Perkins Marine Power provides a variety of diesel engines for watercraft across the globe. Leading the way with its diesel engine technology for nearly a century, and adding 30 years of speciality marine engine design from Sabre, the company offers engines for both commercial and pleasure boaters. Whether you have a sailboat, river cruiser, powerboat or yacht, Perkins has a collection of marine engines to fit your needs.


The M92B four-cylinder engine is the updated version of the M92. This 4.4-litre power centre meets EPA standards as set from 2004 and runs quieter than the M92. Designed for your leisure or commercial craft, the M92B provides 86-horse power at 2,400 RPM with an output of 64 kilowatts. The engine is water cooled and naturally aspirated. This direct injection unit features a fresh water heat exchanger engine cooling system with a water-cooled exhaust manifold. The M92B accepts a variety of gearshift designs, giving you flexibility beyond the standard transmission unit. Fuel economy has increased 6 per cent compared to the M92 with service intervals at 500 hours. A two-year warranty covers your M92B, with three years for major engine components.


This turbocharged six-cylinder unit provides 225 horse power with 165.5 kilowatts of electricity when operated at 2,500 RPM. Whether you are installing the engine on a new boat or replacing a current one, this Perkins unit provides mounting flexibility. The M225Ti combustion system, rotary fuel pump, and turbocharger design supply improved fuel efficiency over previous models. An air intake silencer gives you a more quiet boating experience making this engine ideal for leisure craft use. The unit has six litres displacement with water cooled engine and air-cooled turbocharger. Your service interval for recommended oil changes is 400 hours or about once per season under normal usage.


If you are powering a leisure boat or commercial watercraft, the six-cylinder, turbocharged Perkins M300C provides 300 horse power at 2,400 RPM. This engine has electrical output of 225 kilowatts and meets EPA emission standards for its class. You receive more power, increased torque and less noise due to an improved combustion system, turbocharger design, and displacement of 6.6 litres. This unit has electronic engine and automatic cold start control with multi-shot fuel injection. The M300C utilises advanced features providing increased fuel economy and reduced affects from heat. Perkins offers a worldwide service system for the M300C allowing you to electronically order parts through the Internet. Intervals for service are 500 hours and a low usage version of the standard warranty of two years, three years for major engine parts, is available.
