We just removed our Four cylinder Volvo Penta marine diesel, model MD 21. 75 hp SAE from our 35ft Hallberg-Rassy Rasmus with the intention of rebuilding it before we begin our 2-3 years of crusing the world next September (Windtraveler
) - well, we are learning that:
a) Volvo's are rarely worth rebuilding ($$$$$) and
b) When we do "shove off" - parts for Volvo are not only $$$ but difficult to come by.
That said, we have heard from a few folks (and based on my research on this site) that Yanmar is the way to go.
My question is - does ANYONE out there know what type of Yanmar would fit our boat - or what a comparable Yanmar model would be to our engine (as listed above)? Or does anyone know how I would go about finding this information?
Thanks in advance!!
