Viking and ZF Team UP

ZF Marine, the German manufacturer of marine transmissions and associated running gear, has just taken delivery of a new 50-foot Viking convertible equipped with its POD 4000 propulsion system. The boat, shown below, is powered by a pair of 1,150-hp Caterpillar C18 diesels connected to the pods via carbon fiber jack shafts. ZF states that the ZF 4000 are the highest-rated pods on the market.

Initial sea trails indicate speeds in the "40-plus-knot range and impressive fuel burn numbers. along with outstanding maneuverability," says ZF.

You can get a first-hand look at the ZF Viking while it's on her east-coast tour, that includes the Annapolis and Fort Lauderdale boat shows, and follow her on Facebook at www.facebook.com/zfpod4000
