I don't know what the 2003 designates but you can get a download manual for 2003 series diesels here ...

Publication search - Publications / Manuals : Volvo Penta

Max rpm is 3200. Cruising should be in the manual.

This is the model. The 2000 series 2001,2002,2003,2003T were built in the mid to late eighties. The worst engines Volvo ever built. They followed these with the 20** series e.g. 2030 for the 3 cylinder job.

I wanted to check my owners manual this weekend.
Max rpm is 3200. Cruise is 80% of that. We do 2600.
