FPT Industrial participates in the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show
FPT Industrial is present at the 2014 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show from October 30 to 3 November with its American dealers MSHS and Cascade.
The North American market has been predominant for FPT’s activities in 2014, resulting in important commercial agreements and in race successes.
In February, the agreement through FPT Industrial’s long-standing dealer MSHS has resulted in globally-renowned boat builder and yacht service provider Hinckley being repowered with FPT Industrial engines. Thanks to the adoption of the N67 570 engine, the leader in its category for weight/power, power/displacement and volume/power ratios, the Hinckley Talaria 44 MKII yacht has considerably increased its performance.
In April, FPT Industrial extended the reach of its marine range across the U.S. and Canada thanks to an agreement with Cascade Engine Center LLC for the distribution of its state-of-the-art Tier 3 engines in Western North America (Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming) and British Columbia, Canada.
As of race successes, the outstanding reliability and high performance of FPT’s engines are illustrated by the recent winnings in lobster boat tournaments along the Maine coast. The vessels, equipped by N67 560, C13 770 and C13 825 engines, won almost all the acceleration and maximum speed races, demonstrating the excellent performance of these solutions in the application of professional fishing boats.
Thanks to their outstanding quality, reduced fuel consumption and compliance with international emission standards, FPT’s engines are chosen by many OEMs and engine producers on a world-wide basis, such as Caterpillar, which adopts the C90 and C13 units as base engines for the production of its own Cat® C8.7 and Cat® C12.9 engines.
FPT Industrial is present in the North American market with its dealers’ network and a dedicated commercial structure in Burr Ridge, Illinois, where the Company also runs a Research and Development Centre developing and customizing engines to further address the requirements of the US market.
FPT Industrial offers a complete range of engines for pleasure and professional boats that increase the efficiency of the vessels, even in the most demanding conditions, thanks to their specific power and torque at low rpm.
At the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show FPT Industrial is present in the Engine Tent, Booth 1211, with its N67 570 and N67 450 engines for pleasure applications, that both conform with Tier 3 emission regulations.
