Turbo or non-turbo. Like everything else on a boat it depends on what you are going to use it for. A turbo when you are running the ICW on the east coast of the US, or daytripping out of any harbor is one thing. A single engine turbo crossing an ocean is one more thing that can break.

My preference is simplicity when crossing oceans. I have a Yanmar wing engine that can be started with a hand crank.
