gplink is happy to announce a partnership with ZF Marine and an exciting public demonstration of both the ZF POD 4000 and our satellite monitoring interface.

ZF POD 4000This Viking Yacht 50C is a demonstration boat built by ZF to showcase the new ZF POD 4000 Drive System. This new propulsion system is suitable for large yachts powered by engines up to 1200 hp and comprises a standard transmission mounted to a steerable pod unit with twin, counter-rotating propellers. The gplink hardware was installed at the Viking factory in cooperation with Ransome Caterpillar, our authorized dealer for New Jersey.

ZF POD 4000 VesselThis is a rare, interactive opportunity for the general public to see the core features available with the gplink service. For privacy reasons, the demo does not include notifications, login and other private settings that are typically available to our users. The gplink system is a state of the art satellite tracking system with highly intergrated engine diagnostics and we’re pleased to be able to share this public demo opportunity with you.
