Spares easily available in UK, Norway, Denmark etc
Searios,
I bought my engine from Klassen ( in Seattle (parent co in SW Canada)) but now the’ve moved (down the street) to Hatton Engines. We usta eat lunch in Seattle at the Salmon Bay Cafe and Hatton/Yukon is right across the parking lot. Don’t see them much anymore as the cafe is not what it usta be. I suspect Yukon is selling Iveco engines also.
But re spares on the NW Pacific coast including Canada and Alaska I can’t imagine one being in better hands to get parts or service than to be under the Yukon/Klassen umbrella. Don’t know about the east coast though.

The parts used to marinize an engine need to be readily available as much as the engine itself. A low volume of sales does not predict good availability of those parts in the future.

No Willy not because other kids like it but because market success makes for better experience later.

bayview,
Indeed it would seem so and re many questions it does. But market success is largely dependant on people liking a product. Subaru tells us in TV adds that Subaru’s are made with love. Ridiculous but it seems to make people like Subarus. And some concentrate on some aspect of a business and not others. Volvo and their parts issue for example. They are a big successful company but don’t do everything well.
But yes re the marineazation parts. Yukon/Klassen have been doing it for over 50 years. So a low volume of sales does not show lack of success either.

Hi Scott,
Why don't you ask Bill Kimley at Seahorse? They have been fitting Iveco motors to Ducks for a while.
Don't be talked into a motor that is too powerful, as your boat is designed to be easily driven.
Cheers,
Richard.
