Sabre 28 Volvo Question

I am starting my search for a Sabre 28 of the 1976+ vintage. I would prefer a S28 with original Atomic 4 replaced with a Universal or Yanmar Diesel. My understanding is Volvo will be more expensive and harder to find parts. My question is if I should really stay away from Volvos? How bad will maintaining them be and are there any good replacement options?

Sabre 28 Volvo Question

Just to give you an example, I have a Volvo Penta 2003t on my boat. The oil cooler just failed. The cast aluminum shell corroded through and started leaking oil. (There is no zinc to address the salt water corrosion problem.) When I called a local Volvo supplier about a replacement oil cooler, I was told the price would be $1,800.00. Amazing!!!
