I have had boats with Perkins T6.354, Ford-Lehman 120, and Cummins 6BTA. I have also worked and helped owners work on many of each of those. I have also worked on several Cummins 6BT engines in trucks.

For me the best by far of that group is the Cummins 6B series. They are very simple to maintain, most things are accessible (except the RW pumps on some models), parts (oem and aftermarket) are available everywhere including NAPA, and there is a lot of model to model interchangability. Any diesel truck mechanic can work on them if required. The base engines are built in huge volumes and the marine "add ons" are pretty robust in most cases.
