History, still in the making

Backed by over 100 years of marine experience, the first generation of the D4 and D6 engines came off the production line in the Swedish town of Vara in 2003. It was yet another example of groundbreaking engineering, sprung from our unique marine heritage. Since then, 100.000 D4 and D6 engines have been proven in use around the world, developed solely for marine purposes and with our trademark torque.

Prop to helm upgrades

The new generation brings you more power, comfort, and reliability than ever before.

Power and performance

You will feel the difference

One of the things that impress the most about the new generation is its unique combination of power and performance. Up to 10% more power has been added to the engine range, giving you that extra punch. The new common rail fuel injection system features higher pressure and more precise injection to offer more fuel efficiency, improving the cruising range of your boat.

Easy boating at its very best

Comfort and maneuvering

Easy boating at its very best

The new D4/D6 propulsion package offers a more enjoyable boating experience, including reduced noise, vibrations, and unparalleled easy maneuvering at low speeds. For instance, the new DPI drive for Aquamatic is equipped with silent shift, which significantly enhances onboard comfort when maneuvering at low speeds. The DPI drive also enables the Dynamic Positioning System; that with the push of a button makes your boat automatically remain stationary. Stay in control, all the time.

Proven. Precise. Perfected.

Proven. Precise. Perfected.

We’ve made significant investments, both in resources and equipment, including more than 300.000 engineering hours, 40.000 hours of hard testing in rigs and boats, and upgrades in machining and production line technology. It’s all in the details. Ensuring precision and endurance in every gear, shaft, bearing, screw, and nut was a necessity.

The final assembly of the D4/D6 package is a vital part of the life of the product; here is where precision is critical. The drive assembly is made at our top of the line facility in Köping, where we carry out the finalization in a clean-room environment, with high precision, and with Swedish produced steel.

The engines are produced in a highly advanced facility in Vara, Sweden that ensures a 100% CO2 neutral production process. Our facility in Vara was the first example of a CO2 neutral production facility within the Volvo Group.
