Cummins Vessel References

Cummins Marine Case Studies

Shipbuilders and sailors all over the world depend on Cummins engines and generators to power their vessels. Whether you're on the water for fun, profit, or adventure (or all three), you know that Cummins has you covered.

Esteemed marine authors Alan Haig-Brown and Lisa Overing write the interesting and insightful vessel references listed below, complete with contact information if you want to know more about each installation.

Repair, restoration and renovation of an old vessel is a significant undertaking. The reasons motivating a retrofit vary; however, in the case of Tivua, a 1982 Island Gypsy Europa MK1 retrofit, the impetus for change began in the engine room. “Before, the old engine oozed oil out of every corner,” said Rich Fricke, Tivua’s owner. “And we were so slow, running 7 - 7.5 knots and 6’s when windy. We were so slow that sailboats passed us.” And so the seven year retrofit began on this trawler’s 35th birthday, upgrading every system and appliance, inside and out.
  Atlas, the famed Titan in Greek mythology, is renowned for bearing the world and sky on his shoulders, a punishment inflicted by Zeus on the strongest man in the world. Somewhere near St. Louis, MO, the mortal Atlas, a 65-foot triple screw towboat, is besieged with nearly the same fate in his working life on the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.
Levy Boats needed a reliable, powerful engine to get them through all seasons The colder the water, the better the fish. With no point more than 67 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, commercial fishermen face brutal elements with open sea in Nova Scotia. Fisheries for lobster, halibut and crab already have a limited season imposed by Mother Nature. Workboats employed for commercial fishing need to be up and running 24/7 during warmer months, providing every advantage for crew.
High-speed ferries need powerful engines day-in and day-out With high-transit networks converging on both sides, ferries built for high-speed travel must be well-built, stout and powerful. As a super volume commuter service for tourism operations, the vessel layout, speed, seakeeping ability and interior must be optimized for the mission. Such is the case of M/V Grey Lady IV, a 151-foot aluminum catamaran ferry built by Gladding-Hearn Shipbuilding in 2016. Operated by Hy-Line Cruises, she plies the waters of Nantucket Sound throughout the year.
QSB6.7 propels interdiction vessel Somewhere, just over the horizon, an interdiction vessel is apprehending another criminal enterprise at sea. A great chase begins, frequently ending with Coast Guard Cowboys literally jumping from their rigid-hulled inflatable boat (RHIB) onto some partially submerged submarine, forcing open the hatch for takeover.
Enforcing the law doesn’t just happen on land; it is also essential at sea. With record interdiction using tough, lightweight aluminum patrol boats, the success of the National Security Cutter program at apprehending criminals is remarkable. The 11M Long Range Interceptor II is just such a vessel, designed to pursue high-speed target craft for vessel board and seizure, rescue, and recovery.
