Hi,
we also have Volvo Penta. Lots of people will discourage you, since parts for Volvo are very expensive. Look especially on mounts, which tend to be very light and brake (ours did). Don't hire a specialist Volvo Penta mechanic unless you know he's really good. We had extremely bad experience with professionals from Volvo. I would find "normal" marine diesel mechanic that does lot of work for "normal" people with "normal" size engines. Other than that Volvo's are good (regardless what people say). Good luck.
