diesel Renault

I'm considering buying a sailboat that has an 8hp diesel Renault.

The Renault runs OK but I'm concerned about future parts and repairs.

Anyone have experience with these?

Re: diesel Renault

I have a renault scenic car...they are great engines overall with some issues with parts...I heard the diesel inboards were really heavy and stout but thats about it...I have not seen one in a boat yet do you know the model?

Re: diesel Renault

that sounds good to me

I loved the nanni, slash vetus mitsu diesel we had on a boat I cruised on...loud but bulletproof...did a circumnav without even a hiccup...not even a fuel pump change
