Cat C9 ACERT Engines with Zeus® Pod Drive System: Where Power Meets Maneuverability

Cat C9 ACERT Engines with Zeus Pod DrivesThe engineering of the Cat C9 ACERT engine together with the Zeus® Pod Drive System fulfills the customer's desire for enhanced safety and maneuverability, resulting in a more enjoyable boating experience.

What our customers are saying:

  • Excellent technology: easy to learn and move!
  • Very good. Simple installation and maneuverability
  • I like the skyhook system better than the competitors

The first class joystick control system is amazingly intuitive, operated with a single turn of the wrist. At the dock or out in the open seas, sideways tracking and turning on the spot is never a problem. Precise one-hand command and maneuverability are clearly unsurpassed.

Caterpillar pleasure craft customers enjoy the following benefits with the new Zeus® Pod Drive System:

  • Clean, quiet, and comfortable. The pod drive system's counter-rotating propellers are mounted on large rubber supports for reduced gear noise and vibration.
  • Enhanced maneuverability. The independent movement of each pod results in exceptional turning efficiency and amazing response.
  • Safer by design. By mounting the pod in a tunnel, most floating debris is deflected downward, away from the propellers.
  • Easy to install. The pod drive system is a complete package, requiring much less installation time compared to regular inboards.
