Transition of Power

Performance and efficiency are the driving forces behind the next generation of marine engines.

Caterpillar
Bluewater enthusiasts will welcome the power and performance of Caterpillar's new 1,001 hp C18 ACERT diesel inboards. With 1,106 cubic inches of displacement, this turbocharged in-line six-cylinder beast will push large convertibles to the offshore grounds and back with ease. The C18 has a titanium-plate heat exchanger, corrosion-resistant aftercooler core and a water-cooled exhaust manifold. It is electronically governed, and engine speed is rated at 2,300 rpm. The adjustable front-support mounting system and damper minimize vibration. Routine maintenance is made easier with the built-in wiring and service tool connector, and the C18 complies with the EPA Tier 2 requirements.
