After looking for a 315 yanmar for months and not finding one I am comfortable buying ,I am considering installing a new D4-300 volvo. Becouse the boat has a 454 gasser its tough to fit anything else in the engine compartment without major changes ,I can also use my same gear and prop with these two engines saves me lots of $$$.
Whats everbody's thoughts on the volvo for this application? I will run the boat less than 500 hours a year and I do not want gas in this boat.

The D4 is a good power planet. Although I prefer the 315 yanmar 6 this motor should fit your needs. You will need a 2.5 gear as this motor turns up 3500 RPMs. Speed in the H&H with this motor I would [email protected] 15 knots.

I think a 3208 is only an inch or 2 longer than the 315 yanmar. Incase you were wondering. You also might want to talk to F/V First Team (Travis) and see if Sisu has any options for you.

Great motors the 3208 I am ma very big fan on them, however it does weigh about 1500 Lbs more that the 315 Yanmar and the odds of a fit are very slime. Plus you would need a different transmission. The diesel you selected are both high RPMs therefore your gas 2:5 gear, shaft & wheel will work.

Motor is worth a look they have two out of a twin screw patrol boat. I ma sure the hours were at high cruising speed, but gov'ts well maintain there gear. In addition buying one with the gear saves you the money of the bell housing, damper & tranny cooler hook all assembled. up plus it is the 63A gear at the correct ratio.

I called on those motors and got disconnected and I could not get a hold of him after that.Plus they are in california $1500 to ship $400 for a surveyer and no warranty. Volvo = 5 grand more full warranty and its local.It doesnt make sense to go that way, if they were local I would be all over it.

Can,t find that motor on boat diesel do you have the model #?

That's not the one on boat diesel. He was just suggesting that as an option. I believe its a pair of yanmar 315s on BD. Id look for you but I changed ISPs and I cant recover my PW :(

Sorry for the confusing post
I am a member on boat diesel. I was looking on the engine page for the Inveco 295 4 cyl. I only see them up to 250 hp. I did call on the yanmars just to far away.
