Cummins and Konrad Marine have announced the addition of 480-hp and 550-hp ratings to the diesel sterndrive packages they jointly offer.
The 480-hp rating provides 46 percent more horsepower and 54 percent more torque than other diesel sterndrive products currently available and is approved for both recreational and commercial applications.
The 550-hp rating, on the other hand, is intended solely for recreational applications and offers 162 percent more torque than outboards, more than any other diesel sterndrive offered in the recreational space.
“Today’s announcement reflects how important our marine customers are to us,” said Cummins Marine’s Jim Schacht. “Customers will benefit with access to a single, global team of experts who are focused on enabling their success by addressing all of their propulsion, power and integration needs.”
