Perkins Sabre Offers New Engines

The latest additions of the Perkins Sabre offering are the new M85T, M92 and theM115T, which all continue the tradition of the Perkins Sabre marque by being robustly engineered for reliability and durability, and by offering owners and operators a reasonable cost-of-ownership. The turbo-charged models now start with the new three-liter four-cylinder M85T, which develops its maximum 85 hp at 2,600 rpm. This is followed by the four-liter M115T, which develops 115 hp at 2,400 rpm and, like the M92, is a replacement for the M90/4.236; the most popular Perkins Sabre ever built. Sabre engines manages the Perkins marine business worldwide. The company is also the Perkins Marine Power Center for England, Wales and Ireland and within this territory, the Perkins Sabre range of marine diesel engines is exclusively available from Finning (U.K.).


Perkins Sabre Launches New Commercially-Rated Engines

Subsequent to the recent launching of several new commercially-rated engines, the latest additions to the Perkins Sabre range are the M85T, M92 and M115T. Continuing the tradition of the Perkins Sabre brand through reliability and durability, the engines are all easy-to-install, with straightforward maintenance and extended service intervals. At the lower end of the power range is a trio of naturally aspirated models - Perkins Sabre M65, M92, M130C and the 4.236/M90


Perkins Sabre Unveils New Engines

Available to boatbuilders, owners and operators throughout the U.S., Perkins Sabre has introduced the newest additions to its 65 to 800-hp marine diesel range. The four-cylinder model M92 is a 4.2 liter, naturally aspirated 92-hp engine, while the 4 liter, turbocharged M115T runs 115-hp at 2,400 rpm. Replacing one of the most renowned and successful Perkins marine engines to date – the company’s naturally aspirated M90/4.236, which has operated in the U.S. for many years.


Perkins Sabre Launches Two New Engines

The latest additions to the Perkins Sabre Engines line were introduced this autumn. The naturally aspirated Perkins Sabre M92 and the turbocharged Perkins Sabre M115T have already established themselves as the fastest selling Perkins Sabre Engines of all time. This is due largely to the fact that both are direct and easily fitted replacements for the Perkins Sabre M90/4.236, a highly successful marine diesel engine.
