The MaK line of heavy fuel oil, marine diesel, gas and dual fuel engines is used in a wide variety of marine applications. In the medium speed propulsion MaK is one of the top engine brands. MaK engines, based on a long-stroke philosophy to improve fuel consumption and exhaust emissions, are also capable of running on economical Heavy Fuel Oil. The MaK product line offers main propulsion engines from 1,020 kW to 16,000 kW, and generator sets from 970 kWe to 15,360 kWe. Because of these factors, the MaK brand holds significant importance for customers in the cruise, ferry, cargo, inland waterway, offshore, tug and salvage, fishing, governmental, and dredge segments.

The distribution channel for MaK product and product support is through a small number of MaK dealers, all of which except one are owned by Cat dealer principals. The exception is APD where all MaK sales and product support are handled directly by the Caterpillar Marine Power Systems-owned MaK dealership based in Shanghai and Singapore.

For engineers, architects, builders, and owners of ocean-going and commercial marine vessels worldwide, the MaK brand is a premium engine that marries outstanding reliability, performance, and customer support for superior life cycle value. Exceptionally engineered, innovative products, combined with our 'anywhere, anytime' product support, provide confidence and peace of mind for our customers by ensuring maximum uptime and productivity. With a focus on understanding customer needs, then designing and manufacturing the very best diesel engines to fulfill those needs, MaK enjoys uncommonly strong customer relationships.

Key attributes of the MaK brand are excellent product durability, superior reliability, superior operating costs and a thorough understanding of customer needs.

Note: Engines built by Caterpillar Motoren in Germany for petroleum offshore drilling applications are now marketed under the Cat brand and no longer under the MaK brand.
