i have those 3208 on my boat, as many have informed that model comes in a variety of configurations.
mine are 260hp turbo. i find them very reliable.. and by no means overpowered.
a friend has the 325 hp in the same boat as mine (38 ft californian), and his boat really gets up and goes.
sure it burns fuel, but it all depends how much throttle you apply.
btw, boatdiesel website is a great resource for research etc.
