2016: Scania’s 1,200 hp V8 – for pure pleasure

Scania launches its most powerful marine engine ever at the Dubai International Boat Show. The compact 16-litre V8 engine delivers 1,200 hp and boasts low weight and unsurpassed fuel economy, allowing for a significantly increased range of operation. Scania’s pleasure-craft engine is based on the company’s modular system, which has been developed over the past 50 years. It guarantees reliability and availability, as well as simplifying service and reducing the need for spare parts. Scania’s V8 engines are well known for their unsurpassed power-to-weight ratios and powerful torque, something that gives boat owners the best acceleration in the class. The new pleasure-craft engine takes these characteristics a step further. The power ranges from 1000 through to 1200 hp.
