Engine for Vagabond 47

Anybody know which Ford Lehman engine was used on the Vagabond 47? I know of a boat that needs a new engine and I know where a good engine is, but I need to know if it is the right model?

I looked at Vagabonds last year before going with a Formosa 51 (Choice was basically pay a lot for a "cruise-ready" boat, or pay less to acquire a boat which could be upgraded to our specs - and end up paying the same amount, but without any "compromises....). But I digress...

Typically, up until 1982 or so they came with either the 80 or the 120 (2175E?), and after they seemed to have the Super 90. And of course, American Diesel makes their own copy of the 120...

We replaced our worn 120 with a Westerbeke 126-T4 - quite a bit smaller and lighter...

Give Warren Campbell at Contemporary Yachts in Annapolis a call - he's handled Vagabonds for years...
