Rolls-Royce and British luxury yacht manufacturer Sunseeker International have signed a new frame agreement for the supply of MTU yacht engines. The contract, signed during the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, runs until the end of 2022 and covers a total of over 90 MTU Series 2000 V10, V12 and V16 engines as well as V8 and V12 configurations of the Series 4000.

The engines offer power outputs ranging between 1015 kW (1,380hp) and 2340 kW (3,182 hp). The engines will power a wide range of yacht models in the 25 meters (75ft+) category. An initial Sunseeker 161 yacht was presented at the boat show in Cannes and has already been sold. New propulsion technologies are also to be used, including an MTU hybrid engine for the Sunseeker 133. This modular propulsion system is being developed by Rolls-Royce in close collaboration with Sunseeker.

“We are pleased to be entering into another frame agreement with Rolls-Royce. We aim to double our yacht portfolio over the next few years, and intend to include new technologies. Rolls-Royce is an excellent partner for this undertaking. Our long-standing, successful partnership is proof-positive of this,” said Andrea Frabetti, Chief Operating Officer of Sunseeker.

For over 18 years Rolls-Royce has been supplying Sunseeker with engines to power yachts between 20 and 47 meters in length. “Sunseeker has already installed over 1.8 million horsepower of MTU technology in its yachts. We are proud to continue our winning partnership with this renowned yacht builder,” said Denise Kurtulus, Head of Marine & Offshore at Rolls- Royce Power Systems.
