The triple will be inherently better balanced than the twin. Triples are polular on motorcycles for that reason.
They are Danish, not Swedish. And due to rotating counterweights they do not vibrate much. I have a new (2004) DV24ME and really love it compared to the Volvo's and Yanmar's I've seen. But I've only owned boats with Volvo's (and no engines) before. One of my friends installs these in rescue boats WW and is VERY proud of the product, which was one of the reasons for me to choose that engine (having your own mechanic is also great )
