Maritimo, a world leader in luxury yacht design and manufacturing, is taking high performance to a new level by expanding its longstanding partnership with Scania to include boats built for the US and Canada.
Effective immediately, Scania’s 16-liter V8 and 13-liter in-line six-cylinder engines with industry-leading power-to-weight ratio will power their newly upgraded R Performance Editions, the Maritimo X50R and X60R.
"Maritimo is excited to extend our relationship with Scania into the North American market. Scania’s product ethos align closely with those of Maritimo – performance, efficiency, economy, reliability and dependability, are areas where Scania have met and exceeded our expectations of an engine partner in our longstanding relationship.”

Delivering breathtaking responsiveness and exhilarating performance, Maritimo’s X50R will house twin 800 HP DI13 Scania engines, while the X60R will feature twin 1,150 HP DI16’s for the ultimate in high-speed cruising. Powered by Scania’s innovative high-performance lightweight engines, the X60R is one of the fastest motor yachts Maritimo has ever produced.
Built on a Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) engine block and employing a simple wastegate turbocharger, the twin Scania DI13-liter engines deliver 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, maximizing long range cruising. The engines are certified by the EPA to meet the Tier 3 Recreational standard for marine diesel engines.
“Scania’s service support of our Australian and New Zealand-based owners has been exemplary, and their commitment to support the North American market made the decision to extend our relationship an easy one. We looked forward to working closely with Scania and providing further benefit to Maritimo's existing owners and future customers in the Americas.”
