ZF Transmissions


Pleasure Craft/Sailboats

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 V-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, sport fishing boats, cruisers and luxury motor yachts. A comprehensive range of 2-speed power-shift transmissions is on hand, when optimum acceleration, safety and maneuverability are determining factors.

Commercial/Fast Craft

ZF Marine transmissions, rated up to 14,000 kW, are available in many configurations. For all kinds of commercial vessels, ZF provides a complete line of heavy-duty transmissions. Gearbox housings are extremely resistant to torsional stresses and are generously sized to safely transmit the thrust loads to the ship's foundation. Numerous ratios are available that perfectly match today's medium-speed diesel engines. For commercial, ocean-going vessels such as freighters and tankers, heavy-duty transmissions with various PTOs and PTIs can be chosen.
