volvo vs yanmar

Hi! I have the B 331. We (my wife and I) have enjoyed it very much.... but I didn''t know Volvo, which I thought only made saildrives.. was an option.

We have the westerbeke and it''s been flawless. We''ve only had it one season. Hope you decide to get and enjoy the boat; where are you sailing?

My friend replaced the Volvo engine with a Yanmar on his 20 year old boat. He says it was the best decision he ever made.

I repowerd my boat with a Yanmar 3GM30F, up from an 18hp 2cyl Volvo. After putting up with the Volvo and it''s sometimes unwillingness to perform, the Yanmar has been a DREAM! Smooth, powerfull, and built to last! I think they are the best auxiliaries, BAR NONE. A little more money, but worth every penny.
