Malibu Monsoon Engines

Award-Winning Performance, Unmatched Reliability

The new Malibu Monsoon line of engines, the M5Di, M6Di, and the LT4, were developed by Malibu to offer unmatched performance, fuel economy, reliability and sound reduction.

Malibu was able to accomplish this feat by bringing engine production in-house. The engine experts at Malibu worked with industry leaders like GM® Marine, Roush®, Davinci®, and McLaren Engineering® to design and perform the research and development necessary to introduce a line of in-board engines to the towboat industry like no other.

The new M5Di, M6Di, and LT4 direct injection engines are only available in a Malibu. Contact your local dealer to experience the next generation of power today.

Malibu Monsoon LT4

Big. Bold. Malibu.

Only Malibu

The Malibu Monsoon LT4 was specifically designed to give you an engine that is easier to maintain, service and operate. Give your boat the power it deserves.

Unmatched Reliability

With over 4,000 hours of durability testing in multiple water conditions and extreme altitudes, we are proud to provide you with proven reliability.

Clean Machine

The Malibu Monsoon LT4 is the only CARB 4-Star rated engine over 500 HP (& we did it at 607 HP) making it the cleanest high-powered engine in the industry.

CARB 4 Star Engine

Powered by Official World Games Towboat

Our close partnership with GM Marine and adherence to the strictest industry standards, the Malibu Monsoon engines are produced in Malibu’s new state-of-the-art engine facility where every boat and engine are water tested.


More power, more fun. With 607 HP, let your engine do the hard work so you can sit back and enjoy the action behind the boat.

Maximizing Power and Efficiency

M5Di // M6Di

Next Generation Engines

Simply Innovative

The Malibu Monsoon engines were uniquely designed with essential engine components moved toward the front to make maintenance more accessible, offer a quieter ride, and improve durability.

Direct Injection

Technology is the key behind our new ultra-clean engines. It all starts with direct injection, which bypasses the air intake manifold and injects fuel directly into the combustion chamber, making for a cleaner, more controlled and complete burn resulting in improved fuel economy.

Going Green

The M5Di and M6Di engines meet the highest level of emissions standards—meaning they come with CARB’s “Ultra Clean” 5-Star rating and emit the lowest emissions of any engine in the industry which Malibu knew would be critical in the world’s best-selling towboats.

Powered by Official World Games Towboat

Thanks to a close partnership with GM Marine and following the strictest industry standards, the Malibu Monsoon engines are produced in Malibu’s new state-of-the-art engine facility located adjacent to the boat production facility in Tennessee where every boat and engine are water tested.

Why FeAD®

The custom cast, patent-pending front-end accessory drive (FeAD) features a fully integrated cooling system where engine oil and transmission fluid temperatures are controlled in a single integrated system that uses an environmentally friendly coolant instead of raw water.

Performance at its Core

Award-Winning Design

Malibu engineers and partners spent thousands of hours designing, 3D-printing and testing over 200 custom parts to make what will set the new standard for inboard engines.

Award-Winning Design

The engines themselves along with key components like the custom manifolds, have already been lauded with awards.

Lowest Emissions

The M5Di and M6Di both received the highest rating the California Air Resources Board (CARB) offers, “Ultra Clean” 5-Star rating, which exceeds the EPA standard.

Lowest Emissions

In fact, these engines not only met the levels required for this certification but exceeded them making them the lowest emission engines in the towboat industry.

Exceptional Quality

Backed by the World’s largest towboat manufacturer, the Malibu Monsoon engines quality began during the marinization process and continued through the manufacturing process.

Exceptional Quality

Utilizing the state-of-the-art methods like smart tools, these engines are tested not only on dynos, but have benefitted from thousands of hours of in-boat testing.

Powerful & Efficient

The Malibu Monsoon line of engines were designed to deliver peak torque earlier for water sports, around 3,000 RPMs, for optimal performance & fuel economy.

Powerful & Efficient

Longevity is also ensured from this powerband since the engine doesn’t have to run at higher RPMs.
