Pretty sure the standard spec boat is fitted with a Hamilton jet drive and a Caterpillar diesel.

Suggest you speak to Rogue Wave from this forum as i believe he has/did have one and therefore will be able to comment from experience.

Personally I'd go for a Yanmar over a Cat in the 300hp range. The Cat is bulletproof but noisy and a tad thirsty. I looked after a Copy of a Hinckley Picnicboat for a guy that had a Yanmar/Hamilton set-up which worked well. A mate that has a pair of Cats in a Sabreline 36 finds them noisy.
