Rolls-Royce is showing off its latest state-of-the-art propulsion systems and service solutions from MTU for motor and sailing yachts at this year’s yacht shows in Cannes and Monaco. At the Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes, which takes place from 12 to 17 September, MTU will be presenting a new close-toproduction prototype hybrid system based on its 16-cylinder Series 2000 engine on Stand Jetee 179. The focus will also be on models of the Pininfarina bridge components and MTU’s Premium Yacht Service. The latest MTU propulsion solutions for mega yachts will be on display from 27 to 30 September at the Monaco Yacht Show.
Stefan Müller, Head of Application Center Marine & Offshore at MTU, said: “Electric motors and hybrid propulsion systems from MTU will be an important mobility component for marine propulsion systems of the future. MTU offers a proven, series solution, which combines the mechanical and electrical components to provide optimum performance through MTU’s automation system.”
