Rolls-Royce is showcasing MTU’s latest propulsion technology and service solutions for sailing and motor yachts at the 2016 yacht shows in Cannes, Genoa and Monaco.

One of the highlights will be the new 10-cylinder version of the MTU Series 2000 M96 engine. At the Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes, taking place from September 6 to 11, the new yacht engine will be unveiled for the first time on MTU’s JETEE173 stand.

The engine will also be presented in Genoa at the Salone Nautico on Stand D3. From September 28 to October 1, the MTU propulsion solutions for megayachts will be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show.

IMO Tier III compatible Series 4000 engines will be exhibited on the MTU stand in addition to a model of MTU’s 20V Series 4000 M93 engine. Centre stage at all three shows will be the company’s Premium Yacht Service.

New 10-cylinder for yachts

The focus at the Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes and the Salone Nautico in Genoa will be on the new cylinder version of the MTU Series 2000 M96 engine.

“With the launch of MTU’s s 10V Series 2000 M96 engine, the company is continuing a long tradition of building reliable and efficient high-performance engines for yachts. Our sales expectations for the 12V and 16V versions of this engine type in the 1,268 to 1,939 kW power range this year were significantly exceeded – we are now offering a 10 cylinder version with outputs above 1,015 kW,” Knut Müller, Head of the Marine and Government Business Division at MTU, said.

The MTU engine meets US EPA Marine Tier 3 Recreational standards in addition to EU Directive RCD II for leisure craft, which becomes mandatory from January 2017.

MTU propulsion systems for megayachts

At the Monaco Yacht Show MTU will also be showing the latest generation of the MTU Series 4000 engines, which meet IMO Tier III emission standards, in addition to a model of the 20V Series 4000 M93 engine.

The first IMO Tier III compatible yacht propulsion system, consisting of two MTU 16V Series 4000 M73R engines, is to be installed in a new 80.1 metre long megayacht, which is currently being built by the Bilgin Yachts shipyard in Istanbul. Its delivery is scheduled for 2019.

MTU supplies propulsion systems for yachts and complete system engineering solutions from a single source. Shipyards are frequently supplied with an MTU system consisting of an engine and transmission unit with optimally synchronised interfaces that is monitored and controlled completely by the MTU automation system.

For yachts, in addition to the main propulsion engines and transmission systems in the power range extending from 261 to 4,300 kW, MTU also offers gensets for the yacht’s on-board power supply with rated outputs of up to 280, in addition to gensets for the emergency power supply.
