Re: BetaMarine or Yanmar. Which would you choose?

Most of the complaints on this thread are about common rail. The OP is looking at 30hp engines. The Yanmars at and below 30hp are not common rail.

Re: BetaMarine or Yanmar. Which would you choose?

Just got a quote to supply thermostat for Yanmar 6PHME engine Seems it will cost me $380.00 for one here in Australia. They may be good engines but that is a crazy price.

Google YANMAR 128990-49800 gives you a range of US$40-100

Re: BetaMarine or Yanmar. Which would you choose?

Both are good engines - it is the support, policies and pricing that are the differences. Yanmar is there to support the dealers, not the owners. You must go thru the dealer for everything if the warranty is to be valid.

When I had a mis-Installed exhaust and it sucked saltwater on a new engine (and the dealer left it sit for 3 days). Yanmar defended the dealer! Had to take the legal route, and ended up with a beta ... dead simple and easier to work on yourself. Cheaper parts and easier availability (tractor dealers everywhere if marine are not available).
