If you're circunnavigating, you'll have just few options, as outside US you find just larger diesel manufacturers spreaded on every spot. Familiarize yourself with international diesel market, what is waaaaay smaller in options, than US market. Yanmar is my choice 1- has thousands of representatives and tons of spareparts around south oceans, our homeground. 2- it runs at max 3,000 rpm, a bit lower than competition. 3- improved noise and vibration recently, well, still a lot to go, but getting beter. 4- cheapest world wide class engine. If you do a quick search on southatlantic area, every fishing boat around here does go for Yanmar. And this one is as reliable as others you find in US.
