Perkins 85HP Needed

I'm looking at a Finnsailer 35 with a "missing" engine but the trans and shaft are still there. Where could I find a complete (good used or rebuilt) engine and what would I expect to pay?
Any information or advise about the Finnsailer 35 would also be appreciated especially the weak points and trouble spots to watch for.
Many thanks in helping me reach a decision.

Talk to Trans American Diesel. They are the Perkins experts.

If you are looking for a 6 cylinder, there was one on CL in Ft. Pierce, Fl. It was a running take out complete for about $2500. If you are looking for a 4 cylinder, there are several places in Ft. Lauderdale that have used and rebuilt ones available.

Weclome aboard, Mate. You can have mine, but you will have to buy the entire package ;-) One of the best reliable 4 cylinder diesel motors built. All the best with the search. I'm sure you will score one. Cheers.
