Replacement for Perkins M-20

I am considering buying a used catamaran, but I think that I would soon have to replace one of the two engines and its transmission. The engine in need of future replacement is a Perkins M-20 (18 HP) and the transmission is a Hurth model HBW-50. The other engine was replaced a few years back with a Perkins M-30 (27 HP). Can anyone recommend a good/easy replacement for the M-20? Obviously, I would want something around 27 HP. Also, any idea on the approximate total cost of such a repower, including labor cost?

Re: Replacement for Perkins M-20

I think the Volvo Penta 2030 is essentially the same engine as the Perkins M-30. No idea on cost.
