History, Technology and Reliability

VM Motori, founded in 1947, is one of the few companies in the world to exclusively design and produce diesel engines at its plant in Cento (Italy). Major investments in R&D, together with the use of modern technology, put VM at the forefront of marine applications.

The current engine range is the result of our philosophy of producing high performance engines in respect of the most severe emissions limits. VM Motori is able to guarantee a high level of reliability thanks to the exhaustive tests which all engines are put through at our plant in Cento (Italy).

Final sign-off of the engines is only given once the engines have been tested on the open water. These tests serve to ensure security and functionality on board and are much appreciated by our customers.
