Benefits and Features

IMO II/EPA Tier 3 Compliant Ratings

No seawater circulating through the aftercooling system to prevent corrosion.

Full power & torque are available for a broader operating speed range. For example: With an A rating at 1800 rpm - you have full power from 1500 to 1800 rpm.

A Ratings: 1000 hours, B Ratings: 750 hours, C Ratings: 500 hours

Extensive service network of CAT dealers as well as unparalleled service from certified authorized marine dealers.

Proven engine operating history: performance iron with thousands of hours of validation testing for quality and durability
