Well what eva you say on the price of volvo thay are very good. 4 you as u say you do many hours its worth it if you got the cash. yanmar are good but not fully tested yet. i work with them both n we neva have probs with volvos but with yanmars thay have lil things that go rong all the time and no one likes down time. volvo are very good on parts as well.

The problems with the Yanmar engine and Mercruiser leg combination are well documented, with both major components suffering from failures.

If you think Yamaha parts are expensive, go on YBW Forums and find out what Volvo owners think about parts cost and quality of service.

There aren't many of Yamaha's new 315HP ME432 installed yet, but users of them are very enthusiastic. Unlike the 315HP Yanmar unit, there's very little turbo lag, allegedly.
