Best Diesel engine for one of these boats?

I want 300-300hp diesel engine. Go for Yanmar 315, Volvo Penta 310 or Mercrusier? I want good speed close to 40 knots or something close to it. And cruising speed around 28-30 knots. Bravo 3?

Should I go for askeladden, Minor, Targa or Anytec? Help me... Or do you have any other ideas?


Askeladden 805 commuter www.askeladden.no


Minor 29 http://www.minor.fi/page_eng.asp?luokka_id=87&main=3

Targa 27.1

targa every time.

we looked at the yanmar option, however they are keen to fit volvos. Volvos evc/edc controls are the best by far.

The Targa is the only one of those that I have tried and I really rate it. From first appearances the others look like they may be in a similar league.

Like Jono says, Targa favour Volvos, in fact I think that might be the only option that they offer.

Yamaha With Hydradrives

Have you considered Yamaha With Hydradrives?

Redbay are big fans of the Yamaha diesels especially for boats that are going to have to work hard.

Best of luck.

Anytec no diskussions, dont think the people know Anytec very well in the UK but i would say its the most heavy duty you can get in Sweden, the other mentioned boats are not playing in the same league, the price of an Anytec is in another range than the rest, much more expensive.
That doesnt say that the other boats are bad because they are not, its great boats but Anytec should`nt be compared with these boats.
The other 3 are in the same class and i would choose Targa.

Only Targa in UK

Petrov - think you're right - UK members will only have experience of Targas here - we don't get the other boats.

Have surveyed a few Targas and they are generally in good condition.

The Met Police have a few as does the Southampton Harbour Master.

The larger Targas are/can be fitted with water jets as well.

I would recommend a Targa but have no experience of the others so can't comment.
