Rolls-Royce to provide engines for Sunseeker yachts

Rolls-Royce and British luxury yacht manufacturer Sunseeker International have agreed to a new general contract for the supply of MTU Series 2000 and Series 4000 engines for a range of yachts, including three new models.

“I am delighted that our long-standing relationship continues with the supply of MTU’s latest and most-advanced engines for fitment across all of our largest models, matched to industry-leading standards of service and support," Sunseeker International CEO Phil Popham said.

The contract, announced at the Southampton Boat Show, will see MTU engines power the new Sunseeker 95, 116 and 131 Yachts. The MTU brand is part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems within the Land & Sea division of Rolls-Royce.

“We are very pleased to have concluded this agreement," MTU U.K. Managing Director Bruce Phillips said. "The signing of the general contract marks another milestone in our successful collaboration with Sunseeker. The yacht market demands continual progress and innovative technologies, and we are delighted that the new Series 2000 M96L engine generation forms part of this new agreement."

The new Series 2000 M96L engine generation delivers improved acceleration and reduced fuel consumption while meeting the strict emission limits of the Environmental Protection Agency Tier 3 standard for leisure craft.
