cutterorient is on a distinguished road
Agree with the last poster about pro installation.

All things being equal an idea might be to get a used oil sample from each and have it analyzed. Buy the one with the cleanest report. Yjis is likely not possible but its an idea.

I have a Westerbeke and am very satisfied with it. I have never owned a Yanmar but I believe the parts are cheaper for the Yanmars.

Good luck
