Replacing the engine

I have come to the conclusion that I need to replace my engine. But the boot is on the hard in Egersund in Norway and now during the winter I is in Höllviken in the south of Sweden. If I drive up to Egersund it will be 1000 km one way. (For those that aren’t familiar with the unit, as comparison the distance between the equator and the North Pole is 10000 km).

The engine that today is in the boot is a Yanmar YSB12. According the handbook it measures, length from the clutch 638 mm, width 673 mm and height 485 mm. I have a straight shaft that tilts 13.5°. (Weight 130 kg)

One of the engines that I have looked at is Lombardini LDW 1003 M. It measures, length 643 mm, width 488 mm and height 512 mm. (Weight 115 kg)

The question is, will that engine fit in my engine room?
As I remember I do have some space in length and height but nothing in width. Do I need more measures before its possible to say if it fits? If I get a gearbox with a clutch that tilts 7°, would that help?

I know that the propeller could be a problem. Today I have a two blades Autoprop Ø 400 mm. That is Autoprops second largest. I have got preliminary information that with that propeller I can have a 30 hp engine. In worst case I can have a three blades Autoprop Ø 400 mm.
