Perkins Sabre Unveils New Engines

October 5, 1999

Available to boatbuilders, owners and operators throughout the U.S., Perkins Sabre (SABR) 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. With upgraded performance, economy and environmental credentials, both the M92 and the M115T are reportedly quick and straightforward, credited to each engine’s sharing of identical engine mounts and exhaust positions. Extensive trials have shown that both engines are equally appropriate for pleasure and commercial use and offer improved cooling due to their respective water pumps, which is based on the company’s 1000 Series Darwin engine. In addition, an analysis of its competitors performed by Perkins revealed the Sabre 92 as having the lowest fuel and oil consumption. Replacing Perkins’ “workhorse” M90 with the M92 is Silver Line Cruisers of Banagher, Ireland. Known as one of Ireland’s premier fleet companies, the company operates a fleet of cruisers between Lough Ree and Lough Derg. Measuring 37 ft. (11. 3 m), GRP Silver Crown is the first to be repowered in the current Silver Line fleet. The installation upholds a strong tradition at Silver Line, which has resulted in all of the company’s fleet being repowered by Perkins engines.
