Scania DI13 Diesel
Scania might not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of marine diesels. But that could well change thanks to a powerful, lightweight and efficient new model showcased in a twin-inboard installation powering the new 46-foot Billfish from Viking Yacht Company. Swedish-based Scania—one of the world’s leading manufacturers of engines for trucks, buses, industrial applications and boats—introduced the DI13 marine diesel to North America earlier this year. That prompted one of the United States distributors for Scania North America, Mack Boring & Parts Co., to put a pair of the 900 hp versions of the DI13 in its new Viking 46BF company boat. Mack Boring christened it Mack 900.
