Not so. There are Bodegas with Volvo diesels out there. I know this because I've been jonesing after one of those boats for ages, and have been following the listings for them on Yachtworld.com. (I only have a 2859 now, but...baby steps, baby steps...)

I went aboard a Bodega at the Seattle boat show (in the Kingdome -- RIP) in 1981. It made a considerable impression on me. My parents had purchased a new Bayliner Victoria 2750 Sunbridge not long before, which to this day is the coolest boat in its size range that I've ever seen, so I was attentive to all things Bayliner at the time.

FYI, their hulls were built by Hatteras -- and therefore, in one pundit's description, were "built to outlast time."

So, bottom line: if you really like the Bodega and really want a diesel example, keep watching the listings.
