Your passengers can count on you to get them where they’re going on time, every time. Tested and proven, Cat® and MaK™ ferry and cruise ship engines keep your costs low with dual fuel options while maintaining clean, quiet comfort. And with over 2,200 locations globally, support is always close at hand.

We have decades of experience designing engines that set the standard for quality, performance and reliability. And with the world’s broadest power range, Caterpillar has the marine products to keep ferries operating all over the world.

We offer industry-leading power ranges and tested, application-specific products to make sure you get the optimal power for your job.
