Nanni and Scania sign agreement
Nanni has signed an agreement with Scania enabling it to supply engines for larger yachts.
The two companies have decided to join forces, with the aim of capitalising on their skills. The goal, they say is to implement opportunities in both the commercial and the leisure vessel sectors.
“With Nanni’s global sales and service network, Scania will gain instant access to a major market for the large pleasure boat segment,” said Torben Dabrowski, global product manager marine at Scania. “In recent years, this market has experienced a strong growth, which is one reason why the partnership with Nanni is attractive to Scania.”
Access to Scania’s marine engine range will allow Nanni to increase the range of products on offer - currently the company has a peak power output of 1,200hp – around 882W. However the company has made it clear it wants to increase its presence in the 15m to 25m yacht market.
Optimum power to weight
Initially Scania will supply Nanni with two engines - the six-cylinder in-line 13-litre and the 16-litre V8 – to be marketed as the N13 and N16 Platinum series.
The engines will comply with the latest emission regulations and will be shown at September’s Cannes Boat Show.
The agreement will use Scania’s experience in the production of trucks and buses and the technology the company has developed particularly in relation to optimum weight/power ratio and fuel efficiency.
Scania’s focus on sustainable transport solutions fits well with Nanni’s product portfolio and the company’s commitment to ‘Energy in Blue’, added Torben.
