Best bet is to go by the maintenance manuel.
But if you don't have one then change Lube at the end of the sailing season or every 250 hours also change out the coolant once a year (end of season)
The reason for the end of season change out is because as your boat sits on the hard the solids settle out and you have a gunk build up. Be sure that you have just ran the engine for a half hour to have those solids and LO well mixed then change the oil.
While you have the engine compartment open check all of your electrical connections for corrosion and failing connectors. Do check the battery also.
Proper maintenance and your engine should last your a life time. Check the coolant zincs also.
