Diesel Engine won't start

Have a 1985 Hunter sailboat with a 3 cyl. Yanmar diesel engine that was rebuilt just over a year ago. No glow plugs. Ever since rebuilding, the engine has been hard to start especially in the cold weather. Been having to flip two of the three compression switches to help start but now that isn't even working. Some white smoke coming from exhaust while trying to start. Any suggestions or possibilities of what the problem is?
