Hylas 56 Engine Failure

A few weeks ago our 2014 Hylas 56 suffered an engine failure. The engine had 960 hours and was a Yanmar 4JH4-HTE 110 HP. We have just about completed a full engine replacement. As a part of the replacement process we did a full forensic review of the cause. It was independently determined that the engine ingested sea water which caused the engine to seize.
I would like to ask all owners and operators to contact me if you have had a similar experience. My intent is to determine if similarities exist between these failures.
I can be contacted by phone or email.
