Rolls-Royce offers new MTU propulsion and bridge solutions for yachts
Rolls-Royce is launching new MTU propulsion systems and bridge solutions for yachts onto the market and enhancing its portfolio of technical services with the addition of a new Yacht Competence Centre. IMO III propulsion systems covering MTU series 4000 engines in a power range between 2,830 and 3,900 kW are already available for delivery and as of 2021 for series 2000 engines with outputs from 1,270 to 1,940 kW. A large yacht built by the Bilgin Yachts shipyard in Turkey as other yachts have been fitted with the new propulsion system.
As of 2020, Rolls-Royce will gradually introduce a range of completely integrated and modular MTU hybrid marine propulsion systems for production yachts with a power range extending from approximately 1,000 kW to 4,000 kW per powertrain. Rolls-Royce is now also offering integrated bridge solutions – MTU SmartBridge – for both series production yachts and mega yachts.
Rolls-Royce will be showcasing the new propulsion systems, in addition to MTU service and bridge solutions for motor yachts, at the Yachting Festival in Cannes from 10 to 15 September on Stand Jetée 179 and at the Monaco Yacht Show from 25 to 28 September at Quai Chitane-on Stand QC9.
