ZF Technology for Pleasure Craft and Yachts

ZF Transmissions

Transmission ZF 665

The ZF Marine product range for pleasure craft applications includes a wide variety of transmissions for engine outputs of up to 1,400 hp, for all installation configurations – vertical offset, down-angle, coaxial and vee-drive.

While the mechanically operated “M”-series transmissions are typically installed in sailboats and river craft, the larger transmissions are primarily employed in various types of pleasure craft including ski-boats, sportfishing boats, cruisers and luxury motor yachts. A comprehensive range of 2-speed power-shift transmissions is on hand, when optimum acceleration, safety and maneuvrability are determining factors.

ZF Propulsion Control Systems

ZF Marine’s propulsion control systems represent state-of-the-art in electronics technology. The products incorporate well-proven hardware and software to ensure reliability, easy operation, and maintenance. From a comprehensive line of systems the optimum equipment can be chosen to specifically suit the type of vessel or application – single engine, multi-engine or multi-station.

Joystick Maneuvering System (JMS)

The new Joystick Maneuvering System (JMS) developed by ZF Marine is a control system providing the helmsman with simple and intuitive boat control. Interfaced with ZF Marine’s SmartCommand control systems controlling engines in a twin-engine vessel with a traditional shaft-line system, it provides the same ease of control as expected from azimuth pod drive systems.
