[Amel] Re engining a Super Maramu


spritoaffine
 

Hello Graham
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

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 .

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

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
