I had a boat with the smaller single cyl. DV 8/10 with a sail drive. I really liked the engine itself. I found the engine to reliable and easy to work on. The down side was that parts were wildly expensive compared to Yanmar for example and that out of stock parts took forever to get even if they were normal maintenance items, and that there were relatively few sources in the US for replacements parts.

Mine had a saildrive which meant you were stuck buying a Gori Prop. I would never buy a boat that required a Gori prop again. Gori is the worst!
