You Want  To Live The Wake Life. All Day. And We Want  To Help You Do That.
With Propulsion Technology That Shreds All The Rest.


ZF Marine’s 48IV and 68IV transmissions are specifically designed for extreme watersports.

ZF Marine’s new 48IV and 68IV transmissions meet the increasing power ratings and heavy loads of today’s watersports boats, and are upgraded to the demands of the watersports duty cycle. The evolution of watersports from water skiing to wakeboarding, and now wakesurfing, has significantly increased the demands expected from today’s propulsion systems. Bottom line, you’re looking for the largest wake possible.
