Sweden-based Scania entered the U.S. recreational marine market with engines that it said have class-leading power-to-weight ratios.

The common-rail diesels — led by a 6-cylinder, 13-liter model and a 16-liter V-8 — have blocks made of compacted graphite iron and wastegate turbochargers. Scania said in a statement that the design obviates the need for additional turbos and a supercharger.

Both engines (13-liter model shown) have compacted graphite iron blocks and wastegate turbochargers to save weight.

The smaller diesel is available from 700 to 900 hp, and the V-8 ranges from 1,000 to 1,150 hp. The power plants are emission-certified, meeting the EPA’s Tier 3 standards.

“With the launch of our new 13- and 16-liter engines, certified for the pleasure-craft market, we now offer our customers in the long-range cruising and sportfishing segments unprecedented power and efficiency,” said Scania USA Marine sales manager Al Alcalá in the statement.”

Scania also will roll out its proprietary Smart Support — a logistics system with a network of service providers that strives for 98 percent parts availability within 24 hours in North America.
