Ig 32

I am considering an IG 32 with a 225 Sabre diesel. I am a little concerned, that this may be more motor than needed, especially as it is a turbo. What will be the downside of cruising at 8kt. in respect the fuel consumption and engine wear? Ideas?

******* I agree. There are a lot of later model IG 32s that have Cummins 330Bs in them that do fine at 8.5 kots. The Sabre shouldn't be a problem.
