Tom: It is a Nanni N4.38 37.5hp@3000rpm with the C3 instrument panel and a 100Amp alternator
. I am getting the Alternator
converted to an external regulator
at an extra cost. Cost is $10,733.68 and installation
Sailcapt: I would be happy to donate it to a school
for an appropriate donation receipt. Have them contact me if interested.
Pblais: If the guy who scours the planet for this old stuff wants to contact me about this engine I can PM you my email
This engine swap was discussed with several experts before I made my decision on which engine, trans, ratio, prop and drive.
ps: The 33 yr old fuel tank
is being replaced also. My Marina (actually a boatyard as they build large crabbing boats) has a place in NJ that custom makes tanks
. Takes 10 days. Engine out, tank out, measure for new tank, order, install new tank, new engine in, sea trials and go sailing. Don't know the cost of the tank yet, but replacing it was a no brainer as to get to it you have to remove the engine or cut out the cockpit flooring
