New Products: Compact yet powerful, ZF's new ZF 3100. A repower transmission series has been purpose-designed for sport fishing boats, allowing these vessels to achieve maximum speed, acceleration, and low-speed manoeuvrability. The ZF 3100 A repower series delivers a massive power range, from 1,900 to 2,444 HP at 2,300 RPM, and features a lighter, compact design that weighs 108 kilograms (240 lbs) less than comparable products.

In addition to helping sport fishing boats reach maximum speed with incredible handling on the water, the ZF 3100 A is shorter in height and length, allowing owners to install engines lower in the vessel. This frees up space for other components during repowers and new construction.
