New Pleasure Craft Rating for Cat C32 ACERT Marine Engine

Posted on February 12, 2009

Caterpillar will present a new high-performance rating for its C32 ACERT engine model used in pleasure craft applications such as cruising yachts, performance yachts and sport fishing boats at this year’s Miami International Boat Show. The Cat C32 ACERT is a 32 L, Vee-type, 12-cylinder, four-stroke marine diesel with a 145 mm bore and 162 mm stroke. With its new EPA Tier 2-compliant E-rating, it provides 1417 kW at 2300 r/min. The new engine has 15 percent more power than the former C32 version without ACERT technology. It offers the latest Mechanically actuated Electronically controlled Unit Injection (MEUI) fuel system, Caterpillar’s latest ADEM A4 Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and twin turbo-charging and after cooling.

Like all smaller C-series marine engines from C7 through C32, the new model is manufactured in Caterpillar’s Marine Center of Excellence (MCOE) in Greenville, South Carolina, U.S.A. At the MCOE, marine personnel including desing engineers, application and installation engineers and customer support staff work together building complete products and controlling all aspects of the manufacturing process to ensure the highest quality standards, according to Cat.
