The Kabota have a good reputation and frequently are less costly than other marinizations.
Best is they are mostly lawn , farm vehicle or other utility engines.
This means parts are cheaper and may be available for longer .
With good engine selection you should be able to use the existing shaft and prop .
As most engines are near same power per cubic inch (non turbo) the engine size can sometimes be smaller and lighter for the same cruise speed , and better fuel use.
Most important is to start with a known , boats cruise RPM and existing transmission ratio.
Marine provides quality marine propulsion diesels engines
to suit a wide range of applications at very competitive prices.Engines
