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.
