Engine: Cummins QSK60 2700hp

Cummins Inc presented a new QSK60 series engine during the 2015 Miami boat show. 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 offering a QSK60 dedicated to this market segment.  The QSK60 is a 16-cylinder engine of 60 liters displacement. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Tier 3 engine features a Modular Common Rail Fuel System, allowing Cummins to reduce nitrogen oxides 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 2000hp and 2700hp.
