We have seen many videos of a cool engine swaps, but we have to say that this is the first diesel powered speed boat we have seen! This beast was outfitted with the Cummins diesel engine at Old School Garage and man does this things shred on the water. The owner also has a cool rig that he uses to shuttle his boat back and forth to the ramp, a classic truck that’s been converted to a flatbed and it makes the perfect tow truck.
We believe that the tow truck has a diesel engine in ti too! Even that we knew that the boat is diesel, we still wasn’t prepared for what we were about to see and hear. As soon as they crank the engine, it will throw you off because while many large boats and ships are diesel powered, they aren’t powered by a powerful 600 HP Cummins engines with a turbo hung out in the wind. We watch as the owner warms up the boat and then decides to let it eat, and is quite a sight and a treat for the ears too.
We know that some people will say that they or somebody they know has already done this, but we haven’t seen their video so we can’t share it. If you have seen another boat like this one and you think that our fans would like to see, or if you have anything automotive related that’s just purely cool, post it up on our Facebook wall. Check the video below and enjoy!
