Scania-Powered Viking 48 Convertible Is In Production

New Vessel to Showcase Performance and Efficiency of Twin 1,150 HP DI16-Liter Scania V8 Engines

San Antonio, TX – Scania, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of engines, announced that a new, Viking 48 Convertible will be powered by twin Scania 1,150 HP DI16-liter V8 engines. The vessel, MACK ATTACK, was commissioned by Mack Boring & Parts Co. to demonstrate the reliability and performance of Scania’s most powerful pleasure craft-certified V8 engines.
 
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to feature our 16-liter, 1,150 HP Scania pleasure craft engines in another Viking demo platform,” said Patrick McGovern, President of Mack Boring & Parts Co. “The MACK900 exceeded our expectations in performance and exposure when we introduced the Scania 900 HP engine to the market in 2021.”
 
McGovern continued by saying, “We see this 48’C project as the natural next step for the introduction of the more powerful Scania V8 and showing the complete marine lineup Scania has to offer. The team at Viking work to the industry’s highest standards, so it builds a great deal of confidence in the market when we are able to successfully integrate into their yachts.”
 
“We’re excited to be working with Mack Boring once again and are happy to be providing a test platform for Scania with our 48 Convertible, which is a very popular owner/operator model for us,” said Anthony Scola, Sales Manager for Viking Yachts International. “The Scania 900 proved successful in our 46 Billfish, and we look forward to the performance results of their 1,150s in our 48.”
 
The MACK ATTACK is set to splash within the coming months and will travel the East Coast waterways, participating in several angling tournaments, including the White Marlin Open, the Beach Haven White Marlin Invitational, and The MidAtlantic Tournament.
 
“Offshore tournament anglers expect the most from their boats in some of the most unpredictable conditions around,” said David Hughes, Sales Manager of Marine Products for Scania USA. “We are so pleased that the winning combination of Viking and Scania has been selected by the Mack Boring team as their workhorse for the coming season. We are excited to see the finished product and can’t wait to see how they do this year.”
 
Built on a Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) engine block and employing a simple wastegate turbocharger, the Scania DI16-liter engine delivers top-of-class performance without the need for additional turbos or superchargers. The resulting lighter weight, combined with Scania’s proprietary Engine Management System (EMS) and common rail extra high-pressure injection system (XPI), optimizes fuel delivery enabling impressive torque, lower noise and exceptional fuel efficiency.
