What engine is the Westerbeke model 38B Four, based on?

We have inherited a Westerbeke model 38B Four, serial no, 28589-D204 and I am trying to find out the base engine is so that I can source parts that may not still be available from Westerbeke and may also be much cheaper elsewhere.

Starter is Mitsubishi, although I believe this means nothing!!!

I have tried searching the net and also other forums for this information but so far no luck?

Any Ideas?
