I think there are at least two plaaces where you can get Yamaha parts.
One is Redbay themselves. I gather they bought the remaining engine stock.
And the second is Pietro Giovannoli (NI guy with Italian sounding name, I usually forget it, but not this time folks) who has a variety of parts as well.

I'm putting a yamaha into my scorpion. As Ken says they can be mated to a bravo. And the yanmar's are getting harder (expensive) to find !

B1x shiney new in box. The revised the design some 3 yrs ago to include cooling fins on the very top, in addition to previous "x" enchantments so should be a sturdy bit of kit.

My only real extensive experience of diesel was the awesome Magellan who ran a B2, later replaced with a B2X. She suffered with the turbo lag / big prop charchestists already described but it was a beast of a boat carried momentum and needed to slow down in general a whole load less than a light open RIB would generally. It was a well suited combo.
