ZF Marine transmissions are employed in various applications
The ZF Sail Drive (SD) offers skippers a highly efficient and comfortable system for motoring while not under sail.
The robust and reliable propulsion system can be matched with a large range of fixed pitch or controllable pitch propeller, moving the vessel powerfully both in forward and reverse.
ZF technology is particularly convincing with its:
ZF Marine 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 our comprehensive line of control systems the optimum equipment can be chosen to suit the specific type of vessel or marine propulsion system (single shaft or multiple shaft system).
A recent collaboration between ZF Services Australia and LOMOcean has resulted in this sixty foot sport fishing boat, Good Newz, becoming the first vessel in the Southern Hemisphere to feature the full suite of ZF marine propulsion systems.
The transmissions and control systems for pleasure craft and yachts are produced in Padova and Arco (Italy). Get an insight here:
