John Deere Power Systems announced its new 410 kW (550-hp) recreational vessel rating for the 6090SFM75 marine engine.

The PowerTech 6090SFM75 recreational rating joins the 6068SFM75 298 kW (400-hp) and 6135SFM75 559 kW (750-hp) recreational ratings to offer customers a complete lineup of John Deere marine engines that are rated for high-speed recreational craft, such as sportfishing boats and planing hull yachts.

This new engine rating is set to hit the water in November as an addition to the current 6090SFM75 242 kW to 373 kW (325-hp to 500-hp) power options. It meets EPA Tier 2 and EU emissions requirements and is Marpol Annex VI compliant, the company said.

“We have taken some extra time to introduce this new 550-hp rating for the 9.0L marine engine to make sure that we’ll maintain the legendary reliability and durability for which John Deere engines are known. With a 550-hp 9.0L class engine, we have given our customers what they’ve been asking for — competitive power and John Deere toughness,” John Deere marine marketing manager Dave Flaherty said in a statement.
