Exclamation Sea Prop 60?

Hi all,

I am looking at replacing a Volvo 120s saildrive with a Technodrive Sea Prop 60 as part of a repowering project. Engine is 35hp. Does anyone have any experience with the Sea Prop 60? Are they reliable? Any problems with the unit or the Volvo replacement to be aware of? Are parts difficult to obtain or expensive?

Big project so thanks in advance. I have been unable to find much information from anyone having longer term experience with these saildrives.

Bob

Re: Sea Prop 60?

I don't have any answers for you, but just wanted to point you toward Beta Marine, as I think they sell those saildrives. Maybe they can give you references?

When it comes to saildrives, not all are equal, so your instinct to research is a good one. It would be difficult to find a better one than Volvo's, but the 120S is long in the tooth.

Thanks Mark. I have spoken to Beta and they were very helpful. I was hoping for some first hand information from someone who has a SP60 installed and in use for a period of time. So far everything I have heard is positive but there is no first hand experience to draw upon yet. Nothing is as good as sailors praising or bemoaning their gear!

Re: Sea Prop 60?

I am looking for the same information. I am considering replacing ZF SD10 sail drives with the SP60s. Nanni is also using these drives but feedback appears scarce. Have you made a decision yet?

Re: Technodrive Sea Prop 60 sail drive spare parts?

I am looking for spare parts for a Technodrive Sea Prop 60 Sail drive. Does anyone know of any decent suppliers that actually stocks spare parts for these sail drives? I am being told 4-6 weeks to special order standard replacement parts and I cannot wait that long! Anywhere in the world would be OK. I am located in Thailand but I will be going to Europe in a few weeks by plane.
