ZF has revealed its latest product, the ZF 3100 A repower transmission series, purpose-designed for sport fishing boats.
The ZF 3100 A repower series delivers a massive power range – from 1,900 to 2,444 horsepower at 2,300 rpm– and features a lighter, compact design that weighs 240 pounds. less than comparable products. In addition to helping sport fishing boats to reach maximum speed with incredible handling on the water, the ZF 3100 A is shorter in height and length, allowing owners to install engines lower in the vessel. This frees up space for other components during repowers and new construction.
According to the company:
“We designed the ZF 3100 A repower series to provide sport fishing boats with a transmission option that takes up less space with less weight, yet still provides incredible power while underway,” said George Lewis, head of product line commercial-fast craft, North/Central America and the Caribbean. “Whether an owner is looking to reclaim space for larger engines or wishes to reduce a boat’s overall weight, this robust, innovative gearbox is an ideal solution to gain greater speed and flexibility.”
The ZF 3100 series uses a 10-degree down angle and common componentry to ZF’s existing 3000 series, enhancing future serviceability and interchangeability. The ZF 3100 A series’ height, length and offset dimensions are 32.22”, 23.7” and 11.9”, respectively. Models available in the series include:
- ZF 3150 A (1901bhp@2300rpm PC)
