ZF Marine POD 4000
If you own or plan on owning a large boat with engines up to 1200-hp, then you need to read this. We recently had a chance to conduct a full test of the ZF POD 4000 series drive system (with joystick) installed on a 76–foot motoryacht where it propelled our 106,000-lb. (48,181-kg.) with a nearly 22' (6.70 m) beam to an impressive top speed of 34.3 mph. Not only that, but the easy joystick maneuvering and docking that we have been experiencing for the last four years on 40-footers is now possible for big motoryachts and convertibles.
