Cruise ships and passenger vessels are the unchallenged sovereigns of the seas. These are the elegant, majestic and migh ty giants that cross the oceans.

The top priority is thus an engine with low noise, vibration and emission levels. The source of this power is calm strength with the VM 43 C quietly at work in the background.
