Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Steyr engine

Alexandre Uster von Baar

Definitely agree with Mark (as always),
Therefore I would be concerned with the Volvo D3-110 lack of reliability, I am sure you have read the issues on this forum or the (FB) Amel Owner Group.
Because of that, personally, and this is a tough one, I would be tempted with the Steyr and have spare injectors, fuel pump, etc.
Therefore I would research if the Steyr also suffers reliability issues… we only hear of the D3 because most 54 were equipped with one, may be the Steyr are as bad…

That is the point. 
I am sure AMEL
can help with service but Steyr is well known here in Europe
but in Panama or Cook Island?
That it can be
good choice unless it is maintenance-free and reliable
Thx for comments

I think the bigger
decision really depends on where you plan to take your boat.
One of the reasons
boat manufacturers chose Yanmar, Volvo, Onan etc. is because
of the global
network of distributors. I think if I were in your shoes and
were serious about
these boats offered for sale, I would ensure I had a good
comfort level about
being able to service the engine and obtain parts in remote
places. That is if
you place to go to remote places.

I am on market for Amel  and there are two boats in which I
am interested

The question is about engine. Both got Steyr 140hp

As this is not very popular one in  marine industry I
wonder if were there
any issues with this engine?

Does it need any extra service or maintanence?

Working hours are low as 1900h so does not look bad.

I know Steyr as truck but not yacht engine anyway it had
well opinion.
