Wanted 220-250 ish BHP Diesel Turbo engine

I am looking for a complete Turbo diesel engine, that will produce 220-250 or more BHP. Needs to be fairly high revving and have all of its marinisation kit with it. I will consider a fixer upper. It will be working with a Castoldi 238 jet unit.
I can be contacted on rokraider@mac.com

it wouldn't be an 8 metre Ribcraft would it?

If I was a 4*4 specialist i'd be interestd in knowing that the yamaha me420 (240hp) and the higher rated Yanmar engine were modifed toyaota landcruiser lumps. 4.2 straight 6 turbo diesel. If you wanted to marinise your own you can get marinisation compnents from EJBOWMAN.co.uk

what revs do the Castoldi's handle?

The Yanmar was 315hp wasn't, nearly had one of those for my boat!

I'll get the number of the lad who supplied our engine and PM it to you, he seemed to have a few different things in and out.

Hi Rogue

You are right about where the engine comes from (landcruiser/Me420) but the pistons will give out long before you get to 200hp, you need to use Yamaha pistons but you will need a kidney and an arm, ohhh by the way a water cooled Yamaha turbo is 3000 + vat.

Thanks for the replies.
I had considered the Land Cruiser lump, but they are fairly thin on the ground amongst my usual contacts. It think they may be quite heavy as well.
My old 80 series 4.2 was quite a guzzler in standard trim, so I imagine one with the power turned up will be even worse?
Anyone running a marinised version of this, how is it on fuel? I will check out your suggestions for suppliers of the marinisation kit.

i believe Yanmar use the 3.0 Surf engine as a base as well. As a road going engine, they don't have a good reputation, I have had several at my business with cracked heads.I am surprised they hold together with the wick turned up.

I am currently considering using a BMW 3.0 turbo diesel and marinising it myself. Looking at the specs, on paper it looks ideal. Also there appear to be a lot of plonkers driving the cars, judging by the number in the scrap yards. Interestingly the majority appear to have stuffed their right hand front corner??
The main problem is trying to establish which one to use as the base to start from, there seem to be several variations of the theme. Ideally I want a non CRD with a mechanical pump. It will have less electronics to worry about. Initial investigations appear to suggest that the standard version would put out around 190 BHP. With a bit of fiddling with the pump and boost, that will easily increase to 220+ without stressing the motor too much.

Ideally, I would rather buy something reliable, ready to go for my project, but they seem thin on the ground..

I bought the stripped hull of the BWM Deep Sea 21 Sea Explorer that was on here a couple of weeks ago.
I have been looking for 6.0+- metre with a cuddy for a while. This should be good project. I am starting effectively with a blank sheet.

Thanks for the EJ Bowman link, their stuff looks good.
