Scania to Power Demo Viking 46


Scania, the Sweden-based engine manufacturer and relative newcomer to the U.S. recreational market, announced that distributor Mack Boring commissioned a 46-foot Viking Billfish as a demo boat fitted with a pair of Scania 900-hp, DI13 diesels.

The common-rail, 6-cylinder, 13-liter engine has a block made of compacted graphite iron and wastegate turbochargers. Scania said the design obviates the need for additional turbos and a supercharger, adding that the engine meets the Environmental Protection Agency’s Tier 3 standards and has an industry-leading power-to-weight ratio.

“When we looked for the best option to introduce the new Scania Marine engines to the recreational market, we were naturally interested in the Viking lineup,” Mack Boring president Patrick McGovern said in a statement. “The 46-foot Billfish will be a perfect match to show the power and performance that Scania is known for.”

Mack Boring said it plans to use the demo boat in East Coast tournaments and other events to showcase the company’s engine options.
