Make the harbor your playground

Make the harbor your playground

The Cat® Three60 Pod system sets a new standard for propulsion in yachts – and gives the term “pleasure craft” new meaning.

Sun, wind and sea spray: for pure exhilaration, there’s nothing like cruising full-speed out on the open sea. It’s all about freedom and power. But the harbor is a different story. Navigating through such tight, crowded spaces is all about slow speeds, surgical focus and total confidence. Now with the launch of the Cat Three60 Pod system, never before has a propulsion solution offered such a brilliant combination of raw power and slow-speed precision, with the ability to shift seamlessly between the two.

Pleasure-craft owners will love how their boat responds instantly – and faithfully – to their every command. Whether they’re setting off on an early-morning outing or returning to the dock at the end of the day, now they can have just as much fun maneuvering through the harbor as when they’re cutting through blue water.


The Three60 Pod system is a complete, integrated solution consisting of an intuitive control panel, powerful Cat marine propulsion engines, seamless Twin Disc® QuickShift™ transmissions and largest-in-class Cat propellers. The result is a propulsion system that combines fast response, precise slow-speed navigation and smooth shifting for complete, effortless control over the boat’s every move.
