    Hello!

    Can anyone help me with some literature or references on marine diesel engine prices relatet to power output? Let's say $/kW.

    Thank You in advance!

    To obtain serious answers you have to add at least the power range you are looking for. Other important considerations are rpm and type of injection.

    Only thing I know is the range... 300-3000 kW.

    Recent quote for medium speed (less than 1000 RPM) 32cm bore turbo engine package (true marine diesels) in the 3000kW output range;
    - Euro 350 per kW for the inline engines
    - Euro 300 per kW for the Vee versions

    if you go for higher speed (more than 1000 RPM) and less output the ratio will be less - perhaps by a factor as much as 1.6.

    OOO Ya, Christ the last two Volvos 3cyl. 29hp with hurth transmissions I installed in customers boats were over the $10,000 range each. This is not to knock Volvo'S prices as all the manufacturers seem to be in the same range.Be nice to see a price comparison listed on a thread here on the forum which might create a price war and realistic prices.

    Smaller engines are cost less on a $/kw basis than big engines. It isn't the same, you need to narrow your range.
