Trackball operation is part of the package. Two MTU Model 93 diesels, a 1200 horsepower V-8 and a 1500 hp V-10 are offered with Bluevision. Intended applications include fast yachts. Mechanical attributes of the MTU V-8 and V-10 marine diesels are a triple walled, liquid cooled exhaust manifold for greater temperature control and noise reduction. Turbocharging is sequential, (boost-more boost-max boost) for razor sharp throttle response and a powerful top end.
