We have had the boat for 3 years now. Ran it home from Virginia to Michigan. No engine problems so far. Only problem I have had related to the engines was a bad stop switch that wouldn’t let me start one engine. New switch and no more problem. Good luck with yours.

That’s great to hear. I spoke with a diesel mechanic over the phone and he has nothing but good things to say about them. WOT was only about 15 MPH, so we won’t be going anywhere fast, that’s for sure.

We got 17 knots during the sea trial. I usually run about 10 mph which is about 1600 RPM on our boat.

Congratulations! I just bought a 43' Marine Trader with twin Lehman's as well. I take possession on Oct 3rd. Can't wait to start on the list of things to do so I can be catching big Bluefin in the spring.

Great choice I love the layout.

So I just got an email from the broker. I guess included with the boat is a brand new “bildge dry” system that hasn’t been installed. I guess it does what it sounds like it does, keeps water out of the bildge? He said it was $2500.
