I have been driving a lot of Steyr (212 and the 246) and i just love them, it`s a very reliable engine.
The only problem we have here in Sweden is that there is very few places to get parts, service etc.
Before buying i have to recomend you to check around were you have your boat that there is a service station.
One good thing to here from a guy in Sweden (service station) is that it`s hard to sell them because you never have any engines that brakes down so they get some work on the engines, they only earn money of selling the engines and service, no other jobs.
Good commercial for the engines but the problems comes to find a service station.
No coments of the Volvo, i am swedish so you know what i say, buy it
