The complete package from Konrad and Cummins incorporates Konrad drives and Cummins engines.

Sterndrive specialist Konrad Marine formally entered a partnership with diesel engine manufacturer Cummins Marine to jointly offer a complete propulsion package to the commercial, military and recreational maritime markets, a partnershipo announced October 9 at the Workboat Show in New Orleans.
The package combines Cummins’ new QSB 6.7L diesel engines (230-425 hp)and Konrad Series 600 sterndrives to present a full propulsion offering, ultimately providing customers with a simplified, tested option from a single source. Also included are the engine mounts, flywheel coupling, bellhouse adapter, transmission and cooler, direct mount assembly, sterndrive and propellers. Controls, displays, gauges, remote mounted systems and water pickup can be purchased as optional add-on features.
The Cummins 6.7 engine is offered in ratings of 230 MHp at 3,000 ID, 250 MHp at 2,600 HO/HD, 305 MHp at 2,600 HO/MD, 355 MHp at 2,800 ID, 355 MHp at 3,000 HO, and 380 and 425 MHp at 3,000 HO/ID. Konrad sterndrives available though the package are the 620 single prop (up to 20 inches), the 660 high speed dual prop (up to 16 inches) and 680 heavy loads dual prop up to (20 inches).
The offering will be sold primarily through Cummins distributors with help and support from Konrad. The partners will together qualify, configure, sell, install and support customers with regionally tailored sales/service plans.
“Cummins and Konrad have been working together for more than 15 years and have thousands of successful installations to our credit,” said Julie Heifner, Marketing Director, Konrad Marine. “The concept of coupling Cummins engines and Konrad drives is a proven success in each of the diesel market segments including military, commercial, and recreational.”
Though Konrad said a majority of its marine drives already operate with the Cummins B series, the companies believe an official collaboration would put forward a more reliable option, resulting in predefined, tested and approved packages with simplified installations.
“Formalizing our offering and our relationship is great news for our customers – ensuring them the highest level of consistency and efficiency from both factories in manufacturing, pricing, distribution, and support,” Heifner said. “The package is designed to maximize customers’ return for their investment in performance, durability and longevity.”
