Replacment for Perkins M20

I'd like to replace the engines on my used catamaran with new ones. Both are Perkins M20 engines. I was wondering if there's a replacement equivalent made by VolvoPenta as I heard they make engines similar to the Perkins. Thanks in advance.

Yes, and I believe it's the Volvo Penta MD2020. They're not made by Volvo Penta--they're made by the same Japanese manufacturer who made them for Perkins--and a lot of tractor manufacturers. The motors are the same, but some of the marinization parts may be different.
