Their 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.

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, MTU began building yacht engines in the 1930s based on these powerful airship motors. Their aspiration to create high-performance engines that are renowned the world over still remains today.
