condition.
For the first 2 years, the warranty covers the complete engine package and for the following 3 years, major components. Accessories bought simultaneously with engines will also benefit from an extended warranty period. Extended coverage available for full 5 years at additional cost.
