Sundowner’s diesel engine replacement took place during the summer of 2011 while she was on the hard for 5 months. We  replaced the existing high hour Perkins m50 diesel engine with a new Beta Marine 38 diesel engine. We did most of the work ourselves including gutting the entire engine room. We then installed new fuel tanks and new filter, raw water and exhaust systems.

We bought the new Beta Marine 38 through Bud Taplin owner at Worldcruiser Yacht Co and hired him to help with the engine installation and mounting.
