Re: Westerbeke vs Yanmar
Round and Round. First, you can't belive everything you read on the internet. La Ceiba Shipyard is not a Yanmar Dealer. Only Westerbeke. My next hurdle is getting around what model is available for me. They only seem to have a 12hp with 2 cyl. I want 3 cyl. for the smooth run. It seems to me like it will jump around a lot. The 30 is too big and is the smallest they have in 3 cyl. The little 12 hp looks sharp, and looks like it's not a V drive, which would be deal breaker. So, has anybody any experience with the new 12 hp Westerbekes? It looks like a tight little engine. Should push my little 28 footer along all right. I'm 80% sure I'm going with this model unlesss some one has some horror story about this model. Does anyone have an idea where to get a ball park price on line or know off hand what they cost?
