ZF Marine Introduces ZF 9000 Series

Tuesday, April 07, 2009

The new ZF 9000 Series transmissions from ZF Marine are the latest in a long history of industry leading marine transmissions designed to handle the demands of high-power engines.  With its design flexibility, the ZF 9000 Series is suited for any vessel – including patrol craft, fast ferries, and luxury yachts – that require compact, lightweight, high-performance propulsion.

The series is available in several configurations, including parallel offset (vertical or horizontal), down-angle, and V-drive, and offers ratios of approximately 1.5 to 5.2. The 9000 series is available with accessories such as trailing pumps and Power Take-Offs (PTO). Some models have optional Power Take-Ins (PTI) to take advantage of ZF Marine’s Hybrid technology.  This enables a vessel to carry out extensive duties using only an auxiliary power source, extending operating range, reducing emissions, and improving fuel economy.

The first production ZF 9000 Series models for North America will be installed in, a 170 ft luxury yacht from Palmer Johnson Yachts, and, a 90 ft sportfish boat from American Custom Yachts, both vessels will be powered by twin16V4000 MTU engines producing approximately 4500 bhp each.

ZF Marine LLC is a member of the ZF Marine Group, headquartered at ZF Padova SpA Italy.
