    All yacht builders rely on a handful of European engine manufacturers for yacht propulsion solution. Sometimes the agreement or partnership can extend for multiple years and platforms. For example, In Oct 2018 Britain based Sunseeker signed a new framework agreement for the supply of MTU Series 2000 and 4000 engines for its 86Y, 95Y, 116Y, 131Y range of yachts.


    Dual engine propulsion are very common on yachts over 40ft in length but Azimut raised the bar when Azimut S6 was launched in Dec 2019 with triple propulsion Volvo Penta IPS 700 system. The inherent advantages of triple propulsion units are improved fuel efficiency, reducing noise and vibrations.




    Although, much of the market is still captured by Diesel engines, electric propulsion is also catching up thick and fast. For example,

    Jan 2020-Germany based Torqeedo signed an agreement with Netherlands based Waterworld to distribute inboard electric motors in Europe.

    June 2020– New Zealand based waterjet manufacturer Hamilton unveiled its new EHX range, Electro-Hybrid Drive.

    July 2019– Volvo Penta signed a partnership with ABB, and the University of Chalmers to study solutions for rapid charging of dockside vessels

    Sep 2018– MAN debuted V12-2000 and V8-1300 marine engines at the 2018 Cannes Yachting Festival

    June 2018– Volvo Penta unveiled its first adaptive electric hybrid engine on the counter-rotating IPS engines with market launch planned for 2020-2021




    The global yacht engine market is estimated at $XX Million in 2020, growing at 4.1% CAGR till 2025




    Aug 2020: Scania launched two all new marine engines in the US aimed at Cruising yacht market. The two diesel engines have power output of 900hp and 1150 hp respectively


    June 2019– Volvo Penta launched D4 and D6 engines, with 3.7L and 5.5L displacement respectively with power output range of 150-480hp

    Maritimo, an Australian yacht builder, has chosen mtu as the official high-horsepower engine choice for its new flagship yachts, with select future models to follow.


    The deal specifies the mtu brand of engine from Rolls-Royce Power Systems as the exclusive engine choice for Maritimo engines ranging from 1200 to 1625 horsepower. The first mtu-powered watercraft will be on the water, according to Maritimo.


    Various mtu engine options, with ZF gears, mtu control systems, mtu joystick, and position hold options will be available in the M75 Flybridge, S75 Sedan, and M600 & S600 Offshore variants, which will be represented locally by Penske Australia & New Zealand.


    Because both businesses have comparable values in terms of the items they produce, which are of extremely high quality, highly functional, and dependable, and are backed up by exceptional customer care and service.


    The mtu engine option from Maritimo provides owners with a purpose-built marine power unit as well as real-time back-to-base monitoring service from anywhere on the planet.


    The mtu engines are all constantly rated, offering Maritimo owners the opportunity to operate at 100% load at any moment, delivering additional power and torque.


    It discovered a common ground with the brand and their shared goal of minimising the cost of ownership over time. Over and above the original purchase, mtu delivers considerable benefits in terms of efficiency and maintenance expenses.


    The way Maritimo and mtu both aspire to build engineering with built-in simplicity, producing greater ease of use and a more joyful ownership experience, further aligns the two firms’ main purpose. Penske Australia & New Zealand, with its network of 16 strategically situated branches and remote field service locations, will deliver the engine packages.
