MTU traces its origins to building Maybach engines, which were constructed in Friedrichshafen, Germany, for use in large Zeppelins. After successfully creating engines for aircraft and luxury cars, we began building yacht engines in the 1930s based on these powerful airship motors. Our aspiration to create high-performance engines that are renowned the world over still remains today.
Whatever your plans may be, our engineers will advise you from the very beginning. We support you from the first idea to conception and installation, commissioning and beyond. We can also offer on-board power generators or ship automation systems that are perfectly aligned with your ship.
After launch, you can continue to count on our service: we’re ready to provide local support, worldwide through MTU ValueCare, whenever and wherever you may need us.
MTU is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high performance engines. In the world of motor yachts – characterized by a unique combination of style, luxury, exclusivity, comfort, top performance and speed – we continuously set standards. That’s why it’s no coincidence that MTU engines have earned an unparalleled reputation with shipyards, owners and crews.
MTU yacht engines are the “first among equals”. Their quality and reliability meet the most demanding client’s requirements, making them perfect drive systems for standard yachts, performance yachts, displacement yachts and large luxury and mega yachts.
Our diesel engines, such as the Series 4000 and Series 8000 are extremely powerful and yet still very compact, easy to operate and safe to use. At the same time, their smooth operation allows you to enjoy life on board. The quiet operation and low vibration levels come as a result of over 100 years of tradition and experience that will accompany you along every nautical mile.
Premium power deserves premium service. You should be able to cruise confidently, enjoying every moment along the way. That confidence starts with reliable MTU engines and continues with Premium Yacht Service.
