Why not?

Assuming that you can find a factory recon Tier 3, if it comes from the manufacturer, rebuilt by experts with OEM parts and comes with a (usually half term) warranty, then what's the problem?

Saving $15k on a $35 Cummins is important to many people who don't have huge budgets. Certainly on a home-built boat or a custom made one, doesn't seem like an issue.

Of course if you were walking into a Nordhavn sales office you wouldn't want to, but the person who can afford a $800k base price for a new 40 footer isn't usually concerned about saving 10-20k.
