I see that you are from the UK.
Go on and ask for Paul Foulston's help. He is a Cummins guru in the UK. He takes a very common sense approach and has done some "different" things than the norm from his stories.
I'm sure he can offer advice re the Cummins 220 in your application.
Plus he can offer some local help when the dirt starts to fly.

Haven't read the whole thread but has there been any consideration given to modifying the shape of the stern? A FD hull could be made with considerable cutting, laminating and reconfiguring the stern. Single or twin w new prop shaft sett ups and rudder or rudders. Stability and trim would need to be considered of course as this is just an personal idea of mine.

I think it would perform about 80% as good as a regular FD boat depending on the conversion and the FD boat compared to.

If given big rudders I think it may be a practical conversion. The guy to pull it off easily would be Hendo 78.

A DD series 50 sadly is electronic , but would have the power to maintain the resale and is not fuel inefficient as the 2 strokes are at light loads.
Same tranny , drive shaft and prop.

Cheapest for you might be to get the current engines rebuilt and install far more economical injectors.

The next owner could install de fuelers if desired.

The 2 strokes are economical at above 60% of the power there built to , which might still be higher than you want , even tuned down.

Check with a local small charter bus co, and see if they can recommend a rebuilder.
