Dredge: Complete List of Engines

Guide and Tips on Dredge

In Dredge, you have the option to equip your ship with various engines, each with different statistics. Our guide provides a comprehensive list of all available engines along with our recommendations on the best ones to use in order to explore the world map at a faster pace.

Engines are the heart of every ship in Dredge. On this page, we have compiled a list of all available engine variants, including information on how to unlock them and their respective statistics. Furthermore, we have highlighted the best engines to use, which will make sailing easier and allow you to accomplish more within the same timeframe.

  • Peculiar Engine
  • Weak Valve Engine
  • Rusty Outboard Engine
  • Improved Outboard Engine
  • Jet Drive Engine
  • Refined Outboard Engine
  • Twin Prop Engine
  • Twin Jet Drive Engine
  • Engine Stack

Peculiar Engine

  1. Installation Time: 2 hours
  2. Speed: 14kn
  3. Cargo Slots Occupied: 2

This engine is the default option when starting the game. Unfortunately, there isn\’t much to say about it as it makes sailing a tedious task.

Weak Valve Engine

  1. Installation Time: 3 hours
  2. Speed: 18.9kn
  3. Cargo Slots Occupied: 3

You can obtain this engine as loot. It takes up 3 cargo slots, but you can rotate it to fit more loot in the cargo.

Rusty Outboard Engine

  1. Price: $100 – Available at the Shipwright in Greater Marrow
  2. Installation Time: 2 hours
  3. Speed: 10kn
  4. Cargo Slots Occupied: 2

This is the weakest engine that the Shipwright offers. We recommend purchasing it only if you need two working engines for your initial adventures.

Improved Outboard Engine

  1. Research Parts: 1 (Visit the Shipwright after donating the parts)
  2. Price: $200
  3. Installation Time: 2 hours
  4. Speed: 15kn
  5. Cargo Slots Occupied: 2

This engine is one of the weakest that you can install on your ship. Its statistics are similar to the Peculiar Engine.

Jet Drive Engine

  1. Research Parts: 5 (Visit the Shipwright after donating the parts)
  2. Price: $300
  3. Installation Time: 1 hour
  4. Speed: 9kn
  5. Cargo Slots: 1

This engine is a great option as it only takes up 1 cargo slot. You can easily add more engines to your ship to increase its horsepower. For instance, a ship with 4 Jet Drive Engines is more powerful than 2 standard engines that occupy 4 slots (36kn instead of 25 or 35). We recommend saving Research Parts to unlock this engine as soon as possible.

Refined Outboard Engine

  1. Research Parts: 2 (Visit the Shipwright after donating the parts)
  2. Price: $300
  3. Installation Time: 3 hours
  4. Speed: 25kn
  5. Cargo Slots: 4

This engine performs worse than four Jet Drive Engines as it takes up 4 cargo slots. However, it only requires 2 Research Parts to develop.

Twin Propeller Engine

  1. Research Parts Required: 3 (go to the Shipwright after donating the parts)
  2. Price: $450
  3. Installation Time: 4 hours
  4. Speed: 35 knots
  5. Cargo Slots: 4

If you have four free engine slots and don\’t want to spend five Research Parts on the Jet Drive Engine project, the Twin Propeller Engine is a good choice.

Twin Jet Drive Engine

  1. Research Parts Required: 4 (visit a Shipwright after donating the parts)
  2. Price: $500
  3. Installation Time: 5 hours
  4. Speed: 50 knots
  5. Cargo Slots: 5

The Twin Jet Drive Engine is a powerful engine that unfortunately takes up five slots in the cargo hold. However, it is a good choice if combined with the Jet Drive Engine.

Engine Stack

  1. Research Parts Required: 5 (visit a Shipwright after donating the parts)
  2. Price: $750
  3. Installation Time: 6 hours
  4. Speed: 65 knots
  5. Cargo Slots: 5

The Engine Stack is the best engine available in the game. If you have a fully upgraded ship and combine it with two Jet Drive Engines, your boat will be incredibly fast. Despite the high cost, it is worth investing in.

FAQ

What is a dredge engine?

A dredge engine is a type of engine specifically designed to power dredges, which are machines used to remove sediment and debris from bodies of water. These engines are typically diesel-powered and can range in size from small portable engines to larger engines that are mounted on the dredge itself. The engine powers the pump that sucks up sediment and debris from the bottom of the waterway and moves it through a pipeline to a disposal area. The size and power of the engine needed for a dredging project depends on the size of the dredge and the amount of sediment that needs to be removed.

What are the different types of dredge engines?

There are several types of dredge engines, each designed for a specific type of dredging project. Some common types of dredge engines include:

  • Portable diesel engines
  • Trailer-mounted diesel engines
  • Skid-mounted diesel engines
  • Electric-powered engines
  • Hydraulic-powered engines

The type of engine used for a particular project depends on factors such as the size of the dredge, the location of the project, and the amount of sediment that needs to be removed.

How do I choose the right dredge engine?

Choosing the right dredge engine depends on several factors, including the size of the dredge, the type of project, and the location of the project. It is important to choose an engine that is powerful enough to handle the amount of sediment that needs to be removed, but not so powerful that it wastes fuel or causes unnecessary wear and tear on the engine. It is also important to consider factors such as noise levels, emission regulations, and maintenance requirements when choosing a dredge engine. Consulting with a qualified dredging contractor or equipment supplier can help ensure that you choose the right engine for your specific project needs.
