Re: replacement Yanmar cost

13k if you're replacing an existing yanmar and doing it yourself
15k if you're replacing a different make of motor and doing it yourself
17k if you're replacing an existing yanmar and paying someone else to do it
20k if you're paying someone else to do it

Give more details if you want better figures.

Re: replacement Yanmar cost

More info will be better, what size, horsepower, same engine for same engine?
If the footprint is the same and you dont have any major project in the engine room, like repair roten engine stringers, or replace prop or shaft etc...is only the price of the engine plus the labour to lift up the old engine and drop the new one and screw it to the engine bed , conect fuel line, water , trasmision coupling , panel, electrical stuff and a dozen of small things , here in St marteen we can get a 4JH for something around 12000$ , labour i dont know , it depend of many factors.

34k for a motor replacement? Really?

PNW must be brutal.

But anywho, it would be a lot better to have more details out of OP.

Usually double the cost is pretty safe. Its all the little stuff engine beds that need work even like for like models you may find something funky, haul out costs crane lay days drive train on and on. Labor up here is pretty steep. That said you could greatly cut the cost down with knowledgable DIY and good planning but for a hands off turn key instal I would start with double.

I would say the first thing for sure would be a engine survey and comp test with a qualified mech. FYI 30,000hrs is a lot of hrs on a diesel not 3000. If not maintained it can kack in 500 but if everything checks out you may only be looking at injectors, fuel pump and turbo overhaul for piece of mind. If the boat did a lot of motoring under load, that is a good thing.
