Rolls-Royce Spotlights MTU at Miami Yacht Event
Rolls-Royce will be highlighting its MTU Premium Yacht Service along with its recently unveiled MTU Series 2000 M96 pleasure craft engine and Joystick Control System during Yachts Miami Beach, February 11–15, 2016.
Tailored to meet the most demanding customer requirements, MTU’s Premium Yacht Service streamlines the full range of MTU ValueCare products into one customizable, tailor-made package. Show attendees will be able to learn about the suite of dedicated service and support offerings including a best-in-class Extended Propulsion Coverage (EPC) for protection beyond the standard warranty and annual inspections to ensure optimal performance and reliability on the water. MTU also offers complimentary re-commissioning of the engines for the first retail purchaser, which is especially valuable in cases where the owner or captain were not present for the initial engine commissioning.
During the show, MTU will also offer a special discount on EPC packages, complimentary engine inspections, and discounted MTU ValueSpares parts and consumables, when customers register their MTU engines. Full details will be available during the show from booth staff members.
