Tartan 31 diesel engine

I am looking at a 1994 Tartan 31.
Any concerns about the 19 HP Westerbeke diesel having enough power for the boat?
Any reliability concerns?

Re: Tartan 31 diesel engine

Should be adequate power. Common rule of thumb is 1.5 to 2 HP per thousand pounds of displacement. I believe the T31 is about 9000 lbs light so you are in the upper end of the range.
