Engine comparison

Hello, I'm Pete and new to the group. Wondering if there's been any recent comparisons done on small diesels, 20hp-50hp range (Yanmar, Beta, Nanni, etc.).

I live in Queensland, Australia.

Re: Engine comparison

Welcome aboard CF, woopeter11.

Work your way through these CF threads (some old, some recent).
https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=011403...76j30874102j13

FWIW, there is a Google Custom Search feature the pull down search menu at the top right area of each CF page and it is a pretty good way of finding previous CF threads/ posts. For the above search I simply used the words yanmar beta

Hi again, yep I'm new! Can't find the google Custom search feature you mentioned!
Also, what does FWIW mean?
Cheers,
Pete

Re: Engine comparison

Hi Fore and Aft,
I'm currently in Canberra and will be travelling home to Gin Gin soon, then having a look around Gympie as we're looking at relocating there.
Are you still in the district?
I'm wanting to build a sailing cat from scratch so am beginning to look at options, e.g. engines.
All the best,
Pete

Once you start reading I think youíll generally find the Beta owners the happiest of the bunch.

Who doesnít love a red engine?
