Beta all the way

We also repowered our 36 sail boat from a Perkins 4-108 to a 38 hp Beta. So far, OK only 15 hours on it but it is still kicking!
See post “Any pros cons on the Beta Marine engines please?”

Beta Marine Diesels are made in the UK...I would imagine you could get it serviced in the UK. Last time I checked, the UK is outside of the US.

Love my Beta!

Beta engines are Kubotas which have parts and service world wide. Beta just adds all the stuff needed to run them with water cooling and other nice to have things like an oil change pump.

I too, love my Beta.
