I am not a big fan of Volvos. Not necessarily because the engines are not good, it is the parts availability and support. We had twin Volvos in a previous boat. Every time we needed a part it took forever to get them. I worked part time selling boats for the dealer so he would take a part off a new boat to get mine running, that was the only thing that saved me from being down sometimes for a month or more. And my boat was new, so think about an engine that is 20 to 30 years old. We have Lehmans in our current boat and American Diesel gives excellent support on them. I have never had a Perkins so I canít make a recommendation on them.
