    Default Big ol Engines

    I am doing some work that involves big yachts. The rich kind that cost 20,30, 50 million. Today I was at the Fort Lauderdale boat show. Saw these two and went, wow.... The first , I have no idea about. But they sell a bunch.

    The second is 3000 HP Twin Turbo, Twin Supercharge (yes) 12 cylinder CATS. Two of them power a 145 foot yacht. I guess with all the marble, swimming pools and cars and boats stuffed in these boats they need this kind of power. And they buy 70,000 gallons at a time.

    happy to find a picture of the boat, but the engines are tractor based.

    I was recently involved in the removal and rebuild of a 975 HP Cat engine off of a 600KW generator and I thought that was a big engine but these are even bigger. Beautiful absolutely beautiful.

    We have several 12 cylinder, twin-turbo Waukeshaw engines at work that drive pumps. Not sure what their displacement or hp ratings are, but I've been around when they were being overhauled and each pistion is about 10" in diameter. They are huge engines.
