Rolls-Royce and British luxury yacht manufacturer Sunseeker International have agreed to a new framework agreement for the supply of MTU Series 2000 and 4000 engines for its 86Y, 95Y, 116Y, 131Y range of yachts and for future yacht series. Under the terms of the agreement, new technologies and systems solutions that MTU launch on the market during the contractual period until the end of 2020 are also to be included.
“We intend to continue the successful working relationship we have enjoyed with MTU in the course of the last 18 years,” said Michael Straughan, Chief Operating Officer of Sunseeker International, “and is why we have now signed a new framework agreement. In MTU, we have an exceptional partner for the introduction of innovative technologies and can look forward to a very positive future together.”
MTU UK has been supplying engines to Sunseeker for many years, installed in Sunseeker models from 60FT (approx. 20 metres) to 155FT (approx. 47 metres).
Knut Müller, Head of MTU Marine and Government Business, said: “We are very pleased to have concluded this new agreement and to continue our good cooperation. Over a period of many, many years the company’s founder Robert Braithwaite has had a major impact on the success of Sunseeker, MTU and the yacht building industry and has been instrumental in developing the market. We at MTU are very grateful and privileged to be part of the ‘Sunseeker family’.” MTU presented an award to Sunseeker for 1.8 million bhp of MTU power installed in Sunseeker yachts in the course of the last 18 years.
