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.

The newest passenger vessel for Fire Island Ferries, the “Fire Island Maid” is powered by Cummins QSL9's, with electrical power provided by a Cummins Onan MDK generator. The vessel operates primarily from Sayville to the fire island pines, taking passengers on an efficient and comfortable journey.
The San Francisco Bay area is one of the world’s finest ports. Ships from around the world enter the Bay under the Golden Gate Bridge. Depending on their destination, they are likely to pass under at least one more of the Bay’s eight toll bridges. Not only do the bridges help both locals and visitors get to the other side of the Bay, but they also allow multiple ships to pass daily to piers throughout the Bay.
The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government, an indigenous Canadian community on Quebec’s Gaspé Peninsula, has accepted delivery of a new 19.81 by 7.31-meter (65 x24-foot) combination crab trap and groundfish trawler. The vessel was designed by NAVANEX and built by Chantier Naval Forillon, both of Gaspé, Quebec, Canada. Named Ugjit Mijua’ji’jg in the Mi’gmaw language, the name means “For Our Children”, a reference to the optimism that the community has for its continuing role in commercial fishery.
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.
