With a bit of ingenuity you can hoist the old out and drop a new one in - a beam and block & tackle and/or using the boom. A used rebuilt 3 cylinder Yanmar or similar probably 3 to 5k but I'm only guessing at that.
As far as the outboard goes I doubt you'd be very mobile with only 10 hp on a 36' 13,500 lb boat.

The plot thickens I just got wind of a Kubota 28hp for $1500!

That would be the same price as my outboard monstrosity...

Are these engines similar enough to pull one and drop in another or will many systems need to be modified to make the swap from a yanmar 3GMD to a Kubota 28hp?

No offense, bmac, but if you are "over" working on engines, if you don't like contorting yourself to fit around an engine, if the smell of gas or diesel makes you ill, if you want a rebuilt engine "for a song"... then maybe you should consider joining a sailing club, and sailing daysailers.
If you are going to cruise, you are going to have to get dirty.
If you are going to sail cheap, you are going to have to work on engines, and you are going to have to get dirty.
If you don't want to get bogged down in projects, you are going to have to buy a brand new boat.


A solid Tartan 30 with a decent running powerplant is a much netter deal than a bigger Hunter with a dead heart.

Or, here's a compromise for you. Smaller than the 36, bigger than the Tartan. This one could probably go home with somebody for about $16-17K US:

The kubota will require, at the least...
new engine mounts, possibly new beds.
New shaft flange, possible the shaft will have to be modified.
New cabling, wiring, and controls.
Does it come with a transmission? If not, a transmission will be required.
Is it marinized? if not, then the list gets longer.

Then seeing as the yanmar 3GMD is no longer in production is there a bolt up replacement option or is it down to rebuild the existing motor or face an extensive transplant?

I would take the Kubota and pay to have it installed. You will be far ahead then, even if the cost to install it is what the engine itself costs.

And then the smell of gas everytime you disconned the fuel tank. And if you are into reducing manmade global warming in competition with natural global warming, Have you looked at electric drives?

spend the $3500.00 and install an electric motor...
this way you can satisfy your radical environut ideals and have the bigger boat also...

seem like a pretty simple o brainer....

Allow at least $12,000 in any offer for rebuilding the negine.. If you don't want to stick with what's in it, repalce with more HP not less...

Certified...in several regards...

Another idea would be to check your local community colleges for a diesel school. Sometimes they will take on projects and you just pay for the parts. It is also customarily to tip the students when they are through if they do a good job.
