Saw this today:
Cummins Marine QSB 5.9 engine & gear New old stock
Same as this with some extra goodies included. Better pricing for members here Cummins QSB 305 New Old Stock, Not a reman
Not sure if this was listed but came across this one recently. The listing is about 2 months old, tho.
Cummins Marine Diesel QSB 480 5.9
Same type motor as the orginal posting. I do wonder about the comments about it being removed because the boat required a lighter motor... A lighter motor is maybe 500 LBS lighter and I doubt that is sufficent savings for a boat that might have this motor in. Only 117 hours. $23000. Power steering setup for an extra $1500. ZF85A 1.5/1 for $4750.
It is sufficient weight savings when you have a pair of them just ahead of the transom. Engines were replaced with Yanmar 370s, took 1200 plus pounds off the rear of the boat. the boat was the Oracle America's Cup chase boat.
I forgot about twins! I was thinking about one motor only...
Thanks for the info.
