    Well back when my 440 6LYAs where blowing up there was some noise. I have had several Yanmars mainly small units all good. The transition to high out-put larger engines was bumpy and Yanmar did little to help owners with blown motors and would not acknowledge the problem publicly. The move to 24 valves was the answer. I switched to JD power and am happy with engines and the companies support. My personal opinion is if your boat can handle the extra weight and has the room go for the larger displacement heavy iron.

    Ellis boats are in the same territory with the Hinckley Picnic Boats. Sooo expensive, beyond the means of many members here. These who can afford such boats prefer to buy so to get more bang for the buck. So that is why you don't see much comments on Ellis boats nor Hinckleys.
