  • Volvo 42 series engine owners

    I've decided to repower my 1997 25 rather than selling her. Accordingly, I may have some parts to unload (or sell the engine as is), such as a recently rebuilt injector pump, a new compressor & an almost new alternator. The engine & hull are down in Edenton at Layton's. I expect to have the engine pulled within the next 5-10 business days should someone wish to go down there & start the engine (it does run but will require a rebuild). Should someone want a spare engine for parts or whatever, let me know.

    What engine are you installing. I have an 06 25 with str. inboard Yanmar 315.Are you the original owner? How many hours on old engine. How is the boat holding up?

      I'm the second owner of the boat. She's a jackshafted '97 model with around 1700 operating hours. I'm fairly certain I'm going with the 315 Yanmar, although I haven't purchased the engine yet. The D4 Volvo is my only other consideration. She's holding up very well, Layton's reconditioned the boat in late 2003 & she still looks brand new (I'm hesitant to describe her as bristol but I'd say she's just one or 2 notches below that).

      As far as the Volvo 42 in the boat now, I'll either sell the engine as is or unbolt the accessory parts (starter, turbo, injector pump & supercharger) & sell them on ebay or someplace & discard the block.
