High Performance Propulsion Engines

Industry-leading technology allows Caterpillar to create the most reliable commercial engines for a variety of applications. From tugs and container vessels to yachts and sport fishers, Cat and MaK engines have demonstrated their efficiency countless times. With remarkable reliability and durability, these engines will exceed your expectations for decades.

Cat C32 ACERT High Performance Marine Propulsion Engine (Tier 3 Rec)

C32 ACERT propulsion engine ratings of 1925 mhp (1900 bhp) 1417 bkW, 1825 mhp (1800 bhp) 1342 bkW, and 1622 mhp (1600 bhp) 1193 bkW are available with heat exchanger cooling. These ratings are compliant for U.S. EPA Tier 3 Recreational, EU Stage IIIA, and IMO II. The 1600 and 1800 bhp ratings are also meet US EPA Tier 3 Commercial Standards. The engine configuration includes an air cleaner and CCV system as well as jacket water aftercooling. Additional features include a “plug-in PTO”, an MECP I control panel, and hybrid fuel lines. The MECP I panel has a monochrome display for engine parameters, external outputs for customer installed visible and audible alarms, Start/Stop buttons, and an Off/Local/Remote switch.
