Volvo Penta D8-550 is an in-line 6 cylinder, 7.7 litre diesel engine using common-rail fuel injection, double overhead camshafts, a twin-entry turbo, and supercharger. The engine offers excellent manoeuvrability at low speeds, high power-to-weight ratio, and low fuel consumption.
BETTER ONBOARD EXPERIENCE
The common-rail technology means minimal vibrations and low noise levels. The wide rpm range provides smooth handling during both acceleration and cruising.
WORLD CLASS POWER-TO-WEIGHT RATIO
This engine is perfect for applications that require low weight with high power in order to achieve peak performance, often in demanding conditions.
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.
OPTIMISED FUEL CONSUMPTION
The high-tech fuel injection system together with the light and compact dimensions help make the engine highly fuel efficient. The control unit monitors several parameters to reduce 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.
