The Beta43 delivered to Greece UK VAT paid was £6k including the gearbox and an extra 165watt alternator. The prices I was quoted in Greece for Yanmar and Vetus without gearbox were £8-9k, I imagine I could have bought them cheaper in the UK but not that much cheaper

What were the comparative costs of the Yanmar vs the Beta?

We've just put a Beta43 in our Sharki, haven't had a full season yet but we found the Beta people very pleasant to deal with and the the Beta/Kubota package came with a new transmission and was considerably cheaper than the Yanmar option. So far we're very pleased but time as ever will tell

Subject: [Amel] Re engining a Super Maramu
I have been closely reading the posts on this subject.
Has any one re engined with a Beta engine or other naturally aspirated engine? ......no expensive turbo to go wrong!
I would be interested to hear from any one who has not fitted a yanmar .
