It would be a great engine choice in a wakeboard boat (heavy, ballast). I know diesel is the way to go for alot of reasons in europe.
Thats also a rather high RPM diesel, so perhaps the spool up time will be lessened somewhat.

On the positive side, diesels have tremendous low end torque so that may have some hole shot assistance.
