the saildrive for the kubota/betamarine is made by technodrive in italy, the whole package (engine and saildrive) looks like a brilliant design, in fact i liked it so much i just installed one in my flying dutchman 37. i have not ran it yet because im waiting for a new prop. they do make adaptors for connecting it to your volvo engine. the only beef i have is like the volvo and unlike the yanmar you must remove the prop to replace the zincs. having said that i much prefer the beta to the yanmar, servicing is easier and the beta runs much quieter, not to mention the kubota has legendary reliability.
