CHARLESTON, S.C. (Feb. 12, 2015) – Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI) is promoting the QSK Series engines for large-displacement and semi-displacement yachts at the Feb. 12-16 Miami International Boat Show. Cummins serves all segments of the marine market, with propulsion and auxiliary engines from 3.9 to 95 liters displacement and marine generators from 5 kW to 1250 kW. By including the QSK60 in its booth, Cummins highlights its broad product offering for the recreational marine market.
The QSK series, which includes the QSK95, QSK60, QSK50, QSK38 and QSK19, has had a long, successful history of delivering great performance and durability in tugboats, crew boats and offshore supply vessels. The QSK series of engines is also used in recreational displacement and semi-displacement vessels. In response to increased demand from the recreational market, Cummins is displaying the QSK60 in its booth at the Miami International Boat Show.
“Cummins has many years of experience with our QSK engines in demanding commercial workboats, and we are now displaying the QSK60 engine in this recreational show to demonstrate the breadth of Cummins Marine,” said Scott Malindzak, General Manager – Recreational and Light Commercial Marine. “We expect that some recreational customers may appreciate the robust attributes of this product line.”
The QSK60 is a 16-cylinder engine of 60 liters displacement. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 3 engine features a Modular Common Rail Fuel System (MCRS), allowing Cummins to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter in-cylinder. Other benefits of the MCRS include low noise and vibration for quiet operation, idle stability and improved low-end torque. The QSK60 has ratings between 2000 hp (1491 kW) and 2700 hp (2013 kW).
