Do you remember the record-breaking FPT Industrial diesel engine that in 2018 raced at 277.5 km/h on Lake Como with “design wizard” Fabio Buzzi? Well, that engine is not only a racing “prototype”, but it is part of the FPT Industrial family for the pleasure boating industry that includes models from 85 hp to 1,000 hp. Here are three of the main models of FPT Industrial.
This is the standard version of record-breaking C16. The C16 1000 has been designed especially for pleasure craft (yachts and mega yachts) and lightness is one of the strenghts of this engines. It has the compactness of a 13-litre engine with the robustness of a 16-litre engine. It develops a maximum power of 1,000 hp at 2,300 rpm which, combined with its small size, makes this engine very good in weight/power ratio (0.59 hp/kg). These characteristics, translated into performance, say higher cruising speed and higher top speed, as well as a better response to transients in glide.

C90 650 EVO
This FPT Industrial engine is the result of improvements to a previous model. This engine has higher maximum torque, faster response for better glide, and reduced fuel consumption. Aesthetically, it installs new components and layouts that simplify maintenance. With a displacement of 8.7 liters, it has the latest generation of Common Rail, an in-line 6-cylinder architecture and can deliver a maximum power of 650 hp at 2,530 rpm. The engine is designed for low environmental impact, reduced noise, vibration and exhaust emissions.

N67 570 EVO
An engine that has made history in racing, for example at the Cowes-Torquay-Cowes in 2008 with Fabio Buzzi (with the former Cesa) and the Cork-Fastnet-Cork in 2018. Combining high performance with a light and compact design, it is a 6.7 litre engine that delivers 570 hp at 3,000 rpm, with a maximum torque of 1,551 Nm at 2,000 rpm, ensuring maximum performance for fast and light planing boats. The use of advanced technologies ensures reliability and compliance with the strictest environmental certifications for the marine industry.
