i went for a short ride in a boat today with steyr engines. my sil works for a builder and today was launch day. a pair of 255hp steyr's in a 47 maine cat. it goes pretty good 26kt at a screaming 4500rpm. it is the first diesel i have ever seen that holds a 100psi of oil pressure with the motor up to temp. engine speed and trans are fly by wire

I was speaking to my boss today (Greg Diesel), as I was very interested on us possibly becoming a Steyr Dealer, and he informed me that while they are extremely well designed engine, they are a 6,000 hour engine. That is what he was told by the Austrian founder down at the Miami show when he was asking questions about certain components, and due to their high RPM rating, they are recommended to be overhauled every 6,000 hours, regardless of GPH consumed. Disappointing, as they are very impressive engines when looking at all the spec. sheets.
