Konrad Marine is proud to announce the new 600 Series stern drive product line which is taking stern drive technology to a whole new level. Larger gears, up to two times stronger than previous models, provide exceptional durability that can handle higher torque inputs than other stern drives. The 600 Series is rated up to 1200 Nm (885 lb. ft.) of torque and can handle propellers as large as 20 inches in diameter.

Konrad stern drives are the hardest working, longest lasting, toughest stern drives/  outdrives ever made.  If you're looking for a stern drive that will give you performance and quality you demand then Konrad is your answer. Since 1991, Konrad has been hard at work, worldwide, with proven reliability, strength, and performance.

"Our objective is to have the toughest stern drive on the market, and I am convinced we do," says owner Ken Konrad.

Konrad's 600 Series includes three models, each with several options enabling you to customize a stern drive to meet your needs. The 620 package is designed for lighter, single prop applications. For higher speed diesel applications, the Konrad 660s will provide outstanding performance and dependability with their twin 16-inch propellers. The 680 is our strongest drive yet, with carrying capacities up to 15,000 lbs., designed to carry the loads of large cruisers and work boats with its 20 inch propeller sets.

"Knowing the reputation that Konrad has for building robust products and having directly participated in the assembly of a drive at the Konrad factory, I would expect the 600 Series to be more than up to the challenge of any task it is asked to perform" comments Eric Colby, Marine Journalist.

Konrad's 600 Series stern drives are engineered with Harmonically Tuned Gear Train (HTGT) technology, which optimizes the balance of the drives, providing significantly longer life to all components and a smoother running system. It enhances the performance, durability and reliability of the drives by minimizing drive vibrations and improving overall synchronization of internal components. This unique design feature is exclusive to the Konrad 600 Series and is so advanced that no other drive in its class offers anything comparable.
