Turbo diesels are good in the right application, unfortunately I do not think sail boats or any displacement boat are the correct application for such an engine, particularly when boost and electronic controls are applied to give a normally aspirated version two or three more powerful variant. Buy the norammly aspriated version, carefully maintained, it will last a long, long time......
