"Diesels need to run at 75-80 % power at cruising speeds. Running all the time at 50 % is not good for the motors, especially if they have have turbos. (Always heard this, but had it confirmed at Mack Borings diesel 2 day seminar"

As long as the boat is propped correctly running most any turbo diesel at 50% will be fine and even preferred.
