You are going to regret the Cat/FPT 12.9 at that horsepower. It amazes me that they don't offer MAN or MTU.

You can get a MAN or MTU, they have built them. There's one on the market for years because no one building a DE wants those engines.

looking good ! Is she going to have a flybridge or tower, or stay standard with the lower helm. I had a look at some of the 46's on their website and they look good

MAN AND MTU service is nonexistent in my area...not to mention I own a considerable share of a CAT dealership....

Local commercial guys adore this engine in every way!

lets not derail this thread on the engine Liquid Lunch...feel free to begin your own thread though.

what engine do you have in your boat?

Incredible boat.


What will you do with her commercial operation or just private use?
