What caught me off guard $ wise was the lay-up time in the yard; we had 2 weeks of constant rainy weather right after dry docking. Don't forget to add the yard time into your costs.

That's not a problem.."The dealer and installer" rides his bike to my slip a minute and a half away..."Sought of right in my lap"...Not leaving for another month in a half..so I'm in ideal position for installation and sea trials. Should be able to do it right in my slip....Good point though

Yea, right. Volvo took my MD21A off their spares list. Luckily, the MD32, its six cylinder brother, is still there, for a while. Then there's the AQ120, which has some common bits, also an old engine. 30 years isn't much for a marine diesel, but if the manufacturer gives up on supporting spares, .... I hope Yanmar has a better record.

As was said above, auxillary was a term that wasn't ment to be taken lightly 25-30 years ago. The nice thing about replacing a diesel of that vintage is that a similar size engine will have 20% more power. I looked at a 40hp Yanmar that had the same dimensions as our 32hp. And the unanimous decision around this part of the world was Yanmar. Isuzu makes a great diesel but some models aren't cut out for the marine environment. the other nice thing about a new engine is fuel consumption is on average 10% better. For offshore work this could be significant. I'd like to here from anyone that has repowered recently. What was the final bill?
The 40 HP..Yanmar is the 3jh4E but I figured I'd go up one notch to the4jH4E...54 HP...50hp continuous..In the scheme of things..whatever the extra cost..for the additional power..I would have no regrets..particularly in a difficult seaway..I'll keep the thread posted seeing the dealer tomorrow

Are you thinking of doing an engine replacement w/out dry docking the boat?

Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice
Yamnar has several main service/import centers in europe. The nearest to me is in Spain

Then the dealers all over in each Country. The nearest to me 1 mile!!!!

I had an engine mount broken from overtightening, when they installed it. I complained on a Thursday morning to the dealer near my boat, he called Spain that same instance and the monut was sent the same day from Spain.
Installed Friday at 2 pm and I was off to sea at 2:30pm!!!!!!1

They sent me a voucher for a free oil change and service and a leather organizer!!!

Beat that!!!?????!!! (previous experience) Volvo...IN MY MARINA!!!! wouln't even answer the phone...had to go there 5 times call the guy....they didn't show up for 2 days, replaced a part under guarantee and charged me for man hours!!!!!

Thus my bias

One thing to keep in mind when you put in a new engine is that there are a lot of additional parts to buy: shaft, exhaust, thru-hull, custom engine mount, engine bed glass work, etc... etc... The price does add up. The labor is also very expensive if you can't do the work yourself.

That being said, is it worth it?
You bet!
Knowing that the engine will start on the first twist of the key is wonderful peace of mind. It is also auto bleeding which is an excellent feature.

After reading three pages of really helpful comments..Will talk to the dealer tomorrow morning..I'm focusing on the Yanmar 4JH4-E...56 HP..50 continuous...makes sense for my boat..optimistic about engine bed footprint being fairly compatible.."We'll see tomorrow..Thanks for ALL the comments

Please do Giu. I might get some ideas from it. Most of my new installation I will be doing myself.

Oh! I forgot to suggest that you check all the extras needed, especially the propellor.
